Fisher-Price knows its customers have a tendency to drop and fling things, and they designed this camera with durability in mind. It's covered on all sides with a rubberized grip that can withstand a lot of shock if -- or when -- your child drops it. It's also waterproof.

The camera itself is pretty bare bones, but unlike other models, its shutter button is located on the front of the device, which is helpful for kids' small digits. It also has a two-eye viewfinder, which helps younger children master the art of taking pictures.

As an additional safety feature, this camera hides its battery compartment and memory card slot behind a screwed-in plate. Yes, that means it's sometimes a pain to open to change the batteries (especially if your tiny photographer takes a lot of pics), but at least you can be sure that your child won't be able to open the compartment himself and try to swallow its contents.
