    You can pick up varous Olympus auto focus cameras in the mju series also referred to the Stylus series. They are plentiful and run under $20 sometimes as low as $5. They are clam shell design & auto focus with a built in flash that can be turned off. Batteries readily available. I picked two up recently for $15 total. (The mju second in the series is a classic with a f2.8.)

    For anyone 5-85 years old looking for a film point and shoot, I suggest the Olympus Stylus Epic. A very good f/2.8 35mm lens. Weather proof and a built in flash. It seems hard to go wrong with it.

    I love my Olympus Stylus Epic. I carry it with me most all the time. It take very clear pictures and is easy to use.

    At that age I used a Kodak Baby Brownie, which was of course a point and shoot. Any camera will do.

    If and when she gets to the more inquisitive point where she might start to give exposure some attention, you might try getting her a Canonet QL17 or, like I gave my daughter, a Zeiss Ikon Contiva. Both have rudimentary light meters and require exposure to be set. My daughter loves and cares for her Contiva and takes everywhere we go when I take my camera, even sometimes when I leave mine behind. It has come in handy more than once.
    Thank you.
