My niece started asking for her own camera after everyone else in the family had one of their own, so I checked out Fisher Price's digital camera for toddlers. The appearance of the camera itself is very colorful and bulky, but it exceeded my expectations in value and quality.
The digital camera is only 1.3 megapixels, but how much does a toddler really need. Most of what they want to capture is right in front of their faces anyway. As for durability, this camera is tops, I would be pleased to have some of this toughness on my camera when I go hiking or backpacking. the camera was dropped, banged around while she carried it is her bag, and even kicked under the sofa once.
I like that the camera has two eye viewers so my niece was not always peering through one or squinting. Instead she could just hold it up to her face and shoot. The buttons are very large and easy for toddlers to use.
The only con I felt the camera had was the small screen that didn't quite give you an accurate view of the shot captured so I would wait to delete till you see the pictures on the computer. That said, it is very easy to upload your images and delete, save or crop pictures. My four year old niece did not have a problem with any of the editing options. All her shots had suprisingly good resolution and came out better than several of mine do on my expensive digital camera.
I totally recommend the FIsher Price Digital Camera for young kids. They will have fun capturing images of the world around them and you will have fun saving what they snap.
