US based company VTech has beaten hundreds of products to win a Gold Star Toy Award from Scholastic Parent & Child magazine.
Each product was reviewed by the editorial team and tested out with parents and children in their homes. The toys and games receiving recognition were selected based on the following criteria: innovative and cool; magnetic and engaging for the child; mind-expanding or educational; and an excellent value to the consumer.
The company’s press release says “The Kidizoom 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. Available in yellow/black and purple. (Ages 4 years and up, MSRP: $59.99)”. That doesn’t include the necessary SD card but it is impressive how prices for action cams have come down, to make a product of this sort available for the child cyclist market.
