  • For me, I would think it would be too young, but my son is only 14 months so who knows what I'll say in a few years. I wouldn't get him a very expensive one though.

  • My 5 yo borrows mine but I wouldn't spend the money to get him his own. Is your child responsible enough to take care of something like that? Age isn't as big a deal as maturity and responsibility. If they can take care of it, not lose or break it, and you feel they should have one, go for it.

  • I think it's too young. Would he be able to work it?

  • I would say no. My kids at that age were not responsible enough.

  • I think it depends on the child. If you think they can handle it without breaking it then get it for them. I am buying my daughter a cheap but decent camera for Christmas. She loves to take pictures and is always careful with my old camera. She is only 4.
