3 year old using Kid Tough Camera for Bird Watching.
Description:I thought this camera was going to be really, really bad! I once had a tiny thumb drive camera that took grainy fuzzy terrible pictures and I thought this was going to be the same. It is much, much better than that! Now, to be fair, it is not super high quality by any means, so don’t get your hopes up too high. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how clear the photos taken with the Kids Tough Camerawere. Outside is the best use for this camera, as it does not have a flash, so indoor photo’s tend to be grainy, more blurry and darker. I have posted here some of the photo’s I and my 3 year old have taken with it to give you an idea. The camera comes in pink and blue.
Assembly Time: None. You do have to add 4 AAA batteries and buy a cord separately to download the photos.
Value for Money:This item runs between $30 and $40 bucks. My daughter loves it!

Age Appropriateness:The box says age 3-7 years. We got it for my DD for her 3rdbirthday and she took to it like a fish to water and although the age/safety recommendation does not advise it, I probably would have felt okay with her having it earlier. It has dual eye pieces so that you can look through it using both eyes (much easier for kids) or use the view screen.
Durability:It is a plastic construction and seems pretty durable. My DD has already dropped it several times. The lens is set deep into the camera so it is harder to accidentally get finger prints on it.
Educational Value: This is a great way to develop creativity and hand/eye coordination. My DD loves to take pictures the way that we do! She has also carried it along on our hikes to take pictures of wildlife. It is a great way to introduce a birding activity to a child. She feels really important using it, I actually caught her giving it to a friend and then very patiently giving a “mini photo lesson”. It is amazing how quickly kids pick up these things. So far we love it.
