Are Your Kids Scouting?

Is eBay or Amazon FBA in his or her future? Then your child may enjoy a new website! Mike Wolfe of The History Channel’s American Pickers has a new website for kids under the age of 14.

Kid Pickers is a new online community that helps kids learning about history through picking. Wolfe began picking at an early age by finding a bicycle in the trash that he resold a few days later. The site provides an opportunity for kids to tell the others about great finds. A couple of the sites profiles show an 8-year old from Georgia that has more than 2000 pieces in his Star Wars collection and a 12-year old New Yorker who has a collection of presidential memorabilia. It also has a lesson guide for parents to help turn picking into a learning opportunity. The site does carry a one-time membership fee of $5. Half of the membership fee is donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Kid Pickers is also sponsoring a contest. Some young pickers will have the chance to be featured in Wolfe’s upcoming book, Kid Picker Book: From Junk to Treasure – A Guide to Picking for Kids. To join or to find out more about the site, please click here.
