Head-2-Head Review: Kids Cameras Compared
Top Reviews>>

Years ago kids enjoyed pushing around toy vacuum cleaners because that’s what they saw their parents pushing around. Today’s kids have branched out; mommy and daddy are taking photos with digital cameras and now kids want to join in the fun. What better way is there to foster their interest than to provide them with their very own camera?


Finding the right camera for your child is tricky. The camera shouldn’t be so advanced that it will confuse your child nor should it be so simple that they will be bored in an hour. It also shouldn’t be so fragile that it breaks, nor so sturdy that they can hardly push the buttons.


You should determine what the purpose of the camera is to you and your child. If you want a toy to keep the kid busy, you will likely want a different camera than one that is actually capable of taking decent photos. Read on to find the best digital camera for your kid and your budget.
