A special thanks to VTech for providing the Miss Frugal Mommy blog with their product for free in exchange for an honest review!
How many times have you opened up your cell phone and discovered that your child has taken 355 selfies and photos of… well… everything in sight! That would be my five year old son, for as long as I can remember he has always enjoyed taking photos. I am still uncomfortable with him walking around with my phone, all it takes is one time that it slips from his hands and it could smash the screen. my son doesn’t want to sit there and take photos of the clouds or a flower. No… he wants to catch images of the cat running through the house, a bird flying through the air, or of himself zipping around the driveway in his scooter. I recently discovered the Vtech Kidizoom action cam, a way for little videographers to capture their adventures!
VTech Kidizoom Action Cam is recommended for age 4+ and features a 1.4 inch color LCD screen and can take videos and photos in addition to stop-motion videos and time-lapse photos. Your child can also explore their creativity with fun effects, frames and photo filters. They can download their photos and videos to a computer and enjoy them with family and friends. This camera also contains a rechargeable battery, micro USB cable for data transfer and battery charging, and expandable memory up to 32GB with a microSD card. Most importantly though is that this is completely a child-friendly camera that can withstand drops and bumps.
I was surprised to discover that this action camera included all of the accessories needed to bring your child on any type of adventure! The camera includes a waterproof case for underwater adventures, mounting accessories for bikes and scooters, and a wrist strap. It is so great knowing that my son can use this camera as he pleases, without the worry of him dropping it or damaging it. We have owned several kid cameras over the years and they unfortunately didn’t survive the destructive ways of young kids. My five year old son is an active and rambunctious child, I have lost track of the amount of toys he has broken due to just being too rough with them. I can finally relax and be rest assured that he is not going to break this camera and he can have as much fun as he wants with it.
I just love hearing my son’s giggles throughout the house and yard as he captures all of his adventures. In addition to being a quality action camera for kids, it also contains three exciting learning games. The overall quality and functionality of this camera far exceeded my exceptions. My son loves taking pictures, he is always sneaking off with my cell phone or iPad to to some photos. I am so thrilled to have finally found a way for my son to express his interest in photography without the worry of the camera getting damaged or broken. If you have a young child that has shown an interest in photography, I highly recommend you give this action camera a try!
