Best to begin them young, runs the age-old (but true) advice. And, with a host of devices dedicated to child use, this very much also applies to binoculars. 

These visual devices can be simultaneously educational and fun, encouraging an interest in science, nature and sports, and both stimulating little brains and staving off boredom during family hiking trips or when traveling. For this reason, binoculars can make great gifts for kids, and there are specific models available for specific ages – from toddlers to teenagers, and beyond.
