We set out to make a quality, eco-friendly outdoor toy. A kite so easy to fly… even a two year old can do it!
• Our kites are made from super-tough, recycled ripstop fabric. Each kite uses the equivalent plastic of a 2 litre water bottle. The fabric features our hand-drawn illustrations and bright colours.
• The tail acts as the rudder; keeping the kite gracefully dancing through the air... It also increases the cuteness factor by at least 30%.
• The frame of the kite is extremely light and strong which gives the kite the flexibility and strength to withstand those sudden crash landings.
• The renewable nature of wood made it an obvious choice for the handle. Lofty handles are designed to ensure little paws can keep a good grip on even the windiest days.
• The handles are equipped with 30m of cotton string, which allows the kite to get maximum hang time. The locking slots allow you to keep the kite the height you desire.
• Every kite comes in a handy recycled ripstop carry bag, making sure that you don’t lose all those important bits!
• All our packaging is plastic free!
We’ve worked really hard to find likeminded manufacturers that believe in top quality and ethical manufacturing. We have amazing factories in Vietnam and China that produce various components for us. They are then assembled and packed right here in NZ by us!
We think children aged between 3 - 8 years of age get the most out of kites. In saying that, we have had a retiree buy one for her and her husband (goals) and just try to keep the dads from “having a quick turn”. The handle has been made so even the smallest hands can hold it comfortably.
