Rated 1 out of 5Â by CinciTina What a disappointment
This camera looked so cute in the box, and with the Discovery Channel brand, I figured I was getting a great camera/toy for my daughter. After using it 2 times, the shutter button jammed. When I tried to upload the pictures to my computer, the computer said the files were not supported, so I couldn't get any of the pictures my daughter took. On top of that, after it had been OFF for a couple of days, it drained the very expensive electronics batteries I had put in it, so I can't even delete the pictures off the drive. This has been such a disappointment. I'll be taking it back and letting the store know how horrible it is.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by LeanneS1 Great for my three year old and so far durable
The camera is a little heavy and bulky for my petite 3 year old's hands but it's durable and easy to use (she can already turn it on and take pictures - just needs to figure out the review and delete). There is also a zoom but you have to click the delete button while in camera mode so I can see that she might end up accidentally deleting pictures (one more button wouldn't have hurt in the design).
But a great value for what I paid and so far the 1 year old that keeps stealing if from his sister hasn't been able to break it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Wowallthenamesaretaken Durable & Fun but not much memory
My son thought it was awesome to have his own camera (especially one that takes video!) I love that it is weighted so that if you drop it, it is almost sure to land on the cushioned sides & get no damage. The downside - it has almost no memory!! My son excitedly took 3 short (less than 30sec each) videos & 4 pictures on Christmas, & it was full. There doesn't seem to be a way to add more either, via a card or anything. So it is great if you are close to the computer so you can upload instantly, or if you intend on deleting almost everything as soon as your kid takes it... but don't plan on taking it on a hike or other excursion for your kid to commemorate a lot.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by SassyGirl84 Great Camera for Your Little One
I bought this camera for my niece who is 5 years old for Christmas and she loves it. The only thing I didn't like about the camera is how difficult it was to insert the batteries. You have to unscrew a back cover to insert the batteries but when I tried to put everything back together, it was difficult. The battery cover wouldn't line back up. It may have gotten damaged during shipping, I don't know. I also wouldn't pay the full price for this camera--not worth that price. I would purchase it if it goes on sale.
