Give CKS Main Street a call too. They may have one in stock. If not a Fun 1, they may have another kids boat.

Two other great kid kayak options in case you can't find a Fun1 - the Jackson Shooting Star and the WaveSport Fuse 35. Based on experience with my kids I prefer both of them over the Fun1.

How old is your daughter? I got mine in a Fun 1 at 4 years old. And into a Shooting Star at 9. She loved the Fun 1, learned to roll and hand roll in it. It's perfect for the really little kids. Don't skimp and put her in too big of a boat. Having a proper fitting boat is super important.

And way to go getting your kid into a kayak. It can change her life forever. And you will always have a paddling partner. That's the best!

GOT IT!

Thanks for all the advice. I picked one up at Alpine Quest in Edwards. What a great shop. They were in the middle of a big ski sale and they took time to work with us on kayak questions. Monday was my daughters 3rd birthday and she was sooo pumped to have her own kayak. It will just be a pool/pond toy for a bit, but its a step in the right direction!

She will get tons of use out of this being only 3. Great call to get the smallest boat made. The Fun 1 will offer her the best performance.

If you are in the Denver area check out the Colorado Whitewater Association's Pool sessions on Sundays at Meyers Pool going most of the winter. CW has a kids team. She is a little young for this yet but she will get stoked paddling with the "big" kids in the pool. Kids paddling with other kids is the most fun and she will love the community. You will also meet other kayaking parents to share time on river with.

For later you might also look into the Lyons Kids Kayak Club. Another great resource.
