Rated 5 out of 5 by Tj123 Great kite
Very easy to fly. Took it to the beach and was able to get it started just holding it into the wind with out any assistance. Packing it up was just as simple. Everything is in the package including string and winder. Stored it in my glovebox for our next trip to the beach. One of the beach walkers even stopped by to ask us where we got it

Rated 4 out of 5 by OhioFunLover Easy travel, no set up, perfect gift!
I purchased this kite as a Father's Day gift. It's perfect! The size makes it easy to travel with and I love that there is no set up. The kite was a bit smaller than I expected, but it performs exactly as expected. It is a good introductory kite into the higher end market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bondo843 Excellent Kite
I purchased this for the kids to use at Old Orchard Beach and ended up spending more time with it myself. It is a great kite and would probably work for a 7-8 year old and up. It handles very well and unlike the triangular shaped kites of old, it doesn't dip and dodge right and left. I has a double foil design like the high end rectangular parachutes you see the trick parachutists use. Excellent kite for the money and hopefully will provide years of use.

We bought this kite on our way out of Boston when we were heading up to New Hampshire and Maine for a day trip...knowing we would stop along the way on a beach. When we got to one of our first beaches, the kite was easy to 'assemble' (take out of the pouch and tie strings together). There was no fuss or frustration with the string...reeling it in or out. One of the best purchases we made during our trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewMexicoGal A Kite that's easy to fly!
I bought this kite for my grandbabies while visiting my son and his family in Maine. My granddaughters are 6, 5, 4, and 2. The three older ones could easily fly the kite even though there was only a slight breeze the AND it actually stayed in the air with very little effort. Yea! How many kites can you say that about?! They LOVE it and so do their mom and dad! Thanks LL Bean for making a terrific product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNMetroMomof4 Great kite!
Extremely portable. Has carrying case. Strong string. Easy to fly. Compact, yet big when it flies. No assembly required. You can pack this one up in a suitcase and bring it with you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Littlesapphire So much fun!
My husband and I have been dying to go out and try out our new kites, but the weather just hasn't been cooperating. So even though the winds were only about 3 mph with some stronger gusts here and there, we went out to see how they would do. This kite really took off! It flew so easy and so steadily, and when it did crash, it was very easy to get it to fly again; just a pull of the string and it was back in the air!
I would highly recommend this kite to anyone who wants an fun and easy toy to play with on breezy days. Plus it's beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TravellingNana Great Idea
We bought this for our 12-year-old great nephew to bring on a beach vacation. It has no "bones" and is made of fabric so it fits in a tiny corner of a suitcase. The string is included and comes on a reel that attaches to the stuff sack with snaps. Brilliant! The kite has beautiful colors, is easy to fly and has a fabulously long tail. Our nephew loves it. I highly recommend this item.
