This was a birthday gift for our granddaughter, who's grown out of her Kiddizoom and wanted a "good" camera. This is definitely a "good" camera - it's better than mine! It has everything she thinks she wants (especially the colour - she loves purple), and a lot more for when she starts experimenting with quality pictures and video.
I'd recommend a camera like this for any youngster (or adult) who has a serious wish to take decent pictures, not just for blasting into Facebook or taking pictures down Daddy's ear'ole.
The only downside, as reported by many other reviewers, is the lack of a memory card in the box to make it instantly usable.
