D3300 fell 1/2" onto a soft carpet and lens broke... Need replacement recommendation

I'm still in shock. Was sitting in a chair browsing through photos. 4 y.o. daughter started climbing on my knees, I set the camera on a sofa next to me, carefully. Stupid camera rolled for no reason at all and fell on the lens bending them. Like one second everything is ok and next you have a camera rolling like possessed and you have no camera. Why did this position break from falling a few inches on a very soft thickly padded carpet????? Plastic POS!

To make things worse I'm on Maui right now. Might as well be in Afghanistan. This was my only camera. eBay won't ship because not my home address. Amazon prime will take a week or two. Nothing sold locally of course.

So that's it for nice photos I guess.

I'm looking for replacement, similar 3.5-5.6 DX lens... But is there anything better for similar money?  I'm a casual photographer don't want to spend a lot.
