They're not tweens anymore, so you can't give them a $20 digital camera
that has a Hannah Montana logo. For their first serious digital camera, try the
GE A1235. It has 12.2 megapixels, a super-easy interface with quick auto-focus,
and it makes fun chime noises when you scroll through the menu options. It's
available in hot colors like red and pink, but it's a grown-up camera with a
reasonable price tag — if they lose it at school or accidentally drop it in a
fountain at the mall, it's not as huge a loss as other cams could be.
