Which Kayak For Kid

Greetings!
Jane is on board.

We do some family trips together, and this summer I was able to take my 6 y.o. son with me as he could sit on a little seat between my legs. This year however, we figure he will be too big to do that, so we're thinking about gifting him his first kayak.

Has anyone tried putting a kid that young in their own kayak? A local canoe/kayak store sells kids kayaks and says he's the right age, but I'd rather hear from someone who has tried it. And if so, which one did you choose? We're planning to start with towing, and then step-by-step learn him to paddle near us "solo".

We're moving back to Florida (Orlando) next spring, and that's why I decided it would be a good decision to ask you for recommendations.
So thanks in advance, as I appreciate any help.

- Jane

Ideas, anyone? Are any of these are reliable or should we look for a smaller "adult" kayak like the Ghost?
Do you have kids who already kayaking with you?
