I still can’t believe that summer is over. I am actually sad that my kids had to go back to school and that I feel like we didn’t do enough bonding and fun stuff over the summer. The house is super quiet during the day now however and I seem to be able to get more work done but I miss them. I was trying to figure out how we could keep the fun of summer going once the kids got back to school and it just so happens that VTech wanted to help us keep the fun going by sending us some really cool gadgets to check out.
First up is the KidZoom Action Cam 180. This thing is the “bomb” as my son put it. He has been strapping that thing to everything just to get the perfect video shots. He had it on the handle bars on his bike and even tried to figure out how he could attach it to his helmet. He is super excited to see if he can video tape some video game playing later this week as he is really wanting to get on YouTube with his quick wit and fast game-playing hands. You can also play games, take selfies and so much more.
This camera is exceptionally made and built to last. They definitely had kids in mind with this product and I am sure it is going to stand up to whatever my son throws at it. As with all of our favourite VTech toys, the quality is top-notch. Did I mention it came with a waterproof case? Yeah, this thing is definitely made for kids to take just about anywhere.

(MSRP $59.99)
Next up is one gadget I can’t help but feel is such a great fit for my 4-year-old and my almost 9-year-old. The KidiZoom Smartwatch DX2 has to be the coolest watch for kids on the market. Not only does it have the ability to allow kids to play games and have fun, it is also teaching both of my boys how to tell time, set alarms and be responsible for their electronic devices. They have been playing with them daily, although I did have to stop them both from wearing them to school, and they put them back on when they get home. It’s the kids’ version of our adult smart watches and they both love them!
Also made with quality and rough and tough kids play in mind, I am sure these watches will have their batteries changed long before we have to replace the actual watch. Rechargeable batteries are included which makes this momma very happy because changing batteries every time one dies, is a never-ending problem in my house. Now they just plug them in and go when they are done.
The perfect tech for kids, Kidizoom® Smartwatch DX2 by VTech® lets them take pictures, videos, play games, tell time and more! Featuring a new sleek and stylish design, this durable smartwatch includes 55 digital and analog customizable watch faces to help kids learn to tell time. This smartwatch features two cameras that allow your child to capture everything from action video to selfies that can be customized in the Silly Me app and made into new watch faces.
Includes an assortment of new games including Monster Detector, which uses the camera and augmented reality to help kids find and capture monsters in the real world. Kids can also use the watch’s motion sensor for active play challenges or to track steps. Using the included Micro-USB cable, upload photos and videos as well as recharge the battery. The Kidizoom® Smartwatch DX2 is agreat multifunction watch like Mom & Dad’s, designed just for kids! (MSRP $69.99)
