My son recently turned four years old, and I wanted to get him something cool for his birthday. I decided on a digital camera so that he can keep his grubby little hands off mine. I actually wanted to get him a camera for Christmas 2006, but since I am a late shopper the one I wanted was all sold out, everywhere.
Of course, I got sucked in by the commercials advertising the Fisher Price Kids-Tough Digital Camera. I decided that, that was the one I had to have. Never mind that it was averaging about 70 bucks. Well, when his birthday came around, I got it for him. When I finally opened it up, I was completely disappointed. Okay, so I know it is a kid's camera and won't take the best quality pictures, but, seriously, this Fisher Price digital camera was a piece of crap.
I promptly boxed that sucker up and took it back to the store. I decided that before I left, I was going to test the new camera out first. So here I was, at the counter, asking for scissors, and insisting I open up the Fort Knox packaging before I leave the store. I have my batteries and tools in hand.
The digital camera that I finally did end up purchasing was leaps and bounds better than the Fisher Price camera. There are quite a few more features likes games, video recording, and image options than the Fisher Price digital camera. The picture quality is a little bit better and you can actually see the image on the screen. My son loves his camera and I love that it was about $10.00 less than the original one.
If you are in the market for a digital camera for a child, the V Tech Kidizoom Digital Camera is the way to go.
