This camera (so far that I have seen by my daughter using it for 1 week) is very kid proof. She has dropped it outside and down our carpeted stairs and there is not one scratch or crack in it.
What I like about this camera: It is very easy for your child to use. There are 4 simple buttons on the back of the camera, a 4x zoom, no flash needed due to enhanced low light performance, and it stores over 1000 pics in the memory of the camera. You can download free software from Fisher Price's site and your child can add really cool special effects to each picture.
What I don't like about this camera: The screen on the back of the camera is so tiny!!! I suppose it is good for little one's but as a parent I squint every time I try to use it or to look at the pictures that my daughter took. It did not come with a USB cord to hook up to the computer. Luckily, I have MANY since most toys come with them now when they require hook up to a computer.
All in all this is an excellent first camera for children ages 3-6 years. You can purchase this camera in Pink or Blue at Walmart for $44.97.
