I've had great experience pairing kids with the Werner Sprite. Both one and two piece models are tough.
There's a paddling shop near KC that was closing out some Scouts new for $250 a month or so ago. They may have an orange one left. Great boat choice for kids up to about 10 years old, depending on size. KC Paddler in Peculiar, MO.
