Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Camera

Our friends at Grand Avenue Baby were at the Extra Emmy Lounge last night. In addition to these super cute Munchkin bling’d binkys (ah, the old days of when the demand was such we had binkys in every room in the house, in every car, in every bag, in every pocket – yup, they were that important), they had these, Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Cameras. We were initially concerned it was going to be too young, but: Very cool and a gigantic hit with the Chairman of the Board, who at this very moment is saying “Monty. Monty. Monty,” as he tries to get the reluctant fur-face to sit for him.

Here’s a real digital camera that’s tough enough–and easy enough–for kids to use. What a perfect way for kids to get creative by taking, viewing and even printing their own digital pictures!
