Bought this camera for my daughter's fourth birthday somewhat apprehensively after reading the reviews. Sadly she was very unwell on her birthday but when she opened her present she was absolutely delighted and spent the rest of the day clicking away happily and adding devil horns to photos of her baby brother. She managed to work out how to use most of the functions by herself - it is very child friendly to use. As for the quality of the photos, I thought they were really quite good considering some of the awful reviews and for a child's camera I wouldn't be disappointed at all. This has been a great purchase and I would thoroughly recommend it. Perhaps the one downside is that it doesn't come with a case but it is very robustly built. Go on, buy it, you won't regret it and it is hilarious looking at what your little one has taken photos of - it gives you a real insight into how their little minds work.
