We bought this for our daughter for Christmas but discovered that it doesn't record in color, only black and white. It's also $10 cheaper at Walmart's website. Basically, your paying a lot of money for the monster high label, but it works and she likes it.

This was probably the worst monster high thing we could ever have bought! I bought for my daughters birthday, she had been asking for it for weeks before, and then she opened it up, put batteries in it, turned it on, And it looked like she was about to cry.The video quality is absolutely the worst,and about two days later she needed to put in fresh batteries. I was like "Already?!" so if your buying this for somebody who does like 4-5 videos a day, buy at least a pounds worth of batteries.You'll need them. And about one week later you'll need more.Now my daughter's already asking for a new camcorder for christmas. Warning: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!! TERRIBLE QUALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We bought this camera at Target, which seems to be the exclusive place to buy it (excluding amazon or ebay). We bought it in store for a Christmas gift. It does not come with any memory, so you must have or purchase separately, an SD memory card. My daughter has wanted this for some time, and was super excited when she opened it Christmas morning. Much to all of our dismay, it is a dud.

It it super light-weight, and is very cheaply made. With fresh alkaline batteries, it would do nothing. The instructions offer no help, or troubleshooting guide. The camera will turn on, with a cute little noise. Once or twice, we were able to switch between camera and video modes, but it would only take a single picture, then freeze up. The video mode would not work at all. None of the buttons on the camera work, except the shutter button, (only once) and the light button (but only to turn it on, you cannot turn it off). Once it freezes, you must remove the batteries to turn it off. This process was repeated several times, with duplicate results.

We paid $40 for this camera, but I would expect to see it at the dollar store. Hello Kitty must be getting $35 of those dollars, with Target and china splitting the other $5. This will be going back to Target ASAP.

In order to use this item you must purchase a media card . This was not mentioned in the item description so the gift was useless on Christmas morning for the child to use. Cheap materials. Wouldn't recommend .

My daughter received this as a Christmas present and finally opened it this week. I loaded it up with memory and fresh batteries. The camera after a quick setup would stop working when the shutter button was pushed. The LCD would still work, but all other buttons were in-op. Frustrated, I looked up the reviews on Amazon and found plenty of people with the same problems.

Solution: I found the warranty card and called the (800) number for help. Calling on a Sunday I was surprised when someone picked up. The solution after a quick procedure of taking the battery and memory card out for the gentleman over the phone was to send me a new unit. I will update my review when I get the new camera in a few weeks.

Bought it for my niece for her birthday would be rated higher if it would have notified in the description or instructions that it needs an SD card

Pretty fun recorder for my daughter. But it's very delicate. After putting in batteries for the second time, one of the components that holds the batteries in broke off and now we have to go through quite a process to make sure the batteries will work. If she doesn't close the screen very softly, it recorder won't work at all and then we have to go through the battery process all over again. She definitely has fun with it, though, and we like that she can take movies and pictures with it.

I bought this camera for my 6 year old niece and I'm really disappointed. This is very poor quality, It does not come with any SD memory, and can not find any place to buy that type of memory, Cheap materials drawings are badly painted. Would not recommend

It looks better in picture, the quality was not what I expected for the price. My daughter did love it of course because its Monster High. It did arrive on time but the product had to be sent back because it did not work. I did receive another asap and it works but still not impressed, but because my 8 year old thinks highly of it I decided to keep it.
