“The KaZoon Kite isn’t your ordinary, run-of-the mill kite. No, indeed. It’s a tetrahedron. . . . I guarantee this is one of the most interesting kites you’ll ever see. . . . After seeing the unique shape and style of the kite, I was looking forward to trying it out. . . . All in all, this would be a fun family project, and if your kids enjoy hands-on activities, I can’t see going wrong with this one. Check it out.”
