Top 10 Best Pets for Kids
The Top Ten
If you REALLY want a rabbit, get one! Just give it the right care, kids can't care for it on their own, so you need to do a lot. But if your kid is around 8 or 10, get him or her a guinea pig. For about 8+, or if you don't feel comfortable giving them an animal that young, 10+, rabbits are 10+, guinea pigs are 8-10+.
Rabbits live a long time and are fun for kids to have. Are fun to handle and are very soft, your kid will fall in love with it. Being expensive is a disadvantage but not a waste of money. There are a lot of varieties to choose from.
No I have a rabbit they are awful for kids because kids don't know how to handle them and they will fight if they feel threatened
Easy cute and fun to dress up
Gerbils are the only pet rodent that's diurnal. (Awake day or night). You could watch them do cut things during the day and not during the night when you're sleeping. Gerbils have a big liver which keeps them clean and don't smell and they can control when they wanna poop or not. They are easy to handle. They only need cleaning once every week. They are desert animals and get most of their water from their food so rarely drink water! They are very cute and friendly. Gerbils are the long-living rodents with a lifespan of 5 years and rarely bite.
Ooh! 100% vote gerbil! Lol... I like gerbils because they are cute and awesome.
Gerbils are super cute and cuddly pets for 5+ Kids
This is very true
Are very fun to watch and are cute. Will be shy at first and is one of the easiest rodents to tame and handle. Will bite at first but then will stop after a while.
Guinea Pigs are great companions for 8+ Kids

They won't bite. Rarely poop and are just plain fun to have for all ages. Kids usually like rabbits and turtles and will love this pet as a gift.
Sea turtles are great pets for kids except for the fact that you'll be put in prison.
Yes they DO poop a lot
Turtles can and will bite unless you raise them from a baby and they know you. we have had a red eared slider for 5 years. my grandson can hand feed her but anyone else and she will bite.
Dogs may not be the easiest pets to take care of but kids LOVE them
Dogs are good family pets and mostly love kids! They will cuddle and protect them. The dog and kid will enjoy each other and will be lifelong BFFs.V 1 Comment
Fish may live a short life but are 100% easy to take care of. Just buy the fish, the aquarium, food and decorations and DONE. That simple and it is fun to watch them eat.V 2 Comments
Mice are fun, fast and cute creatures. If you get more mice than three than you're in for some fun. They will play and just be clowns. They will be fun to watch, espiecially for kids. Make sure kids don't handle them because they are fast and very small.

Hamsters do bite quite a lot and are very hard to tame. But if your kid has patience, love and careful they will fall in love with it. Hamsters are recommended for kids age 6-14.V 1 Comment
