How to Pick out a Kid's Boomerang

If you're choosing a boomerang for a young one, read below for some tips or check out our video!

  • Young children from 5-10 often do not have enough arm strength to be able to properly throw a boomerang and we recommend foam or rounded corner plastic boomerangs for kids of that age for additional safety.
  • Older kids ages 11-15 can throw heavier plastic boomerangs and light wooden ones. Since these fly further than the foam ones, you'll want to make sure to take them to a park or field to practice throwing.
  • In general, the more wings a boomerang has (3 or 4 wings is common), the shorter the radius of the flight, but also the more likely it will come back to you.
  • Every purchase comes with our training booklet, but a small child still will need some guidance to get a boomerang to work safely. As boomerangs make a big flight, adult supervision is needed, especially if there are multiple children present.

Awesome Boomerang!

This boomerang has a wide turn which I like. Looks of air time. You have to tune, but once it's tuned, enjoy!!

Solid boom

Solid boom a little on the thick/heavier side but fun to throw. My boom actually snapped in half the second day on a chain link fence post.

a boomerang for children

This is a great boomerang for my eleven year old son to throw because it will return to approximately where he is standing, which he couldn't manage with the other boomerang I bought. At the same time it's made of foam and doesn't feel like it's going to remain in good shape for very long. We've just started using it and it already has creases and appears to be losing its optimal shape, but it is surprisingly easy for a child to get it to return.

Love it!!!

I can't wait to learn how to 'rang'!, with my new boomerang! It's beauty is awesome! Thanks again for a great product!!! What a great hobby!!👍🤘👍🤘👍

Gave this boomerang a few quick throws as it's going on a prize table. It flies beautifully. An easy 30 yards in medium wind for us. A young thrower will be very lucky to get this one.
