A Real Digital Camera for Kids
As digital cameras started to replace traditional film
cameras, they put the power of great photography in the hands of virtually
everyone who could hold a camera. Without the worry of paying for film,
shutterbugs could now take as many photos as they wanted (making it easier to
get great shots) and delete anything that didn’t look good. The only ones left
out of the fun were often little kids, who weren’t trusted to play with their
parents’ new-fangled, high-tech (and expensive) toys.
But Fisher-Price took away that barrier. At the end of 2006, they introduced the Kid-Tough Digital Camera, which they called, “the first preschool-appropriate digital camera that is tough enough and easy enough for a preschooler to use.” The Fisher-Price “Tough” camera quickly became a favorite of kids, parents and critics. In 2007, the camera earned the Electronic Entertainment Toy of the Year award at the Toy Industry Association's annual T.O.T.Y. Awards in New York.
Despite its popularity, some people complained about the small
internal memory capacity, the small LCD screen and the poor photo quality.
Since then, the toy company has continued to innovate and improve. The Fisher-Price Tough camera line now includes a waterproof camera for kids and a video camera, too.
The Kid-Tough digital cameras are made for 3 to 7 year-olds and have been upgraded from the original model to now include a 1.6-inch viewfinder, a storage capacity of 500+ digital images, 4X digital zoom, enhanced low-light performance and photo editing software. Parent reviews on various online sites show that kids will absolutely love this camera, but parents may be disappointed in the quality (640x480 on low resolution or 1.3 megapixels on high resolution).
The Fisher-Price “Tough” camera line also includes a video camera made for budding young filmmakers. The manufacturer says the camcorders are made to “survive drop and drop after drop.” It features a 1.4-inch LCD preview screen, rubberized dual handle grips and built-in memory that will store up to 5 minutes of video.And both the cameras and camcorders come in a choice of blue and pink, so boys and girls can both sport their favorite colors.
Aspiring photographers and videographers will love the Fisher-Price Tough
camera models. Now they can be just like Mom and Dad!
And parents can stop worrying about having their expensive equipment dropped by little hands.
