I recommend this over the Fujifilm camera itself. Comes out and develops fast. She has decorated her room with all her pictures. But the flash for this is decent, so I like that. Wish I head read the description better.

Polaroid First Impressions

"Awesome gift set!"

One of the best purchases I've ever made! I am so happy to capture memories in this form. I personally don't have any complaints. This Beginners Instant Camera is SO easy to use. But it’s nice and thick and great quality.

  • Polaroid Originals 9007 OneStep 2 VF Instant Camera (Mint) with Film Bundles (Color 600)
  • BUNDLE INCLUDES: Polaroid Originals OneStep 2 Viewfinder i-Type Camera (Mint Edition) and Standard Color Film for 600 and i-Type Cameras
  • TOP QUALITY: Simple in use, the one-step camera captures a unique image every time - which is the essence of Polaroid photography. And with the built-in strobe flash and high-quality 2' to infinity lens, you can be sure every shot is simply amazing. Choose from the range of film and frames offered in the i-Type and 600 Film varieties for instant mood and a dose of personality
  • BATTERY FREE: Every camera needs film to go with it. Polaroid Originals i-Type cameras have their own i-Type film, battery-free, unlike the standard film for vintage cameras (meaning it’s easier on the wallet) and optimized for the Polaroid OneStep 2 camera
  • FAMILIAR: It might look familiar, but this film is all new. It uses Polaroid's most advanced chemistry to provide richer colors, tones, and contrasts than any Polaroid film before it
  • EASE IN CLEANING: Your camera has a set of rollers inside the film door. Each photo passes through these rollers as it’s made, so it’s important to make sure that they stay clean. If the rollers get visibly dirty then gently wipe them down with a soft, damp cloth
