I would advise against it, you get more control with paid phone apps and the novelty will wear off quickly. She might like a cute old and small film camera though, that's how my girlfriend when I was in higschool got into photography, she enjoyed the involvement in the process. She also liked the look of her old camera more than clunky dslrs.

I haven't heard back from her after my texting not to buy this camera and the suggestions about getting an app or two for her phone. So, I've marked this one resolved. Thanks all of you for your help.

The first camera I actually owned was an Instamatic. Instax fill a similar niche. It is apparently quite a successful product.

If she wants to learn photography she will find the limits of this technology and want to explore an SLR. Otherwise her curiosity will be satisfied..
