Buyer's Guide : Kites for Kids

When purchasing a kite for a child, you want a kite that is easy to put together and flies without much effort. I like to recommend purchasing a kite with the traditional kite shapes like the Diamond or Delta shapes. The more complex the shape, the less likely it is to fly predictably. 

Diamond Kites

Diamond Kites

This is probably the most recognizable kite shape. These kites when paired with a tail, are just the right size for kids and really make a great impression in the sky. To assemble, simply put two fiberglass rods into the center and then into pockets in the sail, and it is ready to fly. For kids, stick with the Diamond kites in the 30-40 inch size.

Delta Kites

Delta Kites

These triangular shaped kites are very efficient in the air, and can often float in lighter winds than other kite shapes. Many come with attachment loop to attach a tail. Simply insert the cross-spar into the pockets on the back of the kite, and its ready. For kids, stick with the Delta kites in the 55-56 inch range.

Easy Flyer Kites

Easy Flyer Kites

These kites are very similar to the Delta Kite and are based on the same shape, except the "tail" is sewn into the kite's sail. This makes the kite very stable in the air, and the designs are very impressive in the air. Stick with the Large Easy Flyer or the smaller Best Fliers for kids.

Parafoil Kites

Parafoil Kites

These kites are great for kids because there are no spars to break if the kite crashes. They pack up really small and you can generally carry them in your beach bag or backpack. Stick with the Parafoil 2 or the Para-2 for younger children.
