Disney launches digital cameras for kids


It's time to humor the kids -- and why not do it in style, by allowing them to have some adventures with their own digital camera? Don’t worry, you don’t have to look too far – based on the fact that normal cameras are too complex for kids to use and too expensive for parents to buy, Disney has officially launched its Disney Pix line of digital cameras, camcorders and peripherals made especially for kids and teens. The products have been designed by Disney in collaboration with the manufacturer, Digital Blue, maker of digital devices and software for the youth market.

Ranging in price from $20 to $80, each digital camera is colorful and the outer design is based on a particular theme – your child can choose among Disney Chrome, High School Musical, Pirates of the Caribbean, Cars, Little Mermaid, Disney Princess and Tinker Bell themes. And included in the package is Disney’s proprietary photo editing software, which they can use to customize their photos to include Disney characters, stamps, frames etc. In addition to this, there is also special consideration for the fairer sex – one of the products in this bouquet is a digital camcorder called Disney Princess Digital Movie Maker specially for your princess.

To give you an idea about the specs, the most “high-end” camera in this range, the Disney Pix Max, will cost you $79.99 and has a 3 Mega Pixel digital resolution, a 1.5” color LCD screen, a 4X digital zoom, expandable memory card slot, built-in auto flash and TV out. Plus a camera strap, the editing software CD-ROM and a USB cord. What more could a child want ?

What I find interesting about this idea is that it has a double advantage – not only can parents afford to get economically priced, fully functional digital cameras for their kids, but kids won’t have to steal their parents' more expensive cameras.

Though the press release says that the products are now available at mass retailers nationwide, I haven’t found any online dealers as yet. Anyway, go check it out and make your kids happy.
