Default Rods for Kids

I remember as a kid having small, usually cartoon-themed fishing rods for our trips out to the lake. I don't remember them being particularly effective, but I'm sure there are new and improved designs. Has anyone had any positive experiences with fishing rods for children?

Unless you go to a pro fly fishing shop, you'll probably end up with some poorly made rod that will be frustrating to use. With spinning rods you can get away with the cheap stuff but with fly fishing, it's a different game.

Lovetofish is right on with this one. I am thinking that because you put this in the fly fishing category you are looking for a fly fishing rod for a child.

The cartoon rods are for spinning, not fly fishing.

You're right, I did some research into it and realize that the rods I remember aren't for fly-fishing...is it uncommon for kids to participate in fly-fishing, making it harder to find rods for them?
