My daughter is obsessed with taking photos and after months of letting her use my camera and sometimes my iphone to do this, I decided to buy her the Vtech Kidizoom camera in pink for Christmas. I was very excited for her to open it on Christmas morning and realize that she now actually has her own camera! What a disappointment!
The Vtech Kidizoom Twist camera is a digital camera which can be used to take photos, videos and play games on. Its 256MB built-in memory can store up to 500 photos, while you can store more onto a memory card as it comes with an SD card slot. The camera can also be hooked to the TV or computer to watch the videos taken, as it comes with an A/V cable and USB lead. The camera itself looks well made and robust, by that meaning that it can withstand dropping onto hard surfaces without falling to bits. However, the screen is tiny and the picture quality not so good, but then again what can you expect for that price? The photos taken are mostly blurred, obviously, she is only little and hasn't got the steadiest of hands, but on my camera and iphone she takes excellent photos without any blurring?! The 5 games that are on it are also not very exciting for any child who has played games on an ipad, nintendo or any other game console, so are not likely to interest many children for very long. I think the only good feature is that you can edit and enhance photos with effects, stamps and borders, but what good is that when the photos come out so blurred?! Needless to say that this camera will eat your batteries up for fun.
The Vtech Kidizoom has probably been used no more than four or five times since bought. I should have probably spent another £20 or so and bought her a second hand ipod off Ebay to use as a camera and play games on. I would not recommend this product, but this is my personal opinion only of course, and many people may think that this is a great toy camera!
