Vtech Kidizoom Video Camera – Review & Giveaway

by Insomniac Mummy on November 30, 2010

Remember back in the 80′s when the most technologically advanced Christmas gift Santa delivered was Major Morgan? My, my, my how times have changed!

These days my both my 4 year old and 18 month old can play games on my iPhone with ease, with the 4 year old also developing a budding interesting taking photos and recording short videos. So, when the people at Argos contacted me and asked me if I’d like to review the Vtech Kidizoon Video Camera, I could’ve kissed them!

The Vtech Kidizoom Video Camera is one of Argos’  ‘Top Ten Toys for Christmas’. Suitable for children aged 4+, it’s a little miracle of modern technology. Retailing at £59.99 and available in blue or pink, it’s incredibly robust, yet perfect for small hands to hold. The controls are simplistic, and the technology is brilliant! It records VGA movies, can take real 2.0 megapixel photos and has a 256MB internal memory, which can be expanded with an SD card.

Not only can you record digital video and take photographs, you can also edit your videos, add effects and animations, plus with the in built face recognition technology you can virtually ‘custard pie’ your family and friends. There are also three fun games to play. I cannot sing the praises of this toy enough!

Want to get your hands on one? Well here’s your chance!

Courtesy of Argos (who provide a wide range of toys including Lego and Barbie Dolls), I have a fabulous Vtech Kidizoom Video Camera, in either pink or blue, to giveaway to one lucky reader. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment below. Plus, for an extra entry, copy, paste and tweet the text below:
