There’s not a cuter sight on the water than seeing your little river-rats-in-training in their own kayak. However, that much cuteness does come at a price, and this little boat sports a hefty one. But don’t let the cost deter you: A weight range of 30 to 80 pounds means your child can use this boat through his or her childhood. As Jackson’s first kid-specific kayak, the Fun 1 is a great way for your budding kayaker to learn how to paddle, roll, or even pull some tricks.
