After totally researching trampolines for my dd 6th bday i have decided against it and am going to get ehr a digital camera so she no longer destroys and deletes stuff from mine. Does anyone have a reomendations? Looked at the vtech and fisher price ones but viewing window looks small and the need batteries - i like idea of rechargeable like mine has. Does anyone have any recomendations for one suitabel for a 6 yr old so robust and easy also it doesnt need a net round it and i dont want her to fall off it and break her arm grin

I was going to post the same thing tonight, although my dd a bit younger than yours, so maybe could get a less sophisticated version. Will keep it bumped for you though.

if she's 6 i'd go for a normal digital camera, we have a kids one for our 3 year old and the picture quality is ok but not great, howver her 5 year old sister has a real camera, she knows she needs to be careful with it and takes fab photos.

We opted for a chunky samsung camera which we got from toysrus for around £50. We found chunkier was better for her.

I got my 4 year old a normal digital camera from eBay. Was around £10 inc post. Old model and a bit chunky but he loves it.
He wouldn't have been happy with a toy one, wanted a proper one.

Hmmmm its the robustness i was concerned about as ds is bound to chuck it down the stairs as its his hobby at the moment hmm. I saw some pixar ones but they dont say how many mega pixels..........

Thanks bbm !

we have the vtech one for dd (5) - it's fab!! It has a double viewing window but dd uses the small screen. She takes some really good pictures and videos. Has a couple of games, is robust - can't fault it!!! I have to put it away when her friends come round as they all fight over it!!

I use normal batteries (4xAA) don't seem to replace them very often but you can use rechargable you just can't mix them.
