Children's Binoculars: A Selection for Young Explorers in New Zealand
Binoculars are a great way for kids to get a closer look at the world around them. We have a wide range of suitable binoculars for children from leading brands including Bushnell, Kowa, Carson, Nikon, Olympus, Tasco and Vortex. Binoculars can be used to look at a whole range of things of interest including birds, animals, bugs, boats, planes, trains, landscapes and sports games. They’re ideal for bringing the world up close for your kids and they bring many hours of enjoyment in kids of all ages. After all, which kid doesn’t want to be an explorer with their very own binoculars?
Our collection of kids binoculars includes models in a range of price brackets so you’re sure to find something to suit your budget. All of the binoculars in our collection of binoculars for kids have been specifically chosen as they’re either kids toy binoculars, or their size and configuration would be a good fit for kids.
Carson and Toysmith make a range of toy binoculars that are specifically designed for kids. They are designed especially to fit the small faces and hands of young children. The optics in these models are entry level and will likely need upgrading as kids grow up, but they offer a perfect introduction to using binoculars and don’t cost too much.
All of the other binoculars in this collection are technically adult binoculars, but we’ve chosen them as they have more compact dimensions than many other adult binoculars, which makes them a great option for kids of 7 and above. Kids of this age still need smaller sized binoculars but want better optical quality. Binoculars with a better optical quality are more enjoyable for people of all ages to use as they produce bright, clearer images, so if you are buying for a child of this age and above then we’d suggest spending that little bit more on one of the higher end models in our range.
