Happy with the purchase

Pros: well built and sturdy, good price
Cons: i'm too big for it
" I had to buy two. My 5 yr old loves it, so I got one for her little sister, when she's old enough.
Price was right and these will last my daughters well into their teenage years.

Well built and lots of fun

Pros: great quality and design, good quality paddle included
Cons: 130 lb person would take on a bit of water
" We also bought two of these for our boys (8 and 10) and they love them. Easy to paddle, easy to move around and store -- we've had a great time introducing our guys to paddling. They could spend hours out on the lakes near our home. "

And they're gone! Kayaking that is.

Pros: light weight, easy to use stable, affordable, comes with the paddle
Cons: no carry point i use the seat strap., likely to get wet
" It's just not the same..... having our boys sit in a canoe and "attempt" to help paddle.
sometimes we just want some freedom to do what we want to do.
We bought one of these little kayaks and it was a hit. No issues with stability and they barely need to paddle to make it move.
I did notice that the front slaps a bit in mild chop but that would be because of the tunnel style of the hull. It's this same hull that gives it the stability and straight line tracking so I guess it isn't a bad trade off.
I'm on my way in to hopefully buy a second one so we can all go out together.

Perfect for kids!

Pros: easy for kids to use, very stable, climb-on rear deck, easy to transport
" I bought 2 of these for my 6 & 8 year old boys for use in lakes . . . they love them! Super stable, they even use them as stand up paddleboards. I think they will be able to use them for a long time. Weight limit is 130lb, but I was able to enjoy them too @ 150lbs. Great purchase, highly recommend! "

Great for kids

Pros: weight, size, pricepoint, fun, durability
Cons: valve on front was lost 1st trip out, backrest could be made of better material
" We picked up 2 of these for our kids for our last week camping and they loved them. Our 6y old used it for Kayaking and got the hang of it right away and easily maneuvered it around the lake. Our 4y old who loves surfing on his body-board, simply removed the back rest and loved surfing on it (Jump away when falling off is what we told him, and he did, so as to not bonk any body parts).
They were easy to haul down to the lake, the paddles were perfectly sized and the removable backrests were a bonus.
The backrest is only made out of a thick foam, which will most likely not last that long and the front valve/water cap went missing on the 1st trip out, but other then that, they are great. "

love my new kayak

" This Kayak might not be suitable for a 180 lb man but it is perfect for a 135 lb woman.
I take it out on the lake and have a blast on it. It's a great toy but not suitable for any amount of rough water.
I love this little kayak, it's light enough and small enough for very easy transport.

Youth Kayak

Pros: very stable and fairly light
Cons: not suitable for a 180lb man trust me on that one
" These are great little Kayaks, I bought two and the kids 6+ have a blast on them. The younger ones (under 6) needed a good deal of coaching but once they learn how to paddle they are off crusing around the lake having a blast. They are very stable and so far none of the kids have flipped accidentally. Recommend you get at least two so the kids don't fight over it and they can paddle with a buddie.
There is a toggle on the front that I can hook to my Kayak and take one of the kids on a longer paddle. "
