Best first detector for a child?

Post by HazzaB »

Hi All! I'm looking for a very basic, but decent quality model suitable for my 7 year old to try his hand at detecting, but don't really want to spend more than about £70 ideally.
Can anyone suggest anything suitable?
I liked the look of the Joan Allen Coin Shooter Junior (nice simple analogue display) but it's out of stock. Other options I've been looking at are one on Amazon for £59 by 'Meterk' (Chinese?) or perhaps the 'National Geographic' Junior one, also on Amazon.
Appreciate most people on here are a bit more pro and have more serious kit, but does anyone have any knowledge of any of these?
