Octopus Kite Review And Giveaway

As a family we love getting out and about, and even though the weather is getting decidedly colder, we love family activities to do when we are on walks etc. So today’s giveaway is perfect for these kind of occasions.

The Octopus Kite From House Of Marbles

This octopus kite is a great idea for the whole family to have when out and about in open spaces. A massive 4 metres long, it is really impressive with it’s long coloured streamers. It has an extra long cable too, making it a great idea for windy days.

What Comes In The Bag?

Octopus kite review - we recently tried out this House Of Marble kite from Wicked Uncle - see what we thought.

Inside the small outer bag is a surprisingly large kite. Made from sturdy weatherproof material, you get a brightly coloured Octopus kite, with strong string and rainbow coloured tentacles attached. The kite does needs to be tied to the cord and handle, but once this is done it is easy to fold the whole kite and handle up into a small parcel ready to take with you on your walks.

Using The Kite

This last weekend we visited Ilkley Cow And Calf rocks, which is a brilliant high open space in which to fly the kite.

NOTE: It is really important to state that you should not fly the kite

  • where there are any overhead cables,
  • in a thunderstorm,
  • near an airport or heliport or
  • near a road or other hazards

The kite was really easy to use and looks brilliant! The vents in the design actually made it easy to set it flying, and we had lots of fun!

View the kite here in the Wicked Uncle shop website, where it retails for £14.95.
