The Baby First (ベビーファースト) is a Japanese camera, probably taking 3×4cm exposures on 127 film, about which almost nothing is known. It is only mentioned in the official list of set prices compiled in October 1940 and published in January 1941, under the names "Baby First I" (¥28) and "Baby First II" (¥44). Its name certainly indicates that it was made by Kuribayashi and distributed by Minagawa Shōten.
