How to Choose a Great Boomerang for Kids!

There are lots of different types of boomerangs for kids, from soft foam boomerangs for small children, to small, plastic boomerangs which are easy to return. For older kids there are some more advanced models which also return well without needing a lot of arm strength. Well here are some great tips to help you choose!

1) Probably the first step is to decide who it’s for. Is it for a small child or a teenager? How strong is their throwing arm? Are they right handed or left handed?

If it’s for a child 5-10 years old you will probably want to get a light boomerang made from a soft plastic or foam. You want it to be safe and easy to throw. A good boomerang for that age would be generally smaller, lighter and softer than other options. Some options for very small children include this foam boomerang called the “funfly” which is even great for indoor use

2) A good outdoor use boomerang for small children often will use more than 2 wings to make it easier to get a full return. The more wings, the easier it is to return.

3) There are some plastic models which also are very nice for small children, as long as they are real boomerangs and not just boomerang shaped.

4) For children from 10 to 18 you may want to choose a more advanced model like these. The Blue Angel is hand crafted in Australia and just the right size for kids 10-13. The Bumblebee is another great choice with the 4 airfoils making it extremely easy to return. One of my personal favorites is the Pink Flamingo, which works great and is a lot of fun. The Ranier is an easy to throw boomerang for kids 15-17 or so. These are all easy returning boomerangs.

5) What else should you look for? Well check out the airfoils of the wings. If they look like airplane wings you are probably moving in the right direction. There are lots of “souvenir” boomerangs with great looking art shaped in a V but are they a real boomerang or a stick? You need to look at the airfoils on the wings. Real boomerang wings are like airplane wings. Look closely at what constitutes a good airfoil.

6) A big part of throwing boomerangs is learning how to. It really helps to have a both good video instructions and a good, illustrated how to booklet.

7) See you around!

A Hummingbird Product Review:

A great product review and How to Throw Boomerangs tutorial was posted on youtube for our Hummingbird Jarrah Boomerang by an independent source called “ReviewOutdoorGear”. The boomerang was obviously nicked up with a lot of use but overall was reviewed well with some insight. Check it out here:

Broke in half while using the first time

I’m sure this would have been a great boomerang if we had more time to throw it….. unfortunately it broke in half while throwing it the first time…. Gonna stick to the non wood ones moving forward as they seem to be more fore giving

Room A Rang Boomerang

Fun toy

I enjoy sitting on my couch and throwing this. It doesn't go too far, and lands on my lap


Nice, short range and accurate!

My Bees

As a bee keeper (small bees) it is only fitting that I have a bee boomerang (large bee).

Patience tuning

Hello: this boomerang seems to favor anheadral tuning. Very satisfied with it’s flight! Thank You!

Great beginner boomerang

Nice looking boomerang, and after 15 minutes or so, my nine-year-old son can catch it fairly often. Lots of fun!

Awesome boomerang

Beautiful boomerang that flies great

Consistent Flyer

This is a great boomerang. A consistent flyer and returner in a variety of conditions. Good flight pattern.

Great Rang

This is a great rang with a surprising large flying pattern. I lost Mi e so time to get another. I have about thirty rangs and this is top five. It’s a big flyer.

This boomerang is therapeutic

I have lived a life of dramatic highs and lows (as perhaps we all have). In such circumstances it it occasionally necessary to leave your house and do something active. But you are alone (as we all are). Perhaps you grew up without a father and catch wasn't an option. You could feel sorry for yourself and live a life of self-pity, or become the father to yourself that you never had. Boomerangs are catch solitaire. This very model of a boomerang has gotten me through numerous internal challenges. They also make great gifts for those you meet who are struggling and need an activity that doesn't require alcohol. (Weed helps). My personal record is 5 catches in a row. Thank you Colorado boomerang company for doing the Lord's work (I'm an atheist. There is no God and we will all eventually die and be forgotten.)
