This metal detector for kids turns average picnics, backyard hangs and trips to the park into exciting educational hunts for all things metal.

Moms and Dads, you’ll love seeing your kids engaged in play with an outdoor toy that develops their understanding of science and gets them moving.

Our included Experiment & Guide Book takes the learning opportunities to the next level. Enrich their minds with hands-on activities that explore the science of metal detecting and fuel hours of discovery in nature.

Let’s get scanning!


    The next time you’re at the shore, hide pennies in the sand for the kids to detect with their beach metal detector. If they find all of them, they win. If they don’t, you win!
    Take this kids metal detector on hunt for discarded metals in your local park. An interactive mission is the best way to teach the kids about caring for the environment and make it part of their lives.
    Who knows what treasures await under the grass in your own yard? Let the kids unearth forgotten trinkets, lost jewelry and loose change and then sort their finds with this junior metal detector.
    How deep can the metal detector detect before the beeping fades? Place coins in a clear dish and cover with an inch of sand, using a ruler to measure. Scan and listen for the tone. Repeat the process, adding more inches of sand until the tone stops entirely.
    Ever wonder what’s metal and what isn’t? Gather a bunch of household objects like coins, jewelry, keychains and toys. Hover the metal detector over each to see if it beeps. If it does, it’s metal! Keep track of all metal and non-metal discoveries in a notebook.
    How many bits of metal would you find if you scanned the whole park? Find out by measuring out a spot with pegs and string. Carefully sweep the metal detector inside the square and make note of the times it beeps. Repeat four times in different sections, then add up the results and divide by four.
