The VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch Giveaway

The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech.

The VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch

With so many kid's electronics on the market today, it can be hard to figure out which ones are the best for your child. I won't lie, I have gone through my fair share of products, even with doing extensive research. There is one brand though that has never let me down - VTech. Our InnoTab is constantly being fought over between my two children ages 3 & 5. We recently had the chance to test out one of VTech's brand new products - The VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch.

VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch

Why we are loving the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch:
  • My son can easily take photos,
  • Add photo effects like frames, filters and distortions.
  • Record his own videos,
  • He can play 1 of the 4 built-in games or I can download more for him in VTech's Learning Lodge
  • The 1.4" color touch screen is perfect for little fingers and is so easy to use.
  • There are no complicated directions or anything to read - perfect for non-readers.
  • Telling time is a hard skill for children to learn and the Kidizoom makes it easy with 50 digital & analog clock displays.
  • There are no batteries to buy or replace - recharges right through a USB port.
  • There's also an alarm clock and stop watch.
  • The voice recorder is fun to use to create 5 different fun effects.
  • While you cannot submerge the watch in a pool or bath, it is splash and sweat proof making it perfect for your child to wear everyday.
  • Like other V-Tech products I have, the Kidizoom is very durable for the wear and tear that kids put on their toys and electronic devices.
VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch 

  Our thoughts on the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch: While the watch is recommended for ages 4+, my 3 year old who is advanced for her age had a lot of trouble figuring it out. My son, at the age of 5, I think is the perfect age to start to use the watch. It's really opened up a world of creativity for him. I've noticed that the camera is thought out to where he doesn't need to lift and steady his arms at the same time of pressing any buttons. The camera is quite clear too. I've noticed that since using the Kidizoom, my son enjoys playing more imaginative games with his toys again. Believe it or not, this electronic device has gotten him off of other electronic devices and back to the basics of playing with cars, action heroes and more. He has been making up little videos of him playing with them or of the toys playing.

  VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch 

Some criticism on the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch:
The battery takes about 3 hours to fully charge, which in the world of a child is a very long time. But, I have found when it is fully charged, the Kidizoom Smartwatch is able to be played with for a day or more. Also, the storage space is very minimal. If you know children and cameras, they just click away without a thought or censor. So, the storage does fill up very fast and my son becomes frustrated. I have to plug it in, download the pictures (which is a very easy process) and free up some space for him.

The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch retails for $59.99 and comes in 4 fun kid-friendly colors - blue, pink, white and green. It will make a great gift for a birthday or for Christmas!


One lucky reader will win a VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch in their choice of color ($59.99 MSRP). To enter, follow the steps in the entry form below! Giveaway is open to US readers (sorry no PO Boxes), 18+, one entry per household. Ends 9/5 at 11:59pm EST. Good luck!

Mercy Rule DVD Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a sample of the product below for review purposes only.

Kirk Cameron's self-stated goal with the movie Mercy Rule was "something fun and inspiring, something that builds our faith in God and our strength as a family." With realistic crises, believable character development, and [for the most part] a good use of humor to balance the tension, he succeeded in meeting most of these goals -- but not the most important one.

This is certainly a "baseball adventure" [again, Cameron's words] which the whole family can enjoy. There are several young actors present, and none of them disrupt the story with amateurish performances. Mercy Rule never resorts to crude humor, and does not ignore the difficulty of trying to live a principled life in a corrupt world. The relationships between family members demonstrate how honesty and loyalty provide much needed stability in times of trouble.

And if you're really serious about learning as a family from the movie, it includes a study guide and "family discussion questions." Cameron says that in Mercy Rule the viewer can see the Miller family "learn life's lessons of mercy, patience, sacrifice, legacy, and trusting God." This movie should be praised for the difficult, rare, and commendable achievement of demonstrating and celebrating all but the last of those lessons.

No clear link is seen between strength as a family and faith in God. This family had "a form of godliness" but where was the evidence that it knew of "the power thereof"? The commitment to being a "no quit family" and to living honorably could easily be attributed to their respect for the wisdom of "Pops," the deceased patriarch who founded the family business, not to any reliance on the Bible for guidance or on God for strength and protection.

Still, if you're looking for a good family film, here it is. It's something you and your children could watch together or you could allow your children to watch alone knowing it is safe an wholesome.

You can purchase your own copy of Mercy Rule HERE! (Search for Mercy Rule DVD).
