Bee kite


This soft kite from G-Kites comes complete with line, so you can be in the air almost immediately.  Unlike many soft kites, it is not fussy about wind conditions, and flies extremely well.  It is almost 6ft tall, including its “sting” and stands out really well in the sky.  There are not many kites designed to look like insects, but this one certainly looks the part.  It packs away very easily in the small bag provided, and is totally trouble-free.  I can highly recommend it for your first venture into soft kites, and at a price of $70 it is good value direct from G-Kites.  You may see similar-looking ones on eBay, from Chinese dealers.  My advice is to avoid them, as they are vastly inferior and you will be wasting your money.
