The Canon Snappy LX is a nice and simple 35mm point-and-shoot from the early 90s. Here's Canon's description:

Fully automatic compact camera with a large viewfinder, built-in flash, and a single focal length lens. It was the first single focal length camera to have a red-eye reduction feature. The two-shot self-timer also lets you take two consecutive shots with a single self-timer operation.

This camera requires two AA batteries (not included).

Condition notes
The camera was tested with batteries and film installed and all functions are working correctly (the film was not developed however). The camera is in good aesthetic condition (see photos). The original case is included.
