Tuff Footage

Not sure what the house cat did this morning? Maybe it's because you're lacking a hard-hitting journalist in your family.

If you want to keep up with the goings-ons of the family pets, you'll need to hire a proper videographer (preferably a reporter) with real world experience and an education in all the idiosyncrasies and technicalities of film and camera work.

Or you can just hand your kid an Educational Insights 5290 GeoSafari Tuff Cam, and let them have at it.

With 32 MBs of internal storage a 2GB SD Card, your child can scour the scene for all those "can't miss" moments that your dog and cat won't even realize are funny.

Did your cat chase a reflection into the wall? Capture it at 20 frames per second! Did your dog start barking at a tree? Upload the video of it to your PC or Mac and send it to everyone in the family.

Knowing all about your animals' activities is a tough task, so put your child on the beat, and get the news you need when you need it.
