Sturdy Design Ideal for Young Photographers

Engineered with children's small hands in mind, the Kidizoom Spin & Smile Digital Camera comes with easy-to-grip, rounded sides and large, intuitive buttons. Kidizoom's sturdy design helps withstand rough handling by young photographers. While not indestructible, this camera stood up to repeated drops on a cement floor during testing.

Kidizoom comes with a twisting lens that flips effortlessly into position as well as a timer, taking the guesswork out of self-portraits and group shots. A zoom wheel activates the 4X digital zoom, while dual viewfinders and a full-color screen make it easy for children to compose pictures.

The camera screen's compact size does make it challenging to predict the photo quality before viewing on a television or computer monitor. Do not expect this 2.0 megapixel camera to take sharp photos of squirmy subjects in low-light conditions.

Zany Special Effects Unleash Creativity

Kidizoom allows your child to add silly hairstyles, wacky distortion, and colorful frames to photos. These can be easily viewed on a computer or television. Parents will need to spend a little time helping younger children find and use the editing features to allow them to fully unleash their creativity. Your child can also record movies with funny cartoon animations and scene-setting frames. A video recorder lets kids record and then distort voices, adding echo effects or robot intonations.

Along with the editing options, five preloaded games--including a photo puzzle, detective game, and germ-fighting adventure--will provide hours of educational entertainment for your child.

Built-In Memory Stores Hundreds of Photos

With 256 megabytes of internal memory, there's room for hundreds of photos or more than 10 minutes of video. The camera also supports up to 2 gigabytes of additional space by adding an SD card (sold separately).

My 5 yr old grandson was visiting when this camera arrived. We opened the box together, figured out where the "on" button was, and that's all he needed. It's been almost a week, and he just doesn't want to put it down. Obviously, 5 yr olds don't sit down and read the instructions, but the camera is so kid-friendly that he figured out how to take videos and photos and play the games by himself - no instructions necessary. I did show him how to use the special effects on photos, but that took just a minute or two of instructions, and he understood and used that feature perfectly. I'm impressed with the quality of the photos! I attach the camera with the included USB cord, and bring the photos up on my computer for my grandson to see. So far we have not needed to add a memory card, but it's nice that it includes that feature.

I consider this a fun toy, but educational as well. My grandson has learned how to look "in the window" and find what he wants a photo of before snapping the picture -- a lesson in photography and patience. The games are fun, mainly because you move the camera to move the game characters, which is unique.

We now have photos of everything from the cat's tail to the hummingbirds at the window. It's fun to see the world through the eyes of a five year old.

I highly recommend this camera. It is very sturdy, and very, very easy to use right out of the box. I know my grandson will enjoy this camera for many years to come.

Pros: The Vtech Kidizoom combines in one unit features normally found in several different devices and makes them accessible to kids through a colorful interface and menu system that are easy to use with the back video screen and buttons. The Kidizoom is a still camera, a video camera, a voice recorder and a basic portable gaming system. It has in-camera software that allows kids to add cartoon effects to their images and tweak sound recordings before transferring them to a computer hard drive. With photos, you can do things like add decorative borders and colorful symbols. You can take a picture of a person's face and put it on a cartoon body, for instance. With sound recordings, you can add a few basic distortions (higher/lower pitch, slower, etc.). Kids can have fun with this while manipulating voice recordings. The camera seems fairly robust and able to withstand a normal amount of wear and tear. Both sides of the camera have rubber grips that are easy to hold. The lens can be rotated to point back at the user, making it easier to take self-portraits while composing the image with the back screen. The camera has a pair of viewfinders so kids don't have to close one eye, although the video screen on the back will probably get far more use when composing images. Camera resolution can be manually set to either 2 or 0.3 megapixels, which means your kids won't be clogging up your computer's hard drive with large image files. 2MP may not sound like much, but pictures are large enough to fill a computer monitor's screen (video is much lower resolution, however, and nowhere close to filling the screen). Images, video and sounds can be captured on a small internal storage drive or an SD or SDHC memory card (not included), and the camera has a USB connection port.Read more ›

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first thing I noticed when I took this camera out of the box is the "dual viewfinders" (that is, a lens for each eye) in the past, when my teenagers were younger, they had trouble focusing with a single viewfinder. The camera seems to be very sturdy, and while I have not dropped it on the floor, I believe that it could withstand a fall to the floor. I turned the camera over to my 11 year old and asked her to play around with it and tell me what she thought. After a few minutes she came back into the room and began showing me how she could manipulate the pictures she had taken. She quickly figured out all of the features with no help, but even a younger child (say 6 or 7) could probably figure the features out with a little demonstration. I don't think this is going to replace my daughter's other digital camera, but she did seem to enjoy playing with it, and showing her little cousin how to use the camera (she is 7 and picked it right up) I think this is a great "starter" camera for kids who are old enough for a "real" camera, but not old enough for a more expensive model. This camera is large enough for small hands to hold onto, and sturdy enough to withstand the fall if it is dropped. Overall, I am very pleased with this camera.

First off, this is NOT a print-quality digital camera. This is a kids toy that takes pictures. As long as you're okay with this, then this might be the toy for you.

We got this for my 4-year old daughter. Up until we got it for her, she would sneak our expensive digital camera and take pictures. Although they were somewhat funny as pictures from the perspective (and height) of a 4-year old can be, we didn't tend to save many of them.

With this toy she can take all the pictures she wants and then manipulate them somewhat easily. They are not as easy to manipulate say like on an iPhone, but after showing her two or three times, she was able to figure most of the other features out.

I think the iPhone is a good comparison. The iPhone is much easier to use because of the touch screen features. However, this does voice manipulation like some of the apps on the iphone as well as some video and photo effects. But if she drops it, the screen won't crack. It seems to be pretty durable and should resist many drops. All and all, it's a well-priced toy that will be great for kids from 4 to probably 7.

It takes 4 AA batteries (included).

PROS
Low resolution means you can take lots of pictures. They won't generally be print-quality worthy but you could print a couple just for fun but be warned that they will not be that great of quality.
Perfect for kids from the ages of 4 to about 7.
Medium-difficulty to use. With the iPhone the example of something that is easy to use.
Not too many features so as to make it too difficult to use.
All in all this is a really good item and I would highly recommend it for someone who has shown an interest in taking photos as a first camera.

CONS:
The only con I can think of is that it is not waterproof as I'm sure that is where this is most vulnerable.
