Five digital cameras for kids

legocamI’m not a big fan of children having a never-ending supply of gadgets. Do young kids really need a mobile phone or a flatscreen TV in their rooms?

Digital cameras, like the Lego digital camera on the right (Boots, £39.99), are different though. They promote curiosity, provide permanent mementoes and offer hours of fun.

This chunky Fisher Price Camera, (£49.99, Boots) on the right is easy for little hands to grasp, and has a 1.5-inch LED screen so your child can view the images they’ve taken.

The 64MB of Flash Memory means it can store up to 500 photos.



The Vtech Kidizoom Multipedia Digital Camera, is a multi-tasking little gadget. Not only does it takes photos, but it also records videos and is packed full of games to play through a TV or on the move.

You can buy it from Amazon for £61.40

    My six, nearly seven, year old has the Lego camera and absolutely loves it. It’s really easy to use and given that he’s obsessed with Lego (mostly Star Wars lego) it’s just perfect. I think it’s good for him to exercise his creativity moving around the place with a camera rather than sitting on a laptop playing games which he usually does. Picture quality isn’t bad but we do have some bizarre pictures including extreme close-ups of a terrified dog and lots of shots of his Mum and Dad taken upwards which are very unflattering.
