Innovative New Collection of VTech Kidi Tech Electronics Announced
Chicago – VTech, a global leader in children's electronics and a pioneer in the children's wearable technology category, today announced its 2021 Kidi Tech collection. VTech continues to be at the forefront of innovation with its new collection, offering children the on-trend technology features they want in kid-friendly, age-appropriate devices.
"Our success lies in taking cues from adult tech trends and developing secure devices that support the way kids play," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Our Kidi Tech line features the coolest, age-appropriate tech toys."
Following the success of its KidiZoom® Smartwatch series, the best-selling smartwatch for kids for the past three years*, VTech is introducing the KidiZoom® Smartwatch DX3 with a new sleek, durable design, two cameras for selfies, photos and videos and an LED that doubles as a flash and flashlight. Adults can share the photos and videos at their discretion by uploading them to a computer using the included micro-USB cable. The KidiZoom Smartwatch DX3 is a kid-friendly smartwatch that doesn't compromise on innovative features like the ability to play two-player games and send preset messages to their friends just by scanning a code on their friend's DX3 (sold separately). The watch also comes pre-loaded with tons of apps including 60+ new customizable daily activity reminders from "OK to wake" to "Time for bed" to help keep things on schedule at home and on the go, as well as eight games, motion-tracking activities and a voice recorder.
The KidiZoom® PrintCam™ lets kids create instant black and white printouts of photos taken with this exciting new digital camera. Using cost-effective thermal paper, kids can also print games, and design and print their own greeting cards, play money, comic strips and more. There is a flip-up lens for selfies and three games to play too. Photos and videos can also be uploaded via the included USB cable.
KidiBuzz™ 3 is a kid-friendly smart device with the adult tech features kids are looking for, offering 3D screen effects, a new magnifying lens for up-close photos and a new KidiCom Chat™ messaging app with video sharing. KidiCom Chat lets kids connect with parent-approved contacts to send texts, photos and video clips over Wi-Fi with other KidiBuzz™ devices and iPhone or Android smartphones. KidiBuzz 3 also lets kids add live face filters and frames to photos and video clips, play 40+ interactive learning games that teach math, science and spelling, and explore kid-friendly websites. In addition, they can load and play their favorite music and movies for on-the-go entertainment. With parent controls to set daily time limits, KidiBuzz 3 keeps children engaged and parents at ease.
These innovative new Kidi Tech electronics, for ages 4 and up, will be available this fall. For more information about VTech toys, visit www.vtechkids.com.
