With Black Friday edging ever closer, the discounts are starting to pour in. With huge markdowns on everything from dehumidifiers to air fryers, vacuum cleaners to Barbie dolls, our dedicated team of bargain hunters are keeping an eye out for big discounts on the products Mumsnetters really rate. 

As it falls in November, using Black Friday to nab big savings on your kids’ Christmas presents is a no-brainer, and we’ve seen brilliant deals on everything you need for Christmas Eve boxes, stocking fillers as well as Mumsnetter-recommended Christmas presents for the whole family. 

If you’re looking for some internet-free, kid-friendly tech, you can’t go far wrong with one of the cameras from VTech’s Kidizoom range. Designed with kids in mind, they’ve got tons of fun features, with the ability to edit images and videos, while nurturing their creativity. In fact, Mumsnet's editors have named it our best kids camera 2023.

The best news is, all three of the Kidizoom cameras are heavily marked down in Amazon’s Black Friday sale. There are three options to choose from, all with great discounts. Which Kidizoom will you go for?


Ours is a few years old, has been dropped a lot. Can upload photos, zoom, use funny filters, record voice clips. We liked it because it seemed really sturdy and it has lived up to that.

Kidizoom studio camera is good for stop motion and playing around with special effects. Certainly something she could do on a tabletop eg with Lego figures.

DS loves printing off the photos he takes of people as gifts. There's also a pretty cool comic strip feature. Because it prints in black and white the refill paper is cheap.

When is Black Friday 2023?

Black Friday 2023 is officially 24 November, but as we've seen in recent years, retailers tend to kick off their sales a few days or even weeks beforehand so it's well worth keeping an eye out for bargains throughout the whole month. During the sales event, MNHQ's deal hunters will be beavering away to source savings on products that we know Mumsnetters love and recommend.
