The VTech Kidizoom Digital Camera was really a great invention. My children both always want my camera so buying this was a no brainer. The memory is a perfect size for children who really don't need to store pictures for any long period of time. The display screen is really no different than the display screens on Kodak, Canon and other various digital cameras that adults use. When trying to snap a picture there is a delay and blurryness on the screen before even snapping the photo. This camera also has 3 preschool games which my 4 year old enjoys from time to time.
The durability on this camera is phenominal. I'm a mom of two boys, believe me it's been tried and tested. My son got this for his 4th birthday and after a week of not being able to find it he showed me where it was stashed. Under my deck, covered with water droplets, grass and condensation. I thought for sure we were gonna have to consider this a pocketbook loss, but to the contrary! It still works great. I do think this product is a bit overpriced. It's really the durability factor you are paying for since you could go by a regular cheapo digital camera from most any store or used.
I had trouble uploading this camera's pictures to my computer. I figured since I put my cameras SD memory card in this Vtech that uploading would be as simple as taking the card out and shoving it in my computer. Not the case. I was a little upset about it being so tedious to uploading pictures of floors, ceilings and half of peoples faces.
The age recommendation on this is 3yrs to 6yrs and I'd agree with that.
