Kite flying is one lovely childhood memory. Spending the hours in the sunshine flying a kite up high with not a care in the world. With it being National Kite Flying Day today I thought I would try out 3 of the best kites on Amazon. I didn’t search for anything particular, kids ‘Kids Kites‘. Having 3 kids meant I was able to get 3 different ones to try out and they were all going to be happy and we could give them a good testing.
Kite flying is a great activity for children to do. It helps them develop strength and coordination. They have to learn how to launch it, how wind effects this and learn from their mistakes. Let alone the strengthening of holding it high up in the air!

3 Popular Kids Kites
This kids kite was for Sofia and she loved it. This was an Amazon choice at the time of ordering and had over 83% of 5 star ratings. I can see why! It was a perfect kids kite. Measuring 107cm and full of colour it looked fantastic up in the sky. Sofia was able to control the kite well and loved running around with it!
We went kite flying in The New Forest as we could find a lovely open area with no overhead cables around and Wilverley Plain was slightly higher up and plenty of wind for us to fly them. However this kids kite says that it is an easy flyer even in light winds. It was pretty windy when we flew them so had no troubles getting it up in the air to fly by herself.
This kids kite was for Lily. The rainbow tassels stood out to me for her! The Tomi Kite was very pretty up in the air, with 6 100″ rainbow tails blowing in the wind. The kite was large it’s self, 60 inches wide and 32 inches long! With 73% 5 stars it was again a popular one.
This was very easy to fly, with no troubles getting the kite up into the air and she was able to do it all by herself. It has a 100m string so can fly very high!
I decided to pick a different one for Tyler. He is 13 and when I spotted this huge eagle kite I knew he would be pretty impressed!
Straight away we struggled with this one, it wanted to nose dive downwards and wouldn’t fly up easily. We were silly and didn’t put the kites together at home, so when it came to putting them together in the wind we struggled a bit! However no fault of the kite. So it wasn’t until we go home and looked into it a bit more, there was a bracket on the back that the poles stuck into that was facing the wrong way. This made the poles bend a different way and make the kite fly incorrectly.
Once it was up in the air it looked amazing! I think Tyler will be looking forward to going out again and having another go where he didn’t struggle so much now we have fixed the poles properly.
This kite is huge, 180cm wide and 82cm tall. It really suited Tyler well as a 13yr old boy kite flying!
We had lots of fun kite flying with the children. They are going to be left in the boot of the car now to take with us on more walks.
I found this place to visit through the Solent Kite Flyers website, they had a list of places to go which they think are good for kite flying along the South.
