Photoshop for Little Ones

I recently wrote about the cool Vtech V-Motion, which is awesome, but have you seen the cool KidiArt Studio?  This, to me, is like photoshop for the kiddos.  This is a toy that can really bring out the creativity in your little one for sure!

It hooks up to your TV or PC so that your child can do simple drawings or even create they’re own family tree with pictures.  It has a super cool digital camera that will take a picture of the child sitting at the desk and if using with a pc, your little one can send creations in email or even create ecards or even print!   Your child can take a picture and then literally drag and drop little clip-art to place on the picture.  Even my 12yr old was intrigued!!

I’m wowed at the features this little Vtech toy has and how far kids toys have come today.  Having a fun, interactive toy that brings out creativity??? What more can you ask for.  It incorporates the following:

  • Drawing
  • Creative Play
  • Puzzle Logic
  • Hand Eye Coordination
  • Photography

The only drawback of the KidiArt Studio I found is that it uses batteries.  I would much prefer a wall adapter instead to keep the cost down.  Other than that, this is a must have toy.  Give your child something that they can learn from.  Let their creative juices flow.  You know it’s fun if we ALL tried it here in the house;)

This is appropriate for children ages  4-7.  While my little guy was a bit to young for it, he instantly picked up how to take the pictures and how to drag a piece of clip art over onto the picture.  Genius?  Maybe, but I bet it has something to do with how easy it is to understand the features.

Price for this creative toy?  A cool $79.99.  Not bad when you consider all that it is capable of doing. This has already won awards by the way…..that should tell you something.

    Ok – my kids need this! I’m in photoshop all the time but I’m not so willing to give up my computer. This could be the baby step to scrap booking I’ve been looking for!
