  • We get one every year and its destroyed every year.
    I use to love flying kites as a child and they always lasted year to year.

  • We have multiple kites. My husband likes the really cool ones that require both hands to "steer" We take them to the beach every year (his parents have a house at the beach, so we get a lot of use out of them)

  • We have a few! We have NEVER used them yet though. My sister keeps buying them for my Son & saying she's going to take him to the beach & fly them but it hasn't happened yet. He has a huge one that's so pretty I'm thinking of tacking it to the ceiling of his bedroom. It's so cold here now, no beach until spring.

  • We have several broken ones. I haven't bought one in a few years. Idk if the kids are too old now or not. I should pick one up and see who wants to go out wit me next time we have a decent windy day. It's usually either too still or way too windy.

  • For many years we have had one simple little dragon kite. It's basically a 6" square with long tail. So awesomely easy to fly my three year old DD had it doing loop de loops on the beach this fall. So fun!

  • its really hard to fly kites in Oklahoma imo. DH & i used to try it a lot when we were dating but the wind is so erratic that it just tears the poor kite up.

  • My dad had those professional stunt kits like you see at the beach. The ones that are like 7-8 kites hooked together. Well I have them. Never flew them, but I have them.
