    Default A little stumped, looking for child sized beek suits

    Ok so I'm an uncle to two VERY inquisitive boys aged 3 and 5 who just love playing out on my 1acre "farm" as they call it. But I'm very hesitant to show them the bees and the workings of the hives, but they keep asking about them.

    So what to do, are there bee suits to suit 3-5 year olds? Because I'd love to have them see how I get honey out of the hives and check on my girls etc. in stead of just standing quietly a few yards away watching the girls coming and going.

    Any tips hints etc on either suits or other things beek related I can do with them would great, thanks all!

    Thomas.

    Blue Sky Bee Supply has suits for small children, although the youngest age they mention is 6 years:

    We actually have ages 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 for the BBWear suits. We've sold a bunch of children's suits in PINK the last few days . . .

    I just found the thread in the equipment forum, so I have more info to go on now too.

    Bluesky, Those sound awesome I'm sending the link to my sister for review.... If she's comfortable with pricing and sizes (most import bit is a good fit after all) then I guess its a go. :-)
