Default Waders for kiddos

My daughter who is turning 4 in a few weeks wants some waders to go fly fishing with me.. She regularly goes fishing for bluegill at a kids pond here. Any ideas for some waders? Was looking at the oaki waders online..

When I was 4, my father would just strap a life vest on me and let me go.
Waders wouldn't have mattered much as I was just going to end up face down in the water anyway.

I don't remember when I first got my son waders, but they were the 3Forks brand from Cabelas.
It's a good thing that they didn't cost much cuz it didn't take long for him to out-grow them.


Me.... age 4

I got my girls and my (tiny) wife waders at Cabelas too...looks like their prices are up from back then, but they never let us down.

My grandchildren have three years so far on Cabela's Youth Waders.

Two years for the grandson, one for the granddaughter.

Still look like new.

As I recall, they were around $40.

Not meaning to hi-jack this thread but it is related and ma be beneficial to some.

My son is 10 years old and a bigger kid. He is approx 95 lbs and about 5' tall. His shoe size today (not sure next week or week after that) is 6-6.5. I see that the Cabelas Youth waders go to a 6 and assume that is the shoe size.

What do you experienced guys recommend for kids that are tweeners? Smallest men's I can find? Small womans size? Thanks.
