I was sent a VTech Kidizoom Camera to try out and review. My five year-old loved trying out the camera and exploring her skills as a photographer. On our last family vacation she starting using our expensive digital camera to take pictures. She took so many pictures that we downloaded them into her own album to document the trip from her perspective.
When we got home we began researching online for an appropriate digital camera for her. We found the Kidizoom and had it on the list to get for her birthday. Then I was presented with this opportunity to try one out, so we made other birthday choices.
She has enjoyed the freedom of using the camera on her own without me hovering around reminding her to be careful not to drop it. After a few minutes of instruction she figured out how to navigate the features on the home menu and how to edit the pictures she’d taken. She loves having her own camera and I love seeing her the images she captures.
The Kidizoom Camera can be purchased for $39.99. on Amazon.com or VTech’s website.
