Best Metal Detectors For Kids - Buying guide..
On this page you we will try to advice you about the best kids metal detectors in our opinion..
It is very important to buy the right metal detector for your child if the metal detecting hobby is to have their attention in the longer run..
There is an overwhelming range of cheap metal detectors on the market today, but you have to be very careful not to buy one that is too cheap and of to poor quality. Often metal detectors that come with out a specific model name, and just with some kind of a number should be the ones where you think twice..
The price difference is most of the times so little that it really should not matter that much giving an extra penny or two to get the slightly better quality metal detector, that will give your child a way better experience..

The youngest children below age 7-8

OPur preferred models for the youngest kids comes from either Bounty Hunter or Garrett. Some of the Bounty Hunter models are specific made for kids use, and therefore they are very easy to operate and the shaft will be adjustable down to children's size. The Garret entry model Ace 150 is also very easy to operate (turn on and go) and is the metal detector which we started out with. If you buy the Garrett you will probably need to shorten the shaft or the smallest kids might have a little tough time swinging it...

> Take a look at the
Bounty Hunter Junior (very suitable) or the Garrett Ace 150 (need to shorten the shaft)
