Made for the Young Ones
Slightly shorter and lighter than an ordinary country walking stick, the Thumb Walking Stick is designed specifically to meet the needs of the youngest walkers. It's fitted with a non-slip rubber ferrule for additional safety and can easily be shortened according to your child's height. Walking sticks for children are an excellent way of getting your child, niece or nephew excited about the outdoors and a long hike in the countryside.
The thumbstick is one of the most classic British walking stick handles, and if your junior hiker is really interested in exploring the countryside, choosing a handle with a rich history is just the way to start. A naturally occurring V-shape is quite rare to find, which makes the Walking Thumbstick that much more unique and interesting, perfect for anyone who wishes to get their child excited about hiking.
This Children's Walking Stick is produced using the coppicing method, which means that is it formed from the shoot that grows when the upper part of a young tree* is removed. Occasionally these shoots fork to produce the distinctive thumbstick shape, much sought after in the countryside.
Sizing of the Junior Thumbstick Child's Walking Stick
The length of the Junior Thumbstick is approximately 100cm (39.5") and can easily be shortened if necessary. Due to the natural sourcing and manufacturing process, however, the length may vary slightly from product to product.
*The type of wood that is used to produce this stick depends on current availability, as the natural V-shape is quite rare and hard to find. Most often the wood is either ash or hazel.
As the production process is completely natural, each Junior Thumbstick 3561 is unique. This means that the height, design and colour of these sticks may differ greatly.
