My Review of the Fisher Price Digital Camera for Kids

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive November 2006: My Review of the Fisher Price Digital Camera for Kids
By Kate on Thursday, November 23, 2006 - 10:02 pm:

We've had this for a week now, and it is truly horrrrible. It is very cute and very kid friendly. Extremely easy to operate and it makes cute little noises (altho too loud....we need to cover the speaker hole with tape). The pictures, however, are MORE than disappointing. We weren't expecting MUCH, but these are SO bad. They are all blurry and grainy and washed out. You can barely see them on the back of the camera, and it's not because the LCD window is too small, it's not. It's because the pic is SO bad you can't see what on earth you're looking at. We held out hope that once downloaded they'd be better. Hardly.

My advice is to buy the least expensive REAL digital camera you can find, that is user friendly. My DD is six so she could have had a better camera but we feared she would have trouble operating it. She also really wanted it to be 'pretty' and real cameras aren't generally pink or purple!! I wish we could return it. As I said, we weren't expecting much, but based on the Amazon reviews I was actually expecting better.

I posted this because so many of you said you were buying this for you kids for Christmas. Seriously, if they can handle a real one, get them that. After all the effort they put in to taking pics, the quality of them will really disappoint them. I've seen Samsung and Polaroid digital cameras for as low as $60 and $70 and the Fisher Price one is $55-60 anyway!

That's a bummer. It sure is cute! Crappy quality wouldn't be any fun.

That's what we're doing. We found a real digital for about 60 dollars that we are getting Rylee. I read the dissappointments on-line about the cameras picture quality.
