The best rod and reel I have found, for kids, is a Ugly Stick 5' ultralight rod and a Daiwa 40XD underspin reel. The rod is the right size and will take a beating like no other. Kids can handle the underspin easily because it has better balance than a spincast. A spin cast always seems to turn over in small hands and then it is backwards. I recommend this outfit and feel it is worth the price of $40 to $50, maybe cheaper on sale. What have you had good or bad luck with? Keep'er Wet, Dave

I just use a small graphite spinnin rod around 5-6 long and then attach a cheep spinnin reel to it. because if its fro the kids you dont need anything powerful and fancy for some small bluegill
