A Guide on How to Use Viva Pinata Vision Cards

1. Pinata Vision only becomes active after you’ve completed the tutorial and reach level 4. If you try to use the Vision camera before this it won’t work. Leafos will prompt you when you can start using your cards.

2. Make sure the zoom on the camera is turned all the way around to the right. If that doesn’t work, try turning it all the way to the left.

3. Make sure you’re in a very well lit room. You need a lot of light, but be careful that there’s no glare on the card.

4. The easiest way to use a card is to print it out from a colour printer. Move the paper slowly towards the camera until the blue lines capture the edges of the card. Keep moving it forward slowly until the light goes green. The card will usually fit the Pinata Vision window perfectly before the Pinata pops into your garden.

5. If you do need to use your Vision Camera on your computer screen, make sure the screen is bright and there’s no glare on it. If you have a laptop it’s easier to move the screen than the camera.

6. If you’re getting a red light keep trying the card at slightly different angles – eventually it will be picked up.

7. If you’re getting an amber light then the card has been recognised but there’s some other problem stopping you from getting the Pinata.

8. One general point – if the barcode or any of the borders of the card are obscured it won’t work. Make sure there’s no glare or misplaced fingers over the borders of the card.
