The star of the hit show American Pickers shares his love of treasure-hunting with kids.


Mike Wolfe’s love for “picking” started with old bikes, cigar boxes, and other items people may have called “junk.” A self-taught picker, he now shares his passion for picking with his enthusiastic kid audience, and offers tips on collecting, sorting through flea market offerings, asking relatives about family heirlooms, and much, much more. In the process, kids will pick up history, research skills, and new hobbies galore (and maybe even help clean the attic).

 

Kids love treasure-hunting. Kid Pickers is a fun and practical resource from one of the most popular pros around.
