Welcome to the forum unsure! What a nice gift for your grandson! If it was me buying I think I would go with the Kodak. Refurbished cameras scare me!

G'day unsure

Depending upon th age of the child ... both cameras are well made, no issues there
Kodak menus are simpler to follow - often using stars rather than options - easy for a youngster / beginner
Nikon menus may be more comrehensive, thus needing a few years more experience with choosing things

Hope this helps a bit
Regards, Phil
