Will the real thing ruin his imagination?

I want to get my 2 1/2 year old a digital camera for Christmas. But he has an old one that doesn't work and he's always taking pretend pictures of things like dinosaurs and baby ducks.

  • paparazziI think now he'll just be more excited. This will open a more creative door for him. I say go for it.

  • My son had one that didn't work and would take pretend pictures all the time. I bought him a new one that works and he still uses the broken one all the time.

  • My two and a half year old wants a camera too. Fisher-Price has a nice one with a double viewfinder and looks like it can withstand drops and falls. You can see it on the FP website if you're interested. I agree with Caelums Mama: you might have a budding photographer on your hands!
