Get Ready to Show off Your Child's Photos

It's apparent when you take it out of the box, that this camera was designed to withstand the tough play and rough handling that kids are capable of. The big rubber grips on each side make it easy for children to grasp the camera with both hands, and two-eye viewing make it easy to foucus on thier subject.

The camera also comes with two different faceplates, so your child can customize the look.

Six buttons and a navigational joystick on the back of the camera let your child pick a mode and scroll through old photos. Between taking photos, shooting videos, and playing simple games on the 1.8-inch color screen, there's lots to do.


A built-in flash makes it easier to get well-lit pictures, especially if the subject of the photo is indoors. The flash does, however, often fire if you are trying to take a close-up shot, resulting in very bright, blown-out pictures. Inexperienced photographers may need to be reminded that the camera is not designed to focus on objects that are less than 1.5-feet from the camera. For super-sized fun, you can also link the camera to your television using the included A/V cable and view creative work on the big screen.


With 16MB of internal memory and an SD card slot so that you can add capacity if you need it, this camera lets kids collect lots of images. The included USB cable lets you upload the images to your computer. The VTech photo editor lets you or your child add cool frames to photos, stamp funny hats on people, and distort images. You can even run fun animations that makes the photo look like it is rotating or underwater.


The photo editor interface is easy to use, with big round buttons for kids to click on and drag-and-drop stamps. More advanced artists may be disappointed that there aren't more ways to creatively control output, but files from the Kidizoom can easily be edited in more advanced programs, too.

Vtech sports 2 lines, the Kidizoom Junior and the Kidizoom Plus.

Our Thoughts:

The Ups: Real digital camera takes photos, videos and plays games


The Downs: Designed for ages 3 and up the many navigational buttons may confuse younger photographers.


In a Nutshell: This rugged, easy to operate camera is a fun way to inspire learning and creativity.

Before your child starts taking photos, you'll need to install batteries (4 "AA" batteries not included with the camera).

While the first few photos are being taken, you may want to set up the VTech Photo Editor on your computer. 

The installation wizard makes this process quick and easy. You'll need Windows 2000 SP3+/XP or newer to use this software. And don't despair if you're a Mac user. As long as you have Mac OS X 10.0 or above, you can still use the camera in mass storage mode.
