A Birdie is not the best disc for a 4 year old if they have small hands, too small for that disc. The Birdie in very lightweights is still not a bad disc for a young kid, a good choice just will not work if they have small hands for their age.

I honestly think the MINI BUZZZ is the way to go. They are cheap, easy to find, lightweight, throw far, fun, etc. I play with my 10 yr old nephew and he likes it and we both have fun. Check out mini discs the 6 inch ones not mini markers those aren't really throwers. -discraft has the mini buzz, challenger, zone, undertaker, crank - , Dynamic Discs has a small truth, judge, and others - and MVP has a macro(mini) tesla.

My 8 year old son won a 170 DX Wraith. I took him out throwing on the football field and it was windy. He really wanted to throw his "new" wraith (which was actually a very beat-in DX wraith), but we started with his slower and much lighter discs. He was throwing a 135g buzzz, a 155 comet, and a 160 sol. Then he also threw a 125 sidewinder. But it was windy and all those shots he threw with the wind at his back. So I let him see what the wraith would do and as expected, it dumped right out on him. But then coming back, the wind was in our face. Every disc he threw got picked up by the wind and then he threw the wraith with a beautiful s-curve right into the headwind. But now he knows a bit more about how wind affects his disc selection!

There are 20 117-118g DX Rocs in stock on Infinite Discs right now in case anyone is looking for some really lightweight mids.

That is probably a disc that a kid would be willing to throw if he sees his favorite pro using a ROC, told they are using a ROC in tournaments. I know that is why a kid used a DX Ryhno, the mold was what a featured Pro player used in the 2000's as shown in the PDGA magazine. Kid just did not like the Pro model out, too soft.
