Top 10 Tarot Decks for Kids, Tweens and Teens

Choosing a deck that is suitable for a child isn’t always easy. Children are individuals and their tastes and interests vary just as much as those of adults. I put this list together to inspire more than anything, as you will find a wide variety of deck types in this list. My choices are mainly based on my tarot experience with my own children (one boy and two girls – 16,15 and 10). Perhaps you can think of other decks that would be suitable or that you know kids like…?

Please let us know what they are in the comments section below!

Here is my Top 10 List for Children’s Tarot Decks:

* Tarot of The White Cats – The perfect deck for cat lovers of all ages. It follows the traditional RWS symbology. Suitable for younger children.

* The Whimsical Tarot – A brightly coloured fairy tale themed, non-traditional deck. Suitable for younger children.


* The Mystic Faerie Tarot – A great deck and book set for all who love faeries. The deck is suitable for younger children but the book may have to wait as it is written for a grown up audience.

* The Wizards Tarot – Children who love Harry Potter will probably fall in love with this deck. Suitable for tweens and teens.

* The Gummy Bear Tarot – This deck doesn’t really have an age limit but is most definitely suitable for young children. It follows traditional RWS symbology and comes in a cute tin that kids will love.

* Manga Tarot – The perfect deck choice for the tween or teen who loves Japanese manga and anime.

* Is your tween or teen a lover of myth and fantasy in general and dragons in particular? Then they’ll probably have hours of fun with the Celtic Dragon Tarot deck and book set.

* The Tarot of VampyresThe deck for older kids who love Twilight and Vampire Diaries!

* Steampunk Tarot – another popular choice for teens. Comes as a set with a book that has some really great Tarot spreads in it as well as all the card meanings.

* The Wheel of The Year Tarot is the perfect gift for older kids who are interested in paganism and the pagan wheel of the year.

Blessed Be!

  1. My oldest son (12) has had the whimsical tarot for 2 years now, and just recently decided to go get a new deck (he feels he's outgrown it), and my younger son (10) still loves his Gummy Bear Tarot deck (but his maturity level is a little lower than his age, also). Personally, I don't like the Gummy Bears as much (I'm not a fan of Rider style decks), but I LOVE the whimsical deck, as every child knows the nursery rhymes, and fairy tales, so they can interpret the meanings very easily. Actually, I'm going to talk to my oldest about passing his down to his youngest brother (now 4) when he gets old enough to have an interest.

  2. I must add Isha Lerner's Inner Child deck, it is brightly colored and kids LOVE it! I have the Wizard's deck myself, I won it and it is actually a fabulous reading deck and the art is great! I use it all the time now (who knew?) 😉

  3. Eating archetypes can only be good! lol I know of people who eat and drink runes when they learn them… I actually had the idea to drink rune essences while studying the runes BEFORE i came across an interview with Freya Aswynn where she speaks of baking rune biscuits when she was doing her initial learning. 😀

  4. Which reminds me that I should perhaps get a deck for my son some time. 😀 (Right now he'd probably still eat the cards rather than look at them but in time…)
