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!

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.)

Kids Boomerang

Order a Boomerang for my grandson, got 2 in. When I called they said, “our mistake”, just keep the extra. I donated the extra one for Christmas. Great experience. Great service!!!!

6 yr old new boomerang

The product is exactly as you presented it. However, we can't get it to return when we throw it. He is very disappointed.

It is a little big for most 6 year olds. Try again in a couple years. Flaten out the wings and throw with a lot of spin.

This boomerang was beautiful. Very good quality and I love that instructions came with it to show how to throw. It was just $30 and as long as it doesnt break on the 1st throw, I think it was well worth it.

It works great

I've been throwing wooden boomerangs since the 80s and took a chance on this soft foam 'rang as a gift for my friend's 5 year old active child. It's perfect for indoors throwing, and a gentle toss at a slight angle will have it circling back to you. The foam construction keeps furniture from getting dinged. The only downside is that you can only throw it outside when there is no wind, but it's perfect for the rec room.

Glow fling ring

The glow in the dark fling ring glows 10 times brighter and glows longer than any other rang I've seen. Lots of fun to throw on a dark moonless night

Great Product

My boomerang shipment was delivered very fast and I was really happy with it.
Beautiful designs and if you follow the directions and practice, you'll find the boomerang coming back to you in no time.
For now the Pelican is my favorite, but every one I've tried is great.

Beautiful flyers

After tuning, performance was excellent! Thank You!
