6 Kid Friendly Pets

PEKIN, Ill., – Are your kids begging for a pet? If you're like most parents, you might feel apprehensive about getting your child their first pet. We came up with a list of 6 kid friendly, easy to manage pets that won't drive you crazy! Animals are a fun and rewarding addition to your family! Check out these fun critters to pick up from the pet store:

1. Hermit Crabs

Hermit crabs are probably the most low maintenance pets you can think of. They're a great first pet for kids learning responsibility and they're very inexpensive.

2. Hamsters

Hamsters are also a great low-maintenance pet for kids. They are relatively easy to care for and can be fun to play with and handle outside of their cages.

3. Guinea Pigs

Guinea pigs require a bit more space than their hamster friends as they grow to a larger size. They are also much more vocal and can be a great pet for kids.

4. Fish

Once you have their habitat set up, fresh water fish are probably the easiest and most visually appealing pets to care for. The hardest part is keeping the tank clean!

5. Tortoise

Tortoise are an easy to care for and fun pet for children. Be aware though, that they're lifespan is rather long so you could be in for a time commitment! 

6. Rabbits

Rabbits require a bit more attention and space than other small pets, but given the proper attention they can make cuddly companions! They can even be easily trained to use a litter box!

There are tons of other animals that would make great small additions to the family, but these 6 kid friendly pets are our favorite! We would like to encourage you to do a lot of research when choosing to bring an animal into your home! Always purchase pets from reputable stores and never remove an animal from the wild! To ensure your pets are receiving the best care possible, be sure to consult with professionals before bringing your new friend home!
