New Kites!

Although you might not realize it from the chilly outside weather or the impending snow storm that is approaching the Philadelphia region, but Spring is actually coming, and with it some nicer weather. Time to fly some kites! We have several new kites in for the Spring. Here are some of the new ones:

Pirate Ship Bali Kite

5653

We’ve had 3D Pirate kites in the past, but they got prohibitively expensive. Now this new 3D Pirate Ship Kite is ready to set sail for the skies!

Rainbow Delta Kite with Spinner

This kite’s main feature is the huge spinner that flies after it!

5654

The bright and bold delta kite is easy to fly and sports a 42′ spinning curlie tail.  Great for beginning kite flyers who want a bit more pizazz to their flyers!

Silhouette Bird Kites

5656

These colorful silhouette bird kites span 44″ wide and really stand out in the sunny skies. The birds are available in purple (shown) as well as Teal.

Silhouette Butterfly Kites

5658

These two-toned butterfly silhouette kites stand out much like their bird partners, but also include colorful 6′ streamers extending from each butterfly. The butterfly silhouettes come in blue/green and pink/purple.

Solar Powered Butterfly

We’ve got a new nifty Solar Powered Toy in stock, its the Solar Powered Butterfly!

This is a butterfly that flaps its wings in sunlight. You put it together and color the wings as you like, then place it in a sunny window as shown. The solar panel then powers the wings to flap!

As mentions, this is a toy that you assemble yourself. The kit arrives disassembled and uncolored as you see here:

Solar panel, motor, clamps, wings, and suction cups are all included, as well as paint to color up the wings. You can follow the pattern on the box or do it your own way! Full color instructions are included!

This is a great project that teaches kids some basic circuitry, solar power, as well as letting them show their artistic side!  For ages 8+.
