This is an awesome toy plain and simple. It will keep your young child occupied and entertained for many many months to come. I feel for the price it is an excellent value.

However please be advised this is not an awesome camera. In fact as a camera it is way below average. Think cell phone quality photos and you won't be far off the mark. However a young child does not care about photo quality. They care about fun and usability and Fisher Price has delivered this in spades. Now on to the review:

This camera is colorful, chunky and easy for a child to hold. I bought this for my 4 year old son who was always asking to use my digital SLR. My choice was a cheap megapixel camera designed for adults that would deliver reasonable pictures but was still complex for a child to use or this toy camera that was easy to use but delivered sub-par photos. I knew my son would get more fun out of being able to take pics like daddy than reviewing them later for quality on a computer so the choice was easy.

This camera is very easy to use and very well designed. The viewfinder is used with both eyes so your child does not have to close one eye (which is in fact very hard to do for a 4 year old believe it or not!). There is one red button on top to press to take the photo. No zoom or focusing to worry about it so it shoots quickly. In low light the flash works automatically. The flash recharges in about 2-3 seconds. The resulting picture is promptly displayed on a small lcd screen on the back of the camera (just like dad's!). The resolution of this lcd is sub-par but kids will not care about this.

Also on the back are the power on button and two buttons to scroll thru the saved pics (again just like dad's).

I purchased the new kid-tough camera for my daughter, who is 6 years old. In the past she's relied on disposable point-and-shoot cameras for taking on school field trips. The only problem: we'd develop the film and find out half the shots were bad. Now with the new FP digital camera, she can snap to her hearts content (that is if you add the optional SD memory card....as the camera will only take about 60 shots before maxing out the internal memory). The software that is bundled with the camera is windows PC compatible. I use a Mac, and photos downloaded fine from the USB interface. Overall, the quality of the camera is good. The double "viewfinder" style eyepiece makes it easy for young kids to focus on their subject without squinting one eye. The controls are very easy to use, whether your child is old enough to read or not. It takes 72 dpi pics, which is fine for printing 4x6 photos. And because it's digital, you can choose which pics to print...a savings from developing the whole roll of 35mm film. Two criticisms: The $70 price tag does seem a bit high. It would be a better bargain if priced closer to $50. It uses 4 AA batteries, rather than a single rechargeable. (Although I am using rechargeable AAs). I'm finding that changing the batteries is a real pain because I have to keep reaching for the phillips-head screwdriver to take off the child-proof cover. Nice if you have a really young child, but a hassle for the parents of older kids.

My husband and I are both avid shutterbugs, and my almost 3 year old son really wanted a camera to take his own photos. We had a few gift cards that we had not used, so we invested in this camera. He was very excited to get it and uses it often, he especially likes to take it on Photo Safaris with us. It is also a hit in the neighborhood among all the kids who take photos like crazy with it.

Pros: Seems quite durable. Buttons are easy to use for him, while the batteries and sd card (optional) are easy to keep out of his reach. Photos download easily and cable is included in the kit. The optional SD card (I got a cheapie 512meg) adds storage for over 1000 extra pictures.

Cons: Does go through batteries quickly- but we use rechargables anyway for most things. Photo quality is TERRIBLE- and I just don't mean terrible because we are photographers ourselves, I mean TERRIBLE in general. The photos are most frequently blurry and dark- even with flash or bright sunlight. Also, I don't think they would even print well at 4x6 but we have not tried. We will have to upgrade him to a cheap digital point and shoot once he is able to treat this camera nicely. (I will upload a few sample shots to customer photos.) Another con is the discard photo button is right there on the back- great for them to erase the photo they just took without realizing it.It also makes a rather annoying noise when any button is pushed- which encourages the button pushing to go on and on and on.

OVerall, the camera performs as expected, just wish the photo quality was better, but again, this is a camera for my preschooler so I should not expect too many megapixels I guess.

I purchased 2 of these cameras for Christmas back in August. Because I was concerned with the photo quality after reading past reviews, I decided to open one to check it out. I found the photos to be a bit hazy, but I decided that I wanted to keep the cameras anyway. Since the 90 day store return policy was nearing, I decided to check them both out again. I took the same pictures with each camera and found that one camera's photos were clearer then the other. I couldn't believe it!! I exchanged the camera that produced the hazy photos, for a new one and the photos came out much clearer with the new camera. I am definitely keeping these cameras, as I think they photo quality is just fine. Trust me, I very much dislike blurry photos!
