Camera for a kid
Mar 16, 2013

I got my five year old niece one of those toy cameras a few years ago, and she loves it. She uses it all the time. Problem is, it takes awful photos. I am thinking of graduating her to a 'real' camera.

Is there anything out there that is cheap enough to try on a small child? It really doesn't have to be that great. Any picture quality will be improvement over the toy one. Something uncomplicated (with few buttons) and rugged. This might be a crazy idea for a kid this young, but I'll gladly take suggestions.
