One item on Today’s Woman’s summer toy list is a kite. Just like blowing bubbles it is part of a childhood unplugged. Flying kites is a great reason to get outside, disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature. While there are a lot of licensed character kites out there for kids, these expensive kites are poorly made and don’t fly well. During my online search for a kite for my daughter I notice that online retailer aGreatLife has a good selection of kites for kids.
Rainbow Butterfly Kite Review
Our choice, The Rainbow Butterfly Kite from aGreatLife is a wonderfully bright and impressive kite. It is very easily to assemble following the instructions on the packet and we had ours put together in just a few minutes.
The company aGreatLife wants to insure that their costumers enjoy their kite for many years to come. Therefore, they use high quality and fade-proof ripstop polyester fabric for increased stability, sturdy rods to provide a strong frame and an easy-grip flat line winder with durable string for easier navigation.
The Rainbow Butterfly Kite measures 38.2 inches long and 18.1 inches across. It features a 7-feet long tail for superb stability during flight. The easy-grip handle, makes it a perfect option for beginners. It comes with 50-m string for your flying pleasure. The kite itself is very lightweight.
The kite flies well in light to medium winds (approximately 6-15 mph). The first day we flew the kite, wind was about 4 mph, so we had quite a few crashes. As for durability, it has so far survived all crashes with no damage to the kite. It almost indestructible.
Packing up is a breeze, too! The Rainbow Butterfly Kite is fully fold-able for easy storage. It disassembles as quickly as it goes together.
In addition to The Rainbow Butterfly Kite, other popular kites for kids include: A best seller on Amazon- aGreatLife Huge Rainbow Kite for Kids, baby octopus kite, pirate kite for kids, hotdog kite, a unique ice-cream cone kite and a diamond shape kite.
Not only are kites fun to fly, learning how to launch and control a kite will help a young child develop coordination and critical thinking skills. Kids can also learn about weather, science, physics, and ecology. A young child will also feel the excitement when they finally launch, therefore building their self-esteem. I remember the joy of flying my first kite. I remember that spark of magic I felt in not just getting my kite up into the air, but in seeing how high and far away it would travel. Do you remember the joy of flying a kite when you were a child? Does your child own a kite?
Keep in mind these common Kite flying safety precautions:
