Not sure if you saw my post which is the last post on page 2 of this thread , but there is a good Childrens machine out made by Nokta
Might be something to consider for your daughter sometime :thumbsup:
Thanks BA , the nokta looks good for kids also one of the quest machines looks good as well , think is the x5? Or q5 or something like that! comes with 2 lower stems in different lengths. The problem is having some land that has plenty of targets to keep a child interested to justify spending on something specifically for her. At the moment she’s fairly happy using the pin pointer and occasionally using the headphones whilst I swing the machine which will be easier with a wireless phones set up

I did a fair bit of looking in to childrens detectors before last Christmas (a lady I know wanted to get 2 for her grandchildren). After reading a lot of reviews / watching lots of videos of different machines IMHO the Nokta came out by as far the best childs detector. There is the Mini Hoard (mentioned earlier) and the Midi Hoard which is for slightly older children (and looked the better of the two if undecided).

You what? You mean to say you've sought opinions outside of this magnificent well of knowledge & experience? Shame on you! :lol:

Glad you're arriving at a decision and know you'll get on well with whatever machine you finally plump for :thumbsup:

Yep, best to sleep on it and make the right choice than rushing in. :thumbsup:
