VTech Kidizoom Action Cam Review

KidiZoomI’m sure you’ve seen the expensive GoPro video camcorders that  capture all of your action video. What if you could purchase a similar product at a fraction of the cost, specifically designed for kids, to capture all of their action while they are skateboarding, swimming and biking?

Well, you can.  That is exactly what the waterproof VTech Kidizoom Action Cam was designed to do.

  • Durable, versatile and waterproof
  • Rechargeable battery records video for 2.5 hours
  • Mounts quickly to skateboards, bikes and more with the 2 mounts provided
    Takes videos, photos and time-lapse photographs
  • Comes with kids games, fun photo effects, frames and filters
    Features 1.4 inch color video camera LCD screen
    Available in both yellow and purple

The Cost

This action cam retails for just under $60 BUT, as I write this, Amazon has it on sale!

Pros

The list of features on this inexpensively priced action camcorder is pretty impressive. It has a waterproof attachment that allows for video recording and snapshots to be taken in up to 6 feet of water.

Two different attachments can mount this digital camera to just about anything your child wears or rides. It’s durably constructed and has been tested by real kids. You can choose from either yellow or purple colors, and download videos and photos using the micro USB cable accessory which is included with your purchase.

This “toy” camera also saves you money since you do not have to buy replacement batteries. A rechargeable battery runs for up to 2 and a half hours of video recording. This is the perfect action camera for kids from about 4 to 10 years of age.

It is capable of recording and holding up to 278,400 photos or 4 hours of 640 x 480 resolution video. You can also improve storage via the microSD card slot and a 32 GB microSD card (sold separately). On the price side of the equation, this is an affordable purchase that parents, grandparents and children’s gift shoppers are going to love.

Cons

While this affordable kids action camera has a lot going for it, it does not record HD video.

At 1.4 inches, the LCD screen is rather small.

Only has a 3 month warranty

 

Customer Reviews

At the time of writing, this is the #1 best seller in Kids’ Electronic Learning & Education Systems on Amazon and customers give it a 4.3 out of 5 star rating.

Most customers really liked this action cam however, I have to say that there are quite a few reviews that have the same complaints:

  1. The batteries quickly start to not hold a charge
  2. The case is not completely waterproof.
  3. The warranty is only 3 months and it is not as sturdy as they expected for a kids action cam.

Conclusion

With so many electronic distractions, anything that promotes active play is a good thing. That is why the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam makes the perfect purchase for parents that want to promote an active lifestyle for their children. It makes your kids want to get outside and get active. Budget shoppers looking for a durable kids action camera will also be very happy with the attractive price tag.

Make sure you take it out and test it before the short warranty period is up!
