DS would love a camera. I don't want to get him a Kiddizoom type one as dd had one and the quality of the prints is poor. What do you think - a disposable one? Or a cheaper, proper camera (from ebay maybe)?

We bought ds a real one at 4 or 5 and it is still going strong and he takes great photos. He had a kids one first but it was a waste of space.

Babs -that's what I did for dd too! She prefers a chunkier camera as they're asier to hold than the current ultra-thin ones. Hmm. Might do the same for ds... smile

Yeah I'd go for a real digital one rather than disposable as in my experience they take odd pictures of things like
The carpet
Their feet
Nothingness/black screen
People's heads chopped off
Up the nose shot

I'm still refusing to even think about Christmas till December

DSSs (aged 6 and 3) got digital cameras last year. I got them from Jessops for £50 each about a week before Christmas (when they suddenly drop their prices). Buy small SD cards and ask for the cases (the cheap ones) for free and look prepared to walk away if you're turned down.
