My girls really like the pink bell. My wife hasn't gotten to play with it yet. The 12kg was a bit too heavy for her.
I got introduced to bell work about two years ago and have fallen in love with it because it doesn't require a whole bunch of "crap" to perform. The kids like them because most of the exercises are fairly easy to learn. My girls picked up the snatch and the LCCJ with a bell very easily. Whereas teaching them to barbell pull properly or barbell squat properly has been a horrendous struggle. If that makes any sense?
Something about the bell work is much easier to teach to my daughters. It looks more natural on them.
All the best,
