Any recommendations for a camera for a creative 6yo? Ive been looking at children's cameras but photo quality looks awful. Im wondering if a normal basic camera would be better, but something a bit 'tough' to withstand drops

It does depend on your budget, this one is shock proof up to 5ft 9 - however, I have not used that particular camera, but Nikon is a brand I've used and do like.

I have used this, and have since given it to my youngest (and my eldest got the same camera in black) - I had dropped it a couple of times, and I know both DS's did, but I think it came with a wrist strap that I wrapped around my wrist a couple times.

I currently have a Canon ixus 160, which does the job, and again my youngest DS has used it and it's had a couple dings but works well still.
