No it's not it's truly awful! Just because it's for the kids doesn't mean it can be rubbish.

2 Gb, awful lens, digital zoom ............................... It just takes dreadful pictures. A toy in every sense.

To be honest, 3 years old is far too young to manage any proper camera. I guess you could get one of the (expensive) waterproof/shockproof ones on the market now, or maybe this toy is the right answer for now but don't expect it to be anything else.

I disagree - it totally depends on the child. We let our daughter use our Sony camera without problem. Just get the wrist strap on and give your kids a bit of credit! At 4 she got her own. Was happy to spend £40 on a Fuji to overcome the disappointment of the AWFUL Kiddizoom. Granted, we had the original which was even worse, but I'd avoid this at all costs.

If you want to get them as cheap a camera as possible you'd be better getting a proper one!

I got my son one of these for his birthday, it's an excellent little camera for a child, yeah it's not a 14mp camera, but it's for a kid. It also has a few games built in. I paid £35 and think I was worth every penny and my son loves it

I bought one of these for my little girl's second birthday a couple of weeks back. As she's two years old and not twenty, I'm not expecting her to be taking anything approaching Vogue magazine cover shots, but wanted something better than the singalong camera she was pretending to take photos with, so she could see the fruits of her labours and try to progress her understanding a bit. For this purpose, this camera fits the bill exactly. I can't comment about the built-in games on it as I've not had a look at them, but the photo review setting is a bit odd and seems to show the photos on the camera in a random order, rather than the way you'd expect them (typical bloke, I've not read the manual to see if this can be changed).

All in all, I've found that my little girl now seems to understand that she has to point the camera at the thing she wants to take a picture of, and hold the camera steady until the photo has been taken.

Whilst I agree with matey above that just because something's for kids, it shouldn't be poor (a huge gripe I have about restaurants and their kiddie menus), but if your 2-3 year old has got the skills that mean a lower-quality camera isn't man enough for the job, why would you even be looking at something like this and not at some big old DSLR???

Hopefully, at age 4, she'll be snapping away like a good 'un and I'll make the appropriate investment then.

My lad's had 2 of these as the pillock next door buried and watered one! Picture quality is OK, I was fed up of him using mine and now he's 6 and we've bought him a decent cheapish proper camera. He played with the games no end and took some greeat pics of the cats - given time over would buy again & at this price great value!
#13
You're better off getting a normal but slightly outdated one from fleabay for a quarter of the price, better quality&better to use, and no worries about breaking because could buy 4-6 for price.
My 2 year old was given uncles old digital camera - panasonic something, about 5 yrs old, can take photos&videos, biggest problem we have is finding it!!
#14
Great little camera, kids will love it. Nice big buttons, a few games, throw in a 4Gb SD card and they will fill it full of videos which they will take when you least expect it, and then play it back with great amusement. Yes not the best quality photos or video but good enough, and it can be thrown down the stairs time and time again with no bother.
#15
If you're worrying about image quality and features when looking at this camera you're clearly missing the point. It's designed as a toy. That means children can play with it without it breaking. I don't expect the cars my nephew plays with to be getting good 0-60 times and having good boot space, so I'd not be expecting a toy camera he plays with to be getting APS-C sensor quality pics.

My 3 year old has had this camera for a year now and he absolutely loves it. He spends as much time playing the games as taking photos. You know what, it's not about the image quality! He isn't going to take the SD card out and download the photos. He just wants to take photos, see them on the display and play the games. Stick rechargeable batteries in and they last for months! Every 6 months or so we download the photos and videos and have a giggle. Great product which has been dropped downstairs and thrown on concrete many times and it just keeps on going.

Great price too as we paid £35 which was a good deal as it was £59 everywhere else!

£23.49 at play.com, bit of a price war going on from the looks of things

These really do take terrible photos - 5 year old camera phone quality. Okay for a toddler, but for any kid old enough not to throw a camera, I too would recommend an older adult digital camera.
#19
Could this be an alternative? I am sure this takes terrible photos too..... ;-)
