We know more than a few preschoolers who
seem more adept at technology than their still-trying-to-figure-out-the-VCR parents, but if for no other reason than the
flashy colors, we think more than a few kids might dig Fisher-Price's new Kid-Tough digital camera and "FP3"
player. Both devices are about as simple as they come, and feature certain kid friendly enhancements such as dual
viewfinders on the camera and volume limited headphones so kids don't get that "iPod ear
" too early. The camera
shoots VGA stills and includes 8MB of included memory for 60 shots, and an SD card slot to add more. There's also a
1.3-inch color LCD for previewing photos, and a USB cable for offloading pics. The "FP3" player sounds a bit
, since there's no mention of codec support beyond the kid-safe content at Fisher-Price's new Song
& Story Online Store. We'll hope for at least MP3 support so your kids can start sticking it to the man, and
luckily there is an SD card slot for cheap memory expansion. Both the camera and the music player will sell for $69,
and will be available in June and July respectively.
