VTech Kidizoom Action Cam

My kids love to take photos and videos. Hmmmm, wonder where they got that from? 😉

A few times in the past I’ve handed over a small {cheap} digital camera, yet even those give me heart palpitations when in the hands of kids. Why? Because, kids. They drop tech items no matter how careful they are, even if it’s a bang into another item. Time has proven that kids just need kid-proof items.

One recent item which really interested my kids is my husbands GoPro camera. How could it not, right? While in Mexico this Spring, and with supervision, the kids took photos and videos one day at the pool, using my husbands action cam. They had blast despite not leaving his arms reach. The experience was so guided that they couldn’t really have too much fun with it, and thus they started asking for their own. Yeah, right.

VTech has new tech gear out, that solves that very problem. The Kidizoom Action Cam is a durable kid-sized camera that is very much like a GoPro – but entirely geared for kids use. It comes in two colours, purple and the yellow/black and is intended for kids aged 4+.

The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam is easy to use, my 6 years olds navigated the simple buttons on the very first try. It captures photos and video and also has special effects, filters and frames. Beyond the basic point and shoot, it also has stop motion, time-lapse and multi-shoot capabilities. You can also view and delete captures right on the device, by viewing the 1.4 inch LCD screen.

Proving this has staying power with kids attentions, my girls started with the basic photos and videos and then they expanded their captures with all the additional features. 

My girls first attached it to their bikes, using the included mounts. Since I have two girls, they were taking turns attaching it to their bikes – which was a simple job for me to do each time. The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam also can mount to skateboards, helmets or with double sided tape – to pretty much anything they want.

Of course the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam can also be hand-held as well, it comes with a strap to use on their wrists yet note that if it’s dropped, it’s so durable there’s no need to worry. The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam also comes with an additional case for the cam, so that it can be taken underwater {up to 6 feet} as well. I really like how all the mounts and cases are included with the one purchase. The only thing you might want to purchase is a microSD card to have more memory, yet so far I haven’t found a need for it.

When it comes to download the captures, simply use the included USB and files transfer without the need to download any program first. This cannot get easier! 

The quality is good for a kid-sized cam, of course if the lighting is ideal, they are better. While I wouldn’t depend on it for my own photos and videos, kids sure are impressed and that’s the point here. It’s capturing their daily lives how they see it, and making fun videos when with friends.

The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam went with us on a recent camping trip and the girls captured everything from friends, bike rides, trees, flowers, the river, our trailer and more. Photos and video tours. It was fun looking through the files and seeing what they find interesting. Plus, it gave them something fun to play with and do for days, as it even comes with3 built-in action-themed games, something other action cams don’t have.

I have a feeling we’ll have a lot more memories captured this summer, including a video of myself making s’mores by the fire and some gooey kids after eating them.
