VTech Kidizoom Action Cam Brings Latest Tech Trend to Kids
New York – VTech (www.vtechkids.com), a world leader in age-appropriate and developmental stage-based electronic learning products for children, today announced the introduction of the multi-function Kidizoom® Action Cam, bringing parents' technology to a new generation of active kids. Following the huge success of the Kidizoom® Smartwatch, one of the hottest tech toys of 2014, the Kidizoom Action Cam allows kids to play and capture their adventures with videos and photos on-the-go. The Kidizoom Action Cam features a robust, durable design and comes complete with mounts for attaching to a bike, skateboard or scooter, plus a waterproof case, all at an affordable price, making it an exceptional alternative to an expensive adult action camera. The Kidizoom Action Cam will be on display at the 2015 North American International Toy Fair®.
"Last year, VTech displayed our propensity for innovation with the successful Kidizoom Smartwatch, leading the way in the burgeoning children's wearable technology category," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "The new Kidizoom Action Cam proves VTech has again harnessed the hot tech trend for adults and adapted it for children in a fun, easy-to-use, durable way. Best of all, it comes jam-packed with all the accessories kids need at a remarkable price, making it appealing to mom and dad, too."
The Action Cam is a great first video and photo camera for kids and is durable enough to handle drops and tumbles. It can go anywhere kids go, and do anything kids do with two included mounts so they can attach it to their bike, skateboard and more, making it perfect for interactive play and capturing life's adventures. It also comes with a waterproof case so they can take videos and pictures up to 6' underwater – perfect for budding snorkelers and splashing fun. The Action Cam features a 1.4" color LCD screen and can take stop-motion videos and time-lapse photos in addition to regular videos and photos. Children can also explore their creativity with fun effects, frames and photo filters. It's easy to upload their photos and videos to a computer using the included micro USB cable so parents can choose to share them with family and friends. For even more fun, they can also play three exciting games.

 VTech takes child safety seriously, which is why all our toys undergo intense testing and analysis to adhere to all of the industry's safety standards. The Kidizoom Action Cam is age-appropriate and designed to let active children safely capture their adventures with videos and photos and is not intended for use while performing "stunts" or "tricks." VTech does not condone risky behavior. Though it can be used to capture footage while in motion, the camera and mount should only be adjusted while stationary. The mounts designed for use with our Kidizoom Action Cam in no way compromise the structure they are attached to and especially do not compromise helmet integrity. VTech takes great pride in the quality of its award-winning products and providing safe, high quality toys for children remains the priority.
