Thing a beardie would be great our son is 5 and we have beardies.
They are so laid back, also very tame and bigger to handle.

meko's said it all really.
xD
i recomend the arcadia d3+ 12% uvb bulb or the reptisun 10.0
here's a good caresheet from hadesdragons on here.
http://www.hadesdragons.co.uk/care-art.html
have a read through it has a checklist for everything you need as well.
don't go with the starter packs, they're generally really poor.
keep away from calcisand and wood chippings.
if you still want sand childrens play sand will be fine, or you can use lino, tiles paper towels or newspaper.
while he's young it would be better to feed him in a separate tub, as they're clumsy eaters and would generally get a gob full of sand as well.
it would probably pass, but it's still a risk when they're young.
they're fantastic animals.
here's a good site to order your stuff from
Livefood UK Crickets Locusts Mealworms Reptile supplies mail order
i use these for my uvb bulbs, i get my spotlights from tesco or asda though, saves me £4. xD

Thanks again.
The idea of getting the starter kit was just so i had everything all in one go rather then shopping and forgetting something

i think i may speak a viv builder then. maybe see if they can make it to a specific size to fill the space i have for the viv, there will be more room for the beardie that way aswell.

a starter kit will have everything with it yes but you can also buy everything you need much cheaper than the kit price .. if your worried about forgetting something just write it all down 1st then make sure its there from what people have said you will need

also id go for lino if i was you .. you can get some really great styles and its quick and easy to clean so less hassle and messing with mess :P
