Cool camera for little kids


The Kid-Tough Video Camera sells for $60 and can record up to 15 minutes of video that can be played back on the TV or computer. The camcorder has a 1.4" TFT LCD screen a SD card slot for more recording and it runs on four AA batteries.

Let me just say first that this is a toy. Don't buy the Kid-Tough Video Camera expecting to get super quality video, you will be disappointed. The Kid-Tough Video Camera is plenty of resolution for little ones to film you or the pets or friends and they will have a blast doing it.

In today's realm of HD cameras adults may think the resolution is not good. Honestly with the expectations I have of crystal clear video and more we I think the video doesn’t look great. I am not saying the video quality is horrible, it's video quality a webcam on your computer would give you. You will notice grain in low light and fast action won't be the smoothest, but kids will love it.

You can hand this camera to your little one and have them run around filming all they want with no fear that the camera will meet a smashing end. The internal memory of the camera will record 15 minutes of video before it's full. You can pop the thing open and put in a SD card for more recording. With the low resolution a small 1GB memory card will record tons of vide with this little camera.

The little LCD on the camera lets your kids see what they are recording and the little LCD can be used to view what they recorded. My daughter though it was hilarious to record her and her friends dancing and making silly faces. They filled up the little 1GB card quickly. She is six and was able to easily learn the controls for playing video, rewind, fast forward and to delete video when she needed more room.

You can take the SD card out and transfer the video to your computer to share on YouTube or archive on CD for saving. You will need a USB cable to get video off the internal memory of the Kid-Tough Video Camera. That USB cable isn't included. This is a great camera for little shutter bugs from 3-7 years old and it's an eye opener for parents to see what their kids and their friends get up to in front of a camera. My daughter dropped this thing a few times acting silly and it survived with nary a scratch.



  • Very rugged
  • Easy to use
  • SD card slot


  • Almost as expensive as a real video camera


The Kid-Tough Video Camera might be a bit costly, but you won't worry each time your kid plays with it that the ting will break. This is a fantastic gift for little ones that like to make their own movies.
