Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Vtech - Kidizoom Spin & Smile Digital Camera (Toy)
The camera in this photo looks blue, yet when it arrived it is actually purple.
This may or may not be an issue for someone else, yet I ordered a pink one for my granddaughter and a "blue" one for my grandson, BUT my granddaughter's favorite color is purple! Not sure what I will do... may just return both, or give them both a purple camera. I just would have preferred the camera be the blue color as pictured.
Since these cameras were purchased as Christmas gifts for 2011, they have not been used, yet I trusted the reviews as relates to fun, educational value, and durability - all reviews were very positive.

It's not a true, bright royal blue, and the photo here on Amazon does make it look like that. It does have a more muted, slightly purplish hue to it, that is true. My 11 year old's favorite color is blue, and she never once has said anything about it being purple (and she would say, she's like that :) ) I think if you gave it to your grandson, he'll see it as blue and you won't have any issues.

Thanks. The information about the color is very helpful. I was all set to get this for my 7 year old son until I read your review. He would not enjoy going around with a purplish camera. He sees it as a "girl color".
