Kids Metal Detectors

Encourage Exploration with a Kids Metal Detector

Kids Metal Detectors are engaging and exciting toys for any youngster with a zest for adventure, encouraging them to explore and have hours of fun searching for buried treasure. When it comes to toys that teach kids about the world, these are great for giving them an appreciation for hidden mysteries a little closer to home.

Far from being cheap toys, our kids metal detectors are affordable but effective exploration tools - made accessible and safe for young treasure hunters! 

Here's a top tip: you can hide "treasures" around the garden yourself for your little one to discover, ensuring they leave playtime happy with their hoard!

Become a Treasure Hunter with a Junior Metal Detector

If you ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, chances are you'll hear "adventurer!" more than once. From a young age, children have an ingrained desire for knowledge discovery, and playing at being a treasure hunter is a healthy way of feeding this need for information.

Kids metal detectors have come a long way from being cheap, ineffective imitations of the real thing. The junior metal detectors of today are excellently designed, capable of picking up metal in a surprisingly effective manner.

Are Metal Detectors Safe for Kids?

At BrightMinds, all our toys are selected according to not only their educational value and fun factor but their safety for young hands as well. The junior detectors we stock are selected with this in mind, ensuring that when you buy with us, your purchase will be safe for your special boy or girl.

Please note: We recommend our metal detectors for ages 8+ in order for your child to get the most out of it unassisted.

Looking for Something Extra Special? Try the Metal Detecting Robot!

KidzLabs have devised an ingenious, "build-it-yourself" metal detector robot for kids. It's an excellent way of adding an extra layer of challenge for children who love to build things! 

The robot is remote controlled and emits a "beep" when it detects metal, just like a traditional detector. All in all, it's a novel gift to inspire your child with.
