I bought this last time it came around for my two year old daughter. She loves it! She runs around with it saying "cheese" and taking pictures of us and the dogs. I always get a kick out of uploading her pictures and seeing the world through her eyes.

Yeah, this doesn't belong on kids.

A few people left some feedback with 3.5 star avg

Take it from a guy who is a hardcore LEGO collector (hence the name Minifig) guys, the camera really isn't worth the money. The quality is kind of crappy, Sure, it'd work as a kids camera, but it's not exactly as durable as you'd like to think a "kids camera" should be. I dropped my first one while trying it out and it promptly broke. The second one's quality was kind of poor.

They're a 3 out of 5 stars, maybe 2.5 out of 5.

Not exactly worth it, but if you're a collector of LEGO items like me, they're a nice thing to have for your collection.

I don't know if Digital Blue has the 8 MP manual on their website, but from this http://www.digiblue.com/lego-user-guides/ I found the guide for the 3 MP camera:

As I said in a book I wrong a while back, if you want to ruin a child's interest in photography, give them a camera made for "kids." Usually 5-10 year old technology and a poor lens.

I see tons of used 3 - 5 MP Kodaks (fixed focus, SD card) for under five dollars at Goodwill, etc. Tap up the battery compartment and the SD card door and let then use that!

We bought this before a recent trip to Legoland. Kept it in my backback and pulled it out as a surprise for my 5 year old. He *LOVED* it! It saved us from buying more junk in the stores. He loved being able to take his own pictures and we were stopped many times and asked if it was real and where we got it. As long as he could be still, he got some decent shots.
