The BEST Kid Friendly Digital Cameras - VTech Kidzoom Plus Pink and the Fisher Price Kid Tough - Two Great Cameras!

Updated on February 28, 2010

I LOVE to take photographs. I have a very expensive SLR Digital camera and I take it almost everywhere I go (especially family functions). On more than one occasion I have caught one of my Nieces or Nephews trying to take a picture using my camera. While I don't mind sharing…I do mind when my expensive digital camera is at risk! I probably don't need to tell you this…but most little kids have sticky little fingers and are prone to dropping things. The last thing I need is a smudged up camera lense…or God forbid, a broken camera! I cringe just thinking about it.

My Niece, Sophie is five years old. She is capable of taking a picture…but obviously, she needs a very simple, easy to use, digital camera (big buttons would be ideal). Since her birthday is coming up, I decided to do a little research and find out what kid friendly digital cameras are on the market today. Hopefully, there is one out there that is suitable for a five year old.

Check Out These Kid Friendly Digital Cameras!

First up, the Vtech Kidzoom Plus Pink Digital Camera – First of all, this camera is great for little girls who just so happen to love the color pink. Perfect for little hands, this kid friendly digital camera received four and a half stars out of a possible five…not bad! Not only can kids take great photos with the Vtech Kidzoom Digital Camera, they can shoot video as well (bonus!). This durable camera really aims to please as it comes with photo editing software that is easy to use (so easy a kid can use it!). Designed for children three years of age and up, this camera also has a built in flash, 1.8" inch color screen, and is programmed with several games. All that is required are four AA batteries and a creative kid!

Who hasn't heard of Fisher Price! They are a trusted name when it comes to children's toys and products. The Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Camera is not only reasonably priced, it is tough as well (just as the name implies!). It is available in blue or pink, has easy to use BIG buttons and best of all, it is one of the best-selling children's digital cameras on the market today. If people are buying it, it must be good! Great for taking 4x6 pictures, this digital camera is capable of storing up to five hundred photos. Built to survive drop after drop, the Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Camera also has a built in flash and a 1.5" color LCD preview screen.

I must admit that this last camera I am going to tell you about is my favorite. I am torn between this one and the Vtech Kidzoom Plus Pink Digital Camera for my Niece. She really likes pink…so I should probably go with the Vtech…but personally, I think that the Lego 3MP Digital Camera scores more points in the "cool" department (at least it does in my mind!). The Lego 3MP Digital Camera is more expensive than the two cameras previously mentioned, however, it does come with a few extras.  Though this camera looks as if it were built out of Legos…you CANNOT take it apart. You can however add Legos to the top and bottom of the camera…which in my opinion, is kind of cool. The Lego 3MP Digital Camera can hold up to 80 photos, has a built-in flash, and a 1.5" color LCD screen. It comes with rechargeable batteries which in my book is a bonus as replacing batteries can add up (and become quite expensive). This camera is perfect for children between the ages of three and five.


So there you have it…three kid friendly (durable) digital cameras. Taking photographs is not only fun…it is a wonderful hobby as well. If you know of a creative kid that loves to take pictures, why not buy him or her a kid friendly digital camera to call their own! Most of the kid friendly cameras on the market today are designed to take a beating…which is very important as kids can be ROUGH on their toys. They are also reasonably priced. As always, I suggest you do an internet search in order to compare prices. If you are lucky, you will come across FREE SHIPPING as well! Now one last thing…Say CHEESE!
