VTech Kidizoom Action Cam

VTech Kidizoom Action Cam Review!

I don't normally write about specific products, but today I'm making an exception for the VTech Kidizoom Action Camera.  

The kids love it! (And so does Daddy)

We got inspired to start recording moments in our lives when our family friend, Noah, started doing vlogs documenting his travels on YouTube. After watching one of his awesome videos, Sydney said she wanted to visit all those places and record stuff too.  Woohoo!

The kids both have the YouTube kids app on their iPads too, and they love watching the videos other kids are making with their dolls so we started looking into kids 'gopros' for Christmas this year.  

We found the Kidizoom on Amazon, and after reading the specs and all the awesome reviews we decided that Gammy would buy one for each of the kids at around $33 per camera.  I'll be honest, I was pretty excited for them to get the camera too because Noah has inspired me to start recording and I thought they would be really cool for our trip to Disney World in January.  

The very first night they had them the kids brought their cameras into the bath to shoot some underwater footage.  The Kidizoom can go up to 6 feet underwater, which is the perfect depth for our kids.  They made some cool videos with the waterproof case on the cameras! 

Then we took them to Dollywood a couple days later for a test run on the smaller kids rides.  We were careful to only use them when they were allowed.  Their compact design worked great!  

What's good about the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam

  • Underwater up to 6 ft
  • thumbs-up
    Easy to use for kids
  • The waterproof case also protects the camera for accidental drops
  • thumbs-up
    Camera lens can easily flip to face forwards or backwards when waterproof case isn't on
  • thumbs-up
    Camera is small and compact, measures in at 1 X 2.3 X 2.2 inches making it very versatile 

What's not so good about the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam

  • When the waterproof case is on the lens can't be flipped, whichever way you put the camera in the case is the way the lens will face.  Not a big deal because the waterproof case easily snaps on and off if you wanna flip the lens
  • Is the video and image quality as good as a cellphone or iPad?  Of course not, but this is a camera for kids so it's no big deal  

We've only had the cameras for about a week so we haven't even had a chance to try all the filter options and games, but even without trying those the VTech Kidizoom camera is highly recommended for families who want to record their kids lives without using super expensive cellphones or iPads.  

Our rating on the VTech Digizoom Action Cam for Kids:  

We'll post Disney World footage next month! 

In the meantime, here's some footage by Noah, the one who inspired us. Thanks, Noah!
