The best kids cameras include a wide variety of models, some of which are basically toys, while others are beginner-level models that are really easy to use.
One thing they have in common is that they need to be fun and easy to use.
Just click the link above to read my full list of the best kids cameras, many of which have a cool look, such as the Pentax R1500 (pictured here) that has changeable skins.
Keep in mind that if your child has some photography experience, most of the cameras listed in my new best kids cameras article aren't going to be powerful enough to meet their needs. If you want more of an intermediate or advanced model, check out my digital camera gift guide instead.
