Walking Stick for Children
With hiking sticks it's important that they're slightly taller than ordinary canes, so at 92cm (36") this Chestnut Crook is perfect for little hikers. This size is perfect for children under 140cm, and the shaft can easily be cut even shorter to fit your child's height ideally.
As children tend to grow up even faster than you expected, it's good to find a hiking stick that isn't only functional, but affordable as well. This means your child will always have a stick of just the right height.
The Hen Crook
Traditionally used by farmers' wives to catch hens by the neck, nowadays hen crooks are used as everyday walking sticks for children, as they are slightly shorter and much lighter than ordinary crook canes. They are often used as crooks for the shepherds in nativity plays as well.
Chestnut wood is known for its strength and durability, making it the ideal material for walking sticks. This Kids' Walking Stick is made from peeled chestnut wood that has been steamed and bent into the attractive crook shape.
