Kidizoom camera provides for safe toddler entertainment


I often have to make the choice (read million times a day) between letting my toddler satisfy his curiosity on how my gizmos can contribute to his growing need to know everything, and extending their shelf life by that one more day by keeping them out of his reach. Taking the latter option almost always means that I get to savor my toys only when he is at school, or is blissfully asleep. Both of which happen to be the shortest events of the day.

Being the hassled, deprived mother that I sound like, it is always relieving to see the growth of the kiddies' gadget market. The latest in the little world of digital cameras is the Kidizoom series for pre-schoolers from VTech. Take your pick from two models - the Kidizoom Plus which sports a 2x digital zoom, a movie mode (with sound), 256 MB of memory, an optical viewfinder plus a preview screen that works with a D-pad and an SD memory slot, or the 0.3-megapixel Kidizoom which has all of the former, except for the viewfinder.

Both cameras include a photo editor (Mac/Windows), a crude auto flash, U.S.B. and AV cables to connect to your computer or TV, and run on four AA batteries. The Kidizoom Plus is priced at $60, and the basic Kidizoom $20 cheaper at $40. Wait for them to hit the stores next month.
