what does he dislike about the toy cams? He understands it's a toy and "not like yours?" He doesn't like the picture quality (we are soon to see him with his own account, pixel-peeping here at DPReview)? Something else?


If it were entirely up to him, he would be happy with a digital camera that has a nice rear screen where he can see the shots he took.  Other than that, I don't think he'd ask for anything else.  I would teach him a bit about whatever camera we get for him and would upload his pictures.  I think he'd really enjoy that.  So we aren't looking for anything other than a very basic camera for him, but we would prefer avoiding repeated purchases due to premature wear and tear.  So, we either buy him a cheap digicam and risk damage or pay more and buy him a rugged camera where the risk of breakage is reduced.
