It is usually the parents' job to take photographs and carefully track each stage of their child’s development. After all, memories last longer when the moment is saved using a digital camera. However, it could be a great idea to see the memories of your child through your child's point of view.
They might not be the best at framing a photograph, but nothing will quite store their memories as arming them with their own digital camera and letting them loose on the world.
Vtech have created the perfect blend of fun and practicality with their Kidizoom Plus camera. This 2.0 megapixel offering also includes a 2x zoom for your youngster to play with and it is capable of storing up to 500 photos before you need to backup the shots.
The camera includes games for their entertainment during family holidays, with editing effects that may teach the little one to be the fashion editor of the future. Coming with everything your child needs to connect their photos to a computer, this can be had for around the £50 mark.
Kid-Tough digital camera
Fisher Price know full well how destructive kids can be towards toys so they have designed the Kid-Tough with exactly that in mind. It can be dropped and stepped on – at least on occasion – and has the nice feature of having two viewfinders: an easy way for young children to see through the lens like a binocular.
It has dual grips for easier control and a snazzy 4x digital zoom for the professional kids out there. At the end, connect it to your laptop and see what they have snapped.
Fujifilm INSTAX MINI
This quirkily shaped, sleek coloured offering brings quality photography to the little ones. Photographs are printed immediately, allowing kids to tweak their technique on the go. It is lightweight and durable – ideal for children learning the ways of photography.
Of course, once you’ve got your child their own camera you’ll need to think about their photography skills. Thankfully, there are plenty of children’s photography workshops available so you needn’t worry about overexposed holiday snaps!
