My daughter loved this camera. It's definitely durable and kid-friendly both in it's grip (how it feels in your hands) and the user-interface. The games and photo/editing features are really easy to play with. The video features are definitely a hit with my kids and it has inspired many short films already. The camera also has fun sound effects including music during the games. Best of all, there's an auto shut-off feature so it's not left on. My one thought for improvement is maybe the creation of a sliding cover for the lens because little fingers are always curious about touching that glass and once it's smudged it's hard to clean.
I highly recommend the Kidizoom Camera Connect for your kids (recommended for ages 3-8). My kids have asked for a camera for years and now I have a camera I'm comfortable letting them run wild filling their movie director desires.

My 2 year old daughter received this as a Christmas gift from her godmother because she loves taking pictures with our camera or from our phone. It is a good camera for a little toddler who knows nothing about picture quality and likes the hear the sound of the camera snapping the picture. I think that's my daughter favorite part. This camera was more of a big hit than the leappad 2 she received for Christmas. It comes with a few games that my daughter isnt really interested in playing and holds quite a few pictures. She just snaps away. Overall I think the camera is a little overpriced. If you get on a sale then great but $40 is too much considering vtech doesn't make good quality toys made to last (my opinion).

This is a good camera. It has several bells and whistles. However, in my mind it is missing a few things. First, the camera does not provide an instant playback after a picture is taken. You must go into the menu options, pressing exactly 4 button presses in order to view a previous picture. Second, the camera has a very slow processor....unless the camera and subject hold perfectly still, the picture will end up blurred. The cheap $28 adult camera I recently bought at Walmart had a faster processor. Even my 6 year old ends up with blurry pictures half the time. Anyhow, that would be my feedback on the camera....hope that helps!

Amazon website recommends the incorrect memor card.
I received the câmera and got frustrated that the memory bought based on Amazon's guide was incorrect.
This camera uses Micro-SD memory card.
BE AWARE

Your child will certainly not be taking award-winning photographs with this camera, but who cares? My 4-year-old daughter could not be more thrilled with this item. She is taking pictures and videos and having fun scrolling back through them, and she does not care/notice their quality. Best of all, she is now leaving my iPhone alone, which she was previously using for its camera feature. She loves having this at her disposal. I am seeing the price on this fluctuate quite a bit. We paid $24.00 for it which I think is just about right. I wouldn't pay much more than $30.00, though.

After, spending large amounts of time reading reviews on children's cameras I decided to purchase this one for my three year old. The primary reason I went with this camera was for the large number of pictures it stated it could store. However, after receiving this item and letting my daughter use it the memory was quickly maxed out. I played with the settings and realized that the 800-1000 pictures the company states it will hold must not be for the 1.3 megapixel photos that the company advertised. It seems to be for the .3 megapixel photos that you can change to within the settings. I find this to be false or at least misleading advertising.

That being said my daughter does enjoy snapping pictures. The quality of the photos is poor, but what I expected for a 1.3 megapixel camera. Of course now we are using the .3 which is even worse.

Ansel, thank you for your feedback. I am not sure if you still have the packaging that the Kidizoom camera came in but on the front of the box it will state that it stores 800+ photos expands with microSD card. This means it can hold up to 800 + pictures with the use of a microSD card. We appreciate your feedback and will share this with our Product Development team for future products. Thank you again for your feedback in helping us make our products better.

We've had it for a few days now, and my 4 year old likes playing with it. She doesn't notice that the pictures are low resolution, and she doesn't seem to mind that the display screen is small. Those are really my only complaints (comparing it to a "real" camera), and since I'm not the one using it, those criticisms aren't being weighted very much.

The pros are:
1) takes AA batteries (I'm using NiMH rechargables, but haven't had the camera long enough to say whether it "eats" batteries or not)
2) simple user interface, but still has enough features like digital zoom, video and sound recording, etc. that it will not be tossed aside after a few hours of use
3) it is easy to delete all the pictures/videos at once and clear the memory for more playing
4) there is a volume control for the sound effects and playback
5) really does seem well designed for a child user - the lens is recessed to resist smudging and scratching, the buttons are well arranged, and the sides are covered in a rubbery coating to resist drops and dings.

I wish it took good pictures as well ;) but that's beside the point.

Every photo we've taken has been blurry, regardless of what we do. It takes too long to capture the photo.

Great camera for child. My daughter who is 4 has always shown an interest in photography because she sees me taking pictures all of the time. I never felt comfortable with her using my expensive dslr and this I found was perfect for her age! The quality is not like you would find in a point and shoot or dslr but for a child is perfect. You can hook it up to yor computer and save the pictures they took. It's very user friendly for the kids to learn and there are various settings to where they can have stickers and frames on the pictures and have fun creating faces! My daughter loves it.

I bought this camera because my 3-year-old loves to take pictures and I was afraid she might one day break my phone. She loves this one. If you expect good pictures from it, you'll be disappointed, but if you want a camera as a toy, it's perfect. There are several extra features on the camera for creativity etc, which she doesn't know how to use and is too impatient to learn. While the recommended age range is 3-8 yrs, I think it's closer to 5-8 for knowing how to get the most use out of it. If it lasts that long, I will update my review.
