We have a Fisher Price one, now two years old. It has been pretty tough. takes standard batteries, which is easy, but not the most environmentally friendly, although battery life is good. A bit heavy, but not a big deal. But the picture quality is terrible. So if you just want something to distract her so he doesn't grab for yours, it may work. But none of the pictures will be worth saving. And if she is serious about the art, you may want to consider another option.
