Updated on August 10, 2011

Kids love toys that let them pretend that they are just like their parents. The gadgets we review in best video cameras for kids will allow them to take high quality video just like their dad.

Kids today are so tech savvy that soon they will be shooting better movies than you. Below you will find the best new video cameras available for kids.

What to look for in a kids video camera:

  • Impact resistant: Let's face it, these video cameras are going to get dropped.
  • High quality video: Just because it's for kids that doesn't mean that it's OK for the video to be low quality.
  • Easy to use: The camera must be easy to use with small hands, as well as simple to understand.
  • Goo resistant: My kids hand's seem to attract various sticky chocolate type substances. Their camcorders can't stop working because of this.
  • Brightly colored: Kids prefer this and it makes the video camera harder to lose.

MoviePix Kids Digital Video Recorder

This bright indigo gadget looks like a toy straight out of a sci-fi movie, with it's attractive black focusing ring on the top and a shining matt finish. The two light indicators just below the focusing ring and the 3.8 cms semi-detachable LCD screen definitely gives it that funky yet professional design.
