Unless you've got a seriously dexterous three year old I'd stick with a push button Zebco. My daughter just turned three and she's almost self sufficient with one. Her casting is still a bit rough, but she has no problem cranking in a fish. A spinning rod is going to add a fair amount of complexity (including heavy use of a non dominate hand). I just don't see working out well for one that young.

Yep...a good old Zero Hour Bomb Company spincast reel.

Wonder how many of them have been made in all these years?

I read that wrong. I missed the "casting" part.

Kids Casters tangle free pole! I have bought a few of the smaller poles for my 2 1/2 year old son and the Kids Casters was by far the best. The only problem I have noticed is that I have to watch him so he doesn't drag the tip when he walks because it seems to pinch the line and cut easier. They have saved a lot of time fixing his pole when we go out though.

Lots of questions here, need more info;
What techniques will the rod be used for
What weight will you be throwing
Heavy cover or open water
A rod that will handle any bait type or size effectively and efficiently. How many 2 ounce swimbaits does she plan on throwing on it? Does she throw 1/16 ounce jigs with it? Drop shot? What one line will she be using? Find me a rod I can pull a 25 foot diving crank, retie, and throw a weightless finesse worm on. Should I use 16 lb mono or, 8 lb fluoro, or 60 lb braid on it cause you may want to flip and pitch with it too. As you can see these are just some basic questions, there is no right answer for her. My advise would be to get a G Loomis NRX 893c jwr and match it up with a Shimano Metanium XG MGL, this will get her in the right ballpark, YMMV...

Hopefully he just throws a Spinner bait on there for her! Knowing little kids they just like to reel and look around! Lol

+1

Then move up to a Zebco 33 combo when she's about 5 or 6

Give one of these a try! It has everything your 3 year old daughter will need to be a successful angler!

At three years old I would get the cheapest one you can as there is a good chance that it will end up at the bottom of whatever lake / pond you take her to. Awesome job getting her involved in the sport early. Fishing with my daughters is one of the greatest pleasures in my life.
