Looking to buy Kites?
There’s nothing quite like the excitement of getting a kite airborne. The thrill of feeling the tug on the string as you watch it rise into the air is second-to-none. The next windy day that comes along, why not take a new kite out into the field and fly it?
What kind of kids kites are best?
The beauty of kites is that they allow us to experience flying, while keeping our feet firmly on the ground. You and your children will be able to feel the full force of the wind, as your kite soars in the sky. Our range of kits includes designs for the young, as well as technical styles for older children.
For flying eye-catching kites, go for the fun motifs and shapes such as an octopus, a butterfly, or even a dragon. If you’re looking for more of a technical kite, box kites can offer more of a challenge to fly and are available in all sorts of fun colours and designs.
How to be safe when flying a kite
When you’re flying kites, it’s really important to be safe. Make sure you’re not flying anywhere near power lines or pylons to avoid being electrocuted. Also make sure you don’t fly near any aerials or overhead lines of any other kind. Similarly, make sure you’re not flying during a thunderstorm - although the windy conditions might be tempting, the risk just isn’t worth it.
While you’re flying, keep an eye on your surroundings to make sure you’re not accidentally walking into roads, traffic, or private property. Some outdoor spaces may have guidelines on whether you can fly kites or not so make sure you’re following the rules.
Otherwise, you can fly pretty much anywhere there is a strong breeze! Large open fields, public parks, and national parks are all great places to fly a kite and have fun as a family.
