We are Zoe and Roland, wife and husband duo, and the creators of Kidamento.
In 2019 we joined the proud world of parenthood, and with our parent initiation, we were snapping photos of our new baby as every parent is want to do. We were overcome with joy seeing the world through our child’s eyes and in this jubilation an idea sparked.
What if we let our little one capture his own memories?
We took to the stores, but we couldn’t find any suitable camera products that met our expectations. Most of the toy cameras available were not kid-friendly; they were bulky, heavy, took extremely poor quality pictures, and were not budget-friendly.
Memories fade, but thanks to the technology of digital pictures and videos, these captured moments can last forever. It is with this thought that we combined the words kid and memento, a way to remember a memory, to create Kidamento, the name of our company.
We knew that with our engineering and design expertise we could create a toy camera for kids. One that would not only fit the needs of parents but that also could capture the creativity of each child. Our idea was to provide affordable digital cameras for children ages 3-10, that are not only cute but can take photos and videos, and don’t include video games.
Children’s brains develop at a fast pace. We want to nurture their brains by allowing them to explore, observe, and analyze the world around them. Our cameras allow for less screen time in exchange for more critical and creative thought. When children combine our cameras with play, they enter through a gateway to another world. A world with less screen time and more imagination, less time wasted and more time valued, and ultimately, more memories. It’s the unique way they interact with their siblings, the goofy storytelling they create with their stuffies; it’s how they connect to their world.
If what you are looking for is a way to engage your children’s imagination and creativity in a manner that lets them be in the moment and truly appreciate the world around them, then look no further.
We are proud to be Kidamento and be a part of nurturing your kids’ growth.
