Purchasing any gift item for your child is a mind-numbing task. You can never be sure whether they will like what you buy for them or not. So, when you want to buy a digital camera for your little kids, then there are lots of things, which you must know, which will help you (hopefully!) to get right camera for your child.
One of most important things for children is that digital camera should be one of latest available in market. If it has been heavily advertised and people are talking about it, then it is even better. This gives children a sense of pride and also allows them to ‘show-off’ their possession to their friends.
Another factor, which is critical for children, is that camera must look good. This is very, very important to them. It does not matter whether it has a big screen or small screen, whether it is 2 mega pixel or 1.5 mega pixel – camera should have a smart shape, come in flashy colors or it can also look cute or funky. But, camera should not look ‘boring’ or very ‘serious’ in nature. However good functions might be, if camera does not look good, it is most likely that your choice will get rejected.
The size is also important. Most children will definitely prefer a digital camera that is small and compact in size. The weight and size should be such that they are able to easily put camera in their pocket or hang it by a string. Large and bulky models, even if they have better features are not advisable for children.
