Kitealogue

Kites prefer to fly in light to moderate winds. They are made from lightweight materials, so the wind can lift them up and hold them in the sky.

No kites like to fly in heavy, gusty or strong winds. This can cause them to become unstable and crash, or put too much pressure on the fabric and stitching.

If you are choosing a kite for children, choose a small one for small children, as it won't pull as hard as a bigger kite. If a kite is pulling too hard, children will probalby let it go - and some kites will go far, if the wind is right.

Generally children under 7 won't stand still and let the wind fly the kite - so their kite may end up being dragged on the ground or caught in trees and other objects as they run about. So, generally, kites shown here are for children 7 years and over.
