Picking out the Best Metal Detector for Kids

When determining the best metal detector for your kid, there are some important factors that you may want to keep in mind. Since child treasure hunters might not be that strong yet, it is important to purchase a machine that is lightweight. Even a few ounces makes a difference after a half an hour of prospecting for metal objects.

Another important factor that should be kept in mind is ease of use. Most metal detectors designed with children in mind are made to allow “one-touch treasure hunting”. Simply turn the machine on and start swinging until you hear a beep. Keeping it simple will help kids to enjoy it more and keep them focused longer.

One factor that weighs in on a metal detecting decision is the price range that you are willing to spend. There is no sense buying the most expensive machine possible for a young child who has never treasure hunted before. Keeping a small initial investment lowers the concern of accidental damage as well.

A final important factor you might want to keep in mind is how waterproof the machine is. No matter how hard kids try to keep the detector out of the water, accidents happen. Most of the kids metal detectors will not have waterproof control boxes, but many offer waterproof search coils. Always consider a waterproof option for children, and always be sure to use it in shallow water.

Kids Metal Detector Kit

There is no better way to get a child started out right in the hobby of metal detecting than by purchasing a kit that includes a detector, as well as many needed accessories.
