    Dadant has Sheriff style jackets, and pant suits available.

    I purchased two of these suits for my 4 and 6 year old daughters.

    Try The Bee Works in Orillia Ontario. Bought one for my 9 year old son last summer.

    I bought veils, and kids boiler suits. The suits come in a variety of colours - which the kids love - and are a fraction of the price of a bee suit or jacket. The veils will last through lots of years of growth. I did have to sew up pockets in the boiler suits.

    Looking for a suit for my 2 year old, maybe a veil and hat would work?
    This summer will be the start of his career in beekeeping and he even gets his own hive.
    Right now he runs around the yard pointing at our beehives saying "Bee, Bee".
    Gotta love it!
    Can't wait till he gets old enough to start helping lift all those heavy supers!!

    I purchased one of the Jawadis kids bee suits- very pleased. This is a quality product, and it was in my hands in 3-4 days by priority mail. Comes in a nice plastic case-bag and the leather gloves are VERY nice- I'm a bit envious, since I just use a cheap pair of rubber dishwashing gloves.

    I got the kids-Large and it fits my average-size 12 year old son very well, and he should get at least a year or two more out of it- will also work for my 10 year old (although a medium would fit him perfectly) and should work for most average 13 year olds.

    My two year old likes to draw it out. "Beeeeesssss, Beeeeeessss!"

    I bought one from blue sky (see advertisement above on the right) for my five year old daughter. It is good quality and will last here for several years. Than the boy get it.
