Review: Vtech Kidizoom Plus

When A was 2, she discovered that she could be on the other side of the camera and snap pictures of us instead. Not that we mind, but if she had accidentally broken it, we would be really upset. So we've decided to get her her own camera, which would keep her little hands off ours (cheap insurance!) and keep her entertained.

About the product:
  • £49.99 (now £29.99)
  • 3 years +
  • Free Union Jack Faceplate - changeable for personalisation
  • 2MP with zoom and built-in flash
  • Can take video clips
  • 5 different games
  • Edit and enhance photos with fun effects, stamps and borders
  • Can connect to TV and PC (matching coloured cables supplied)
  • 209MB internal memory
  • SD card slot
  • Instant dial selector makes selecting functions easier and quicker

My review:

As planned, A has stopped going after our camera and the Kidizoom Plus has quickly become one of her favourite 'toy'. She filled the internal memory in no time with pictures of all sorts, including those of us I dare not to share.

She quickly learnt how to navigate through the functions, and even taught me how to change volume. The camera is very sturdy and is still going strong even after several accidents and a few intentions.

The camera is designed for 3+ and I can see why. A was more capable of playing the games and understanding the functions now than before. But the camera is so easy to use she's had no problem snapping pictures even at the age of 2.
