Children are the future of beekeeping and we need to encourage them as much as possible to be with the honey bees. This product is our Children's Beekeeping Suit. So they can they can help with the bees or manage their own Bee Colonies in the future.

Build their confidence by than getting them their very own Children's Beekeeping Suit. Made from 100% cotton and come with a detachable fencing style veil.

Being a full suit the children are less likely to get propolis on their normal clothes.

We recommend they are worn with gumboots (wellingtons), and the Beesuit trouser are pulled over the boot.

There are four sizes of the Children's Beekeeping Suits, from Smallest 4XS, 3XS, 2XS, XS the largest size. These are suitable for children of age ranges 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-14.

However, children vary greatly in height for their age so we recommend always going for the larger size where there is doubt. The Small size is suitable for children of a maximum height of 5 feet (1.52m).

Here are the Sizes

4XS – Ages 5 to 6
3XS – Ages 7 to 8
2XS – Ages 9 to 10

    Great suit, quality material and well made. Good to be able to engage children in bee work and understanding the importance of bees. Larger than anticipated but thankfully children grow !

    What a great product!! It is excellent quality. I am very impressed with the suit and also with the service received from Kiwimana. My Grandson is enjoying wearing his suit and I think he looks “the bee’s knees” in it!

    Great bee suit, our little boy is only 20months old, so it is massive on him but we just roll the sleeves and bottoms up and it does the trick!
