The KidiZoom watch is available in 4 colors, perfect for the budding fashion star you know!
The colors offered are WHITE, GREEN, BLUE or PINK.
We were sent the blue and Broxton has had a great time with it. I had planned on taking it on our vacation, but then with him wanting to take the whole house, I was scared he would lose it and so we chose to leave it at home. Looking back, I wished I would have let him take it... Just to get our "vacation" from his eyes!
One of the features that Broxton has LOVED? The camera /video recorder that the SmartWatch comes with! He has taken pictures of all of his toys and our house... and he has made video recordings of all sorts of things... I have to pay attention when he is playing with it and I am on the phone, I don't want all my business out there and who knows who all he would plan on showing his recordings too!
Even with him not being able to read yet, the buttons and images are so kid friendly that he was quickly able to figure all of this out himself! I am not sure the storage, but he has luckily figured out that if he doesn't need or want an image, it is best to go ahead and delete now, versus running out of space. (I also go in and delete things that are just waste too!)
While some kids can be content with things the same for a long time, Broxton is not like that. (Main reason why we didn't do a "themed" book bag / lunchbox this year.) An awesome thing with the VTech watch? You can play one of the 4 games on here -- He has enjoyed the puzzle one a bit.. But you can ALSO download MORE games and different watch displays!He has been mentioning that he wanted a new watch off and on for a bit now... Not sure where it came from, but this was perfect for him. There are a good number of display screens to go behind the clock to make it just the way you want it... Of course, as soon as he saw Aliens, he knew that was what he wanted!
Although the VTech SmartWatch has all the "bells and whistles" of other SmartWatches, it doesn't have a million buttons to learn in order operate it.
We have really had a great time playing with this SmartWatch. It is geared for ages 4-7, but Broxton says that last time his big brother came (almost 14) that he took over it and started playing on it !
I really liked knowing that it is "Splash Proof" too!!!
Check this out : The Kidizoom® Smartwatch is also splash proof, making it perfect for everyday play. (Splash and sweat proof. Do not submerge and not suitable for showering or bathing). More than just a watch, it’s the Kidizoom® Smartwatch.
I will say that I love the color choices, I love the fact that they have different screens to make it more personable for the kid wearing it... I LOVE that it is their own little camera/video recorder... The absolute BEST for me????
RECHARGEABLE BATTERY comes in it. I don't know about you, but most toys seem to come with the rule that it MUST SUCK THE LIFE OUT OF ALL BATTERIES... but not this one... This one? You just plug it up to the USB cord and charge it that way! I have not looked at the other games offered, but I think that 7 might be a bit to "mature' to have this watch... unless they want it more for the camera/video recorder... I figure no need to check out more games until he gets bored with what is already loaded on there.
I see lots of kids getting this SmartWatch during the holidays... At $59.99, I would not go out and buy it just for the sake of getting one, but I do see it being a great gift... Not only is it a fun and cool TOY --- It helps teach and lets their inner photographer come out!!!
