I’m looking for a toy that can be used inside or out. Any ideas?
Main points are: ease of use, spare parts availablilty, and cheap batteries and chargers
I need to buy 3... yes, one for each kid, so loooking for something under $50.
Not concerned about camera quality.

So far I’m looking at Syma x11c

Or

Hubsan x4 H107c

At my daughter's birthday party (9yrs) a bunch of the kids flew my Tello around and loved it. The VPS system held the aircraft in place and gave them a chance to figure out how to fly it.
Whatever you choose I'd really recommend that you focus on stability first so flying is a good experience for them.
Best of luck and let us know what you end up going with.

If you want a cheap fun drone just to buzz around the room get the F-36 Furibee. Great training aid as well.
I got a couple of them at about $10 each.
I actually put a FPV micro camera on one just for fun and it is a hoot to fly.

i had the syma, mastered it fast, moved onto a phantom :)
but i bought the syma for my father, he still hasn't gotten the hang of even hovering around in three years.
Getting one with vps or some kind of guidance may be very smart to help your kids achieve control and have fun quicker.
