I’m considering buying my 8yo DD a polaroid camera for Christmas. Does anyone have any recommendations? Not quite sure what I’m looking for as never had one before!

I'm going to lurk as I love Polaroid cameras - but the last my son got (maybe 7 or 8 years ago) just didn't work like my old one did.

Feel bad for the OP who has attracted a number of lurkers but had no advice grin

I have an 8 year old girl and I have ordered her this Fuji Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera- Blush Pink from smyths toy store, I did however over films and accessory pack to go with it from amazon and I got a scrap book too, it's her big suprise from santa.

Instax mini 9 - my dd got one for her birthday and they are amazing! Buy lots of film packs and get something for her to use to display the pics! One of those little mini photo washing lines they clip on to or maybe a scrapbook to paste them in?

Thanks for the suggestions. The Intex one looks great and I love the accessory pack too. I think I’m sold!

My teens have had the instax for about 8 years, still going strong. It’s a sturdy little camera (film is expensive though)

Here are the films I was talking about too, they are super cute!! I heard good reviews about the insta max.

I have an Instax for myself and absolutely love it! There is such a wonderful nostalgia about waiting for the image to develop, and friends are v.envious!
