VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch.
The smartest watch for kids.
Let’s face it. Our kids are growing up in the digital age and they are learning to become tech savvy at an early age. While Mimi can navigate both the Apple iOS and Android systems with a breeze, there is still content out there that I can’t control and much more technicalities that can be implicating if those little fingers hit the wrong things.
I am happy to learn that VTech has amazing “techie” toys for little ones and kids of all ages. Toys that can satiate their love of technology all while having age-appropriate fun.
After all, what is a watch if you can’t tell time with it? I love that the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch can help your child take time or learn to if they haven’t yet. It has a digital and an analog option and it has helped me in teaching Mimi how to tell time. Slowly but surely, we are making head way!
Mimi has taken her watch everywhere she goes. I don’t know how many times that I have found tons of selfies, pictures and vids through the eyes of a 4 year-old on my phone. Now, she is able to do all that wherever she goes and capture the world the way she sees it. On top of that, the games keep her busy in the car or when I am running errands. She is learning and using hand-eye coordination and response time and critical and spatial thinking and much more!

Lights, Camera, Action!
The camera and video recorder are the features that Mimi likes the most. She has had a lot of fun taking pictures and making her own little vlogs. The camera works really well and you can compare it to older model phone pictures but, still clear.
Since it is a small watch, that means small storage space. If your little artiste makes long videos or takes a ton of pictures, the watch will become full quickly. Easy solution? Just connect it to your PC and transfer those treasures and clear them up so that they can keep making memories!
The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch is durable, simply put. For a very rambunctious pre-schooler that lacks delicate finesse, this watch can keep up with her. I love how it comes in Pink, Blue, White and Green. Perfect for both boys and girls! A tip that I can give new VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch users is to let the watch go into sleep mode, if you shut it down in other ways, your clock will reset and you will have to set the time again. Simple.
The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch retails for $59.99 and makes for a great toy, especially with back to school–it will keep them on their toes and learning at home too. Age recommendation is 4+ and you can find it on Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Best Buy, Sears and Future Shop!
