I can very, very heartily recommend the L'Espion from Digital Dream. I'll post the link and specs in a minute. It's about £39 here in in the UK (what's that? $20?) and it's SO much fun it's sick.
It's also absolutely tiny, for that SpyKids thing.
The images you get are wonderful. It's not a Leica, but you get a sort of.. quality.
I went to a party in the summer in the countryside, a sort of 'bring an artistic contribution' type-thing. A couple took along a pair of L'Espions and surreptitiously photographed everything. When it was dark, while everyone was sitting around and telling stories and singing songs and whatnot, they edited together an iPhoto slideshow of photos taken that day on a PowerBook and then projected the whole day's events against the wall of the house.

I've bought one. I had a load of images up, but Apple ate my site and then my trial .mac account ran out. But if you want to see the perfect camera for your son or daughter and iPhoto, this is surely it.
