V Tech Children's Camera Review

The Vtech Kidizoom Twist camera for kids is a wonderful gift for a child between the ages of three and seven years old. Especially if you are interested in photography and you want your son or daughter to pick up the same interest. This camera is a very decent digital camera for a child. Here are some of the great features this camera actually has.

Twist Lense

One of the best features of the Kidizoom camera by Vtech is the fact that it has a twist lense. This means that your child can take self portraits as well as outward images. This makes it fun and easy to take pictures for young children. It's sturdy design makes it easy for children to grab hold of both sides and take photos whenever they want to.


It has 4 x digital zoom which is good for a basic digital camera for children.


The camera takes 4 AA batteries that you insert at either end of the camera. It has a lock feature where you place the batteries so it is not easily accessible for children. Which is good because batteries can be dangerous for children under the age of four years old.


You can take about 400 pictures and 10 videos depending on their length on the internal memory. However, you can actually expand the memory with an SD card which is really good for children who are really creative. You can use a USB cable and connect it to your PC to download games and apps from the Vtech website which is another really cool feature.


it does have a pretty powerful flash for the camera, you can't exactly take really bright pictures in the middle of the night. However, it works in a low lit room which is nice.

Fun Features

The Vtech Kidzoom camera has many cute and fun features on it. There are five cool games already installed however, you can download other games from the Vtech website with free V coins you get when you first register your camera. You can also purchase games and apps from the site. You can also frame the pictures with fun animal and character frames and create stickers and badges with the pictures.

Ease of Use

The camera is very easy to use, my son is just three years old and he managed to get to grips with it within a couple of hours. It is really easy to hold and really easy to understand the features. I would recommend this camera to anyone who has a child who loves being creative. It will give your son or daughter hours of fun. The only thing that could be thought of as a negative would be the fact that when you are deleting unwanted pictures, you have to do it one by one. You cannot just select all and delete however, it is a great camera for children between the ages of three and seven years old. It is also suitable for older children because although it is basic, it is a fully functioning digital camera. You can purchase it from most good toy stores and online for about $60.
