My good friend Dave stopped by Christmas day to drop off some Christmas presents and knows about my Wet Shaving hobby so he got this for my two year old Son-

My little one is very interested in watching Dad shave, especially in trying out my brushes so this was a great gift for him as he took out his new shaving kit.

My eight year old Son was curious what was going on so, he too, came in and I gave his my Gem G bar(sans razor of course) and I had him whip out some lather with an Semogue Owners Club and some Proraso and the three of us has a nice shave for Christmas day!

Start them young. Just be sure they don't grab your razor by mistake.

That's Great.

I found a Can of Goo and the same Razor for my 4 year old and I am going to give it to him when he is 5 (May 2013).

My 15 year old wanted a Red Razor, so I got him a Red Handeled Merkur for Christmas.

He uses the AOS Badger Starting Brush (a really small brush),

KMF Cool Mint Shaving Cream, and

an Astra Blade.

I think that is also the same kit my 5-year-old nephew got for Christmas as well.

I saw this kit during Christmas and thought about getting it for my 3 year old. Then I realized that he already uses my Target Shea Moisture "Ultimate" badger brush and my old TSD soaps that don't work, at least they don't lather, but they do make bubbles and he loves it.

Thanks for sharing and I'm sure that you made a Christmas memory that you'll have forever.

Good idea!

Let me share with you the memory of my firsts classical shaves around 40 years ago. Standing on a stool in front of the mirror and porcelain sink with taps those cross, armed of the safety razor without blade of my father and the Myrurgia soap stick. Lathering and lathering with a brush, a lot of passes with the safety razor. I do not remember how many passes I did, but I think that was enough, because my mother had to come to finish by force.
