is there going to be a children edition?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I am wondering if there is ever going to be a children's edition of Junkyard Wars because at the moment I am unable to apply for the show due to the age limit. I think it would be a great idea for a future episode.

I think there should be an episode for children. If anything one or two adults can go on the show to help them with the tools or to pick up heavy meterials such as an engine.

I think There should be an episode for kids

I agree, maybe a show or just a special every now & then for teenagers & a show for 12 & under. There is a difference in how the mind works depending on age & I would like to see how these kids think.

I think it would be a GREAT idea because I am only 14 (uneligable to participate) and most of the time my ideas are better than the ones that the contestants have. Also, I have a wide variety of metalworking skills and I have a great understanding of the science behind things. But I do think it is necessary for saftey reasons to include adults as well. I think I would make a great contestant on a team, so I agree that there should be a mixed adult-child team.

I would like a kids episode because I'm only 13 and I really like this show.

I think it you be great for a teens edition. My friends and i love the show and do alot of work with metal and macinery. All of us have a good grasp of mechanics and metalworking. We also come up with ideas to slove the problems that are as good if not better than some of the ideas presented on the show.

I think it would so cool for a kids version of junkyard wars. Me and my freinds have built a gokart,boat,lots of forts,and a non working helicopter,and an airplane

I think a kids version whould be good because kids just like your show and kids do know ideas that whould work and some have worked with metal and things like that.

Here is an alternative: http://www.soinc.org/ The National Science Olympiad. Its advantage: A lot more of you could participate. If they did have a kids scrapheap, they would need a total of 8 teams from the whole country. Would those of you clamoring for the show be content to just watch? Thats what most of you would have to do.
Ask your teachers about starting a team at your school. Then nag the TV people to televise the tournaments. (they have telivised the national tournament in past years) Get to build stuff yourself, rather than watch other kids.

Thier should be an eposd for the kids. How do you know that tha kids might even beat the parents.Yeah a kids verses parents junkyard wars.

A Kid Version of Junkyard Wars. It is a the best idea to have kids build things like go carts, boat's, go cart limo's where all the team members race the other team. And even if one or two adults have to go and help so what. But my friends and I have built many go-carts and all kind of things out of JUNK. There for there Should be a Jr. Junkyard Wars where the age limit should be (11 to 18).

I am 15 years old and I really want there to be an episode for kids. My friends and I builds battlebots and have good machinery, metal working skills. DO THE KIDS SHOW!!!
-- Tom Wilga (email@example.com), February 06, 2001.
yeah ive build a lot of stuff like gokarts, tanks, and a ditr bike out of junk and ive got better ideas than the people on the show

What was that? Hieroglyphics I guess...This ain't no video game.....Fingers fly off with these joysticks! Mig welders, lathes, grinders, bone-slicing saw blades...... No band-aid is gonna help one of these boo-boo's. Just the kind of thing parent's love to sue over.....

yes,I would love to be on junkyard wars I'm 14 years old and not able to play.I have great ideas for junkyard wars.I love to buildthings,I have a three story tree house in my back yard and a half of a half pipe.I agree with audlts helping with the tools and lifting the heavy metal.I'v also watched almost watched all your shows and I think its great.

I agree with the frankfurter. This would never fly in the English speaking countries. Kids could get hurt, maimed, or killed. Parents have knowledge of, and access to, costly legal recourse.
How about in China or India though?
-- Dalton (email@example.com), May 09, 2001.
...The first show could be a race to see how many Nike Air Jordans each team could make in an 18 hour work day. My money is on the Chinese kids. Attached to each kid would be a clock. Attached to the clock would be an explosive device. Each kid would then be forced to raise a mini from a submerged platform using only a crane, two oil drums and a suffocated Canadian...
