KF Toy Review - V-Tech Toys

This month for our KF Toy Review we are checking out two of V-Tech Toys latest releases.

The Kidizoom Duo 5.0 Camera and the Secret Safe Diary Selfie Music landed on our doorstep and our official toy testers haven't put them down since!

The Kidizoom Duo 5.0 Camera

Kids love to mimic what we adults do everyday. That includes being behind the camera taking the photos themselves instead of always being in the photos. The thing is, there is no way my 6 year old is getting his hands on my expensive camera so that he can dart around the backyard trying to capture our dogs best side!

Thanks to V-Tech Toys I was able to hand him his own camera, the Kidizoom DUO 5.0, and let him go wild. He's been having so much fun getting creative with pictures and feeling so grown up.

Review: The Kidizoom DUO 5.0 is a great size for kids. It is bigger which helps them to hold it steady and makes it harder to loose! The games are fun and the photo frames/stamps/funny faces/silly mirrors are hilarious and fun too. The photo quality is good and having a flash really helps teach the kids how to take good photos in different light. The Kidizoom DUO 5.0 has different filter options which also helps the kids get creative with their photos. It's the perfect camera for the little budding photographer in your family.

Here is a bit more about the Kidizoom DUO 5.0 dual lens camera - The front and rear lenses can be swapped at the touch of a button, making it simple to take photos, videos, and selfies! Add fun effects, stamps and frames to your photos and videos, or use the auto-portrait feature to take photos automatically. Record your voice and apply funny effects too! Other features include: 4x digital zoom, built-in auto flash, fun learning games, voice changing effects, wacky photo shaker, photo editor, cool built-in games and more. All of this is easily seen on the large 2.4” colour LCD screen. You can also transfer files to your PC to edit and enhance your photos and videos.

The Kidizoom DUO 5.0 Camera is suitable for children 3-9 Years, and available in blue and pink now from good toy stores and online retailers, and from Big W in June for a limited time.

Secret Safe Diary Selfie Music

Are you on the look out for a gift for your tweenage special someone? It's a tricky age as they are moving on from toys and yet aren't quite old enough for their own phone, as much as they believe they are!

When we received the V-Tech Secret Safe Diary Selfie Music I just knew that Bailee was going to love it. She honestly hasn't put it down! I find her in her room recording videos, taking selfies, keeping her digital pets alive and getting creative with the photos she's taken.

Review: Kids and technology go hand in hand these days and finding the right technology for their age is tricky. The Secret Safe Diary Selfie Music is a great way to start the process of kids getting used to things like tablets and phones. We loved the face recognition unlock feature, this works really well. The creative camera photo and video filters are so much fun. The games are great and the virtual pet satisfies the little 'mummy' that is our Bailee. We love the new addition of the headphone port making it even better to travel with. Bailee has been loving her diary as it gives her the independence that, at the grand old age of 9, she so desperately wants!

Protect your thoughts and dreams with the Secret Safe Diary Selfie Music. Make a photo journal, write diary entries or record messages and keep them safe. Clever facial recognition software unlocks the journal only when it recognises your face, and you can add a number password for extra security. Featuring front and rear cameras, you can take selfies and pictures with your friends. Also includes games, photo and video filters, music and utilities that give you a variety of activities to play. Create new looks for yourself and your friends, care for a virtual pet, decorate photos and videos, play learning games and more. You're the key to this diary!

Secret Safe Diary Selfie Music is suitable for children 6-11 years, and available now from good toy stores and online retailers, and from Big W in June for a limited time.
