That's more of an issue of your judgement. The Pygmy triple comes in plans. Don't discount the idea of a double and single. You're not going to be paddling a triple where an 8yr old can't paddle a single. When my girls were 7 and 8 I had boats for each of them. Going to pool practice was fun.
CLC Shearwater double looks good
Pugmy Osprey 13 is a very good little kayak, not particularly maneuverable but light,strong and easy to move. My daughter learned to roll in that kayak when she was 11.
