Mini chick let question

Well looks like I am going get the mini chick let for my 5 year old daughter. Only can find it in 100. Was thinking should be ok. Wanted a 90 or 80 cause she only weighs 38 lbs. Question is what bindings and can they be mounted on that board? She has a size 12 shoe.
Thanks

I have a couple Chicklets for my girls, 1 90, 2 100's and a 120. The 100 will be fine. Does it have a pad where the bindings mount? That's the newer style. The newer style that came out two years ago fits the smaller feet much better than the older ones. For some reason Burton made these smaller boards too wide. For a size 12 boot, use the Burton X-small bindings, they have one rachet and are easy get one and off. I also have a small pair of Flow kids bindings, but I do not like them as much as the Burton bindings.

Perfetc yeah it has the pads. That's why I was worried about mounting binding. The sizes confused me cause they have small small then youth. I will get the 100 then. And xsmall bindings. What about the triplet tow rope thingy. Also thanks for the reply.

No problem, glad I could help. Do you mean the ringlet that mounts to the front of the board to help tow them around? I don't have one, but the concept is fine. It could help on the flats a bit. The X-smalls are fine for boots up to 4-5, so you will get plenty of mileage out of them. I usually comb Ebay weekly in the spring and summer to find deals on boots. I had all the kids size boots 11 - size 4 before any of them ever hit the slopes. When you can pick up a pair of boots for $15 you gotta grab them. They are all the Burton kids Moto boots. Have fun teaching the little one, it takes a lot of patience.
