This DIY Kite is Perfect For Flying On a Nice Summer Day

TAIT Design Co. has created a super fun DIY kite kit that comes perfectly in time for summer. Who doesn't love to fly a kite on a glorious summer day?

“Kaku Dako is a DIY paper and bamboo kite kit that teaches you how to put it together. Inspired by traditional Japanese kites, TAIT Design Co. from Detroit, MI has created a version that’s easy to assemble and practically flies itself. It comes in three colors – Peach, Mint, and Black and White, with different geometric patterns on the front. There are effortless instructions printed on the backside of the kite, and assembly is easy with mess-free peel and stick glue strips.”

“This kite soars with ease, and once you’re ready to put it away for the day, you simply tuck it back inside its reusable cardboard briefcase for safekeeping. The briefcase serves a great purpose in this way and is also super fun for kids or adults to tote around as the kite string handle is integrated into the packaging as the handle of the briefcase! 

Highlighted as a ‘Product We Love’ on Kickstarter, the product is currently available for pre-order at the affordable price of $15. Designed and manufactured in Detroit, MI with all materials sourced in the USA except the handle and string.”
