Brought my daughter a Fujifilm XP130, it is a pretty tough camera and she can use it when she is canoeing or scuba diving (she is not old enough to go very deep). She messes around with menu settings and is learning as she grows. It is Lime green and she has teamed it up with a floating bright orange wrist strap and bouncy matching orange case just incase she drops it in the lake.
