Digital Camera World Verdict

The Kidamento Model K (Zippy the Sloth) is a kids' camera aimed at budding photographers who want to capture the world around them. Image quality won't rival a 'grown-up' camera, but who cares, the camera is chock full of character, but it performs well in both standard and selfie modes, and the touch screen makes using the different settings a breeze.

The Kidamento Model K is a kids' camera targeted at the 3-9-year-old age range. Its bold character design is a fun entryway into photography for those young snappers and acts as a reminder that taking photographs is a fun thing to do. Kids' cameras aren't about getting the best image and video quality but instead focused on providing an encouraging hand into taking photographs.

MyFirst Camera 3
This camera is similar to the Model K as it is focused solely on photography and video and includes no games or distractions. It performs on a similar level, however does not have a touchscreen, but does have flash.

VTech Kidizoom Duo 5.0
The Kidizoom is the other end of the spectrum and has all the flashing lights, games, and distractions you could ask for. This works as both a camera and as a games device so a vastly different alternative.
