No digital camera review on CIAO would be complete without a few entries about cameras designed for kids. After all, kids are almost universally enthusiastic about taking pictures. And parents with a love of photography often pass down their passion to their children. But digital cameras are not always kid-friendly, due to fragile construction, price, or complicated menus and buttons. The newest trend in children's electronics is a group of digital cameras made especially for small children. These cameras are easy to hold, come in bright colors that kids love, and have many of the same features as grown-up digital cameras. Kids love them.

The VTech KidiZoom Digital Camera is one of the top digital cameras for kids. This camera was made with fun in mind. Kids like the KidiZoom's large LCD screen and the onboard photo editing options. Prepare for your young ones to take candid shots of you, then "improve" them by warping the pictures in silly ways or adding funny frames. The camera can store up to 120 photos or 5 minutes of video.

This resilient camera is sturdy enough to handle the tumbles that it will inevitably face. Designed specifically for children ages 3-6, the VTech KidiZoom Digital Camera has large buttons that are easy to manage. It also has two large grips for small hands, and a dual viewfinder. Kids can connect the camera to their television or PC and show off their work to friends and family. They can add special effects to photos and videos. Another popular feature are the games that come with the camera. Three games geared toward preschoolers are included with the VTech KidiZoom Digital Camera. The camera also comes with a set of headphones that can be plugged into the side to keep game noise to a minimum.

Some of the VTech Kidizoom's additional features include:

.3 megapixels with an 1.8" color screen
Double viewer or LCD screen for easy photo taking
Connector cables for TV or PC hook-up
Photo editing capabilities
SD card slot for extra memory
Three preschool games
Changeable faceplates
16MB internal memory (200 photos or 5 min video)

Parents who bought the VTech KidiZoom Digital Camera praise its solid structure. Children who received this camera as a gift were very pleased with it. Some users mentioned that the camera is too dim in low lighting, and the videos are very low resolution, but that those things were expected from a child's camera. In all the KidiZoom is a wonderful camera for young photographers to learn with, and the games and special image effects add to the fun.

Digital cameras have become a common part of our daily lives. Since children always want to do what the grown-ups are doing, it was only a matter of time before companies started producing digital cameras with kids in mind. The VTech KidiZoom Digital Camera is a top rated camera with tons of extra features that will keep kids entertained for many hours.

The VTech KidiZoom Digital Camera can be purchased in toy stores, online or off.
