Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.

The Lofty Eco-Friendly Kites have been consciously designed with both sustainability and ease of use in mind. When Lofty set out to design their cool kites, they knew they wanted it to be durable and sustainable (rather than just ending up in the landfill), and easy enough for a two-year-old to fly it. Well, they nailed both!

Made from 100% super-tough recycled ripstop fabric, Lofty Kites are shaped to lift-off even in a light wind. The poles of the kite are strong, yet flexible and lightweight, and the handle is made from wood rather than plastic. The handles come with 30 m of cotton string to allow for a great hang time (and the locking slots allow you to keep your desired height), and they've been designed to ensure little hands can grip even on a windy day.

Available in: Arctic, Africa, Desert, Dino Days, Fruit Salad, Happy Days, Jungle, Bege Patch, and Woodland

  • Fun, bright kite made from sustainable materials
  • Made from super-touch, recycled ripstop fabric
  • Each kite uses the equivalent of a 2 litre water bottle
  • Fabric features unique hand-drawn illustrations and bright colours
  • Tail acts as the rudder allowing the kite to gracefully dance through the air (and ups the cuteness factor!)
  • Frame of the kite is extremely light and strong, giving the kite flexibility and strength to withstand sudden crash landings
  • Easy-to-hold wooden handle
  • Comes with 30 m of cotton string
  • Matching recycled rip-stop bag (plastic-free packaging)
  • Designed for ease of flight (even for kids as young as 2)
  • Quick and easy assembly
  • Designed in New Zealand
  • Dimensions: 115 cm x 63 cm

Our friends at Lofty have put together a few tips on how to get the best results from your kite.

WHERE

Try find an open space like a paddock or park. Anywhere that’s free from trees, buildings or powerlines!

The beach is the ultimate place to fly a kite, with its wide open spaces and constant breeze.

WHEN

Our kites have been designed to fly in even a light wind. The more consistent the breeze the easier it is to lift off.

If it’s blowing a gale, don’t worry. Your Lofty can handle it. But hold on because you’re in for a wild ride.

STEP 1

Pop the kite out of it’s bag and attach the horizontal pole into the pole tabs on the kite.

STEP 2

Tie a loop in the string big enough for the handle to fit through. Thread the looped end through the eyelet and then pass the handle though the loop.

Pull the string tight and you’re good to go!

SOLO LAUNCH

It’s easy to launch a Lofty on your own if the breeze is nice and consistent.

Hold your kite near the top of the string line, stand with your back to the wind and let it catch the kite.

As the kite ascends, slowly let more line out until the kite is soaring above you.

BUDDY LAUNCH

If you are having trouble on your own you can always ask a friend to help.

Holding onto the handle, have your buddy stand 5-10m downwind with the kite.

With a tight line and the kite pointing up, have them launch the kite into the sky.

You’re away flying.

Based on the west coast of Muriwai, New Zealand. Lofty is proudly a family-owned and operated company.

Jo and Nikolai head up team Lofty and are responsible for everything from design, branding, marketing, and logistics.

Arie and Pia may be the smallest members of the team but have the very important role of product testers and (sometimes reluctantly) kite models.

While on a holiday in Bali, every afternoon when the sea breeze picked up, we noticed a local boy and his grandad would walk the beach with a kite in hand. The joy and wonder on the boy’s face really resonated with us and sparked memories of kite flying as a child.

With this vision in mind, we returned home and set out to design our perfect kite. Although designing a new product from scratch is sometimes daunting, it allowed us to set some very important parameters that matched our values.  Sustainability, Quality, and Functionality were the three pillars of the design, if we could not achieve all three the project just wouldn’t fly (excuse the pun).

Twelve months later and after multiple designs, materials, illustrations, samples, and late nights, we had landed on our final design and were ready for take-off! (again, sorry for the puns).

Ashley has gone out of her way to help me every time I've ordered, and honestly I'm starting to order more and more. It's hard to find truly eco baby products you can trust. It's so nice that Ashley has done the work for me. Postage is fast, communication is prompt and the website is lovely to use.
