Flying a kite in the summertime is a simple thrill like nothing else: Something about a giant gust of wind taking your kite up in the air is just so exciting to watch! This summer, have the most stylish kite in the air. Let some of your favorite characters like Elsa or Grogu take flight — or confuse other beachgoers and fly a dragon or a parrot sky high. You'll be blown away by all of the options!

Pizza Kite

Throwing your food up in the air isn't typically a good thing, but we'll make an exception for this pizza kite. Send your kite up in the air and see just how high your piece of pie can go. Just watch out for flying pepperonis! 

Melissa & Doug Winged Dragon Shaped Kite

Your local park will look like a scene out of Game of Thrones when you send this dragon kite flying through the skies. The Melissa & Doug kite has a 62-inch wingspan, easily making your dragon kite the king of the sky — and you the Mother of Dragons. Don't worry, they know to keep the fire breathing to a minimum. 

Aktudy Traditional Chinese Dragon Kite

Did you know that kites were originally invented in Asia? The windy wonders date as far back as the 5th century. Honor the invention of the kite and the history behind it with this traditional Chinese dragon kite. The lightweight kite is partially made from bamboo, just like the original kites.

HONBO Huge Shark Kite

Sharks and the beach normally aren't the combo you want. However, this shark gets official approval to come to the beach since he stays high in the sky and far away from the water. This kite is super lightweight and simple to maneuver, making it perfect for first-time kite fliers. 

JEKOSEN Parrot Kite

Parrots love to imitate us humans, so try flapping your wings and jumping up and down to see if that makes this parrot take off. Didn't work? No problem. This kite should have no problem getting its wings, with a 55-inch wingspan that basically flies itself. This parrot kite will feel right at home in the sky.

Mint's Colorful Life DIY Kite Kit

Get ready to take your artistic imagination to new heights. This DIY kite kit comes with everything you need to make a one-of-a-kind creation. Stick with the provided markers or grab some of your own paints and glitter to make your kite stand out in the sky.

Mandalorian Baby Yoda Diamond Kite

Grogu's no stranger when it comes to the skies. The adorable creature is used to traveling at light speed, so a leisurely breeze should be no problem for the little guy. Maybe he'll even channel his inner Force to help you get him off the ground and up in the air. 

X-Kites Spiderman Gliders

Who needs a gust of wind when you have spidey-senses? This kite floats right through the air, just like the famous web slinger. Don't worry if this lightweight kite takes a hard crash every once in a while: it's built with Stark-like tech and is super durable to hold up no matter how often you use it. 

Sun Squad Pineapple Kite

If you're looking for a durable kite to travel with you to the beach or the park, your search is over! This pineapple kite from Sun Squad easily folds up and is the perfect size to throw in a bag full of toys. Not only is it durable, but it also flies high! The kite line is over 190 feet long, making a trip up to the clouds a breeze.

In the Breeze Mermaid Kite

When Ariel said she wants to be where the people are, I don't know if this is exactly what she had in mind. Give her a bird's eye view of her home in the ocean with this 45-inch Fly-Hi Kite. Watch as her tail flutters in the wind, just as it would in the water. 

WindNSun Space Shuttle Kite

3, 2, 1 ... lift off! Send this space shuttle flying through the atmosphere right to the International Space Shuttle. Just hope you don't have to call Houston with any problems!

WindNSun Buzz Lightyear Kite

To infinity and beyond! Well, hopefully not too far beyond, with your little one holding on to the handle! This fiberglass airframe kite will let Buzz channel his inner space ranger and put his wings to good use. Something tells me Buzz will feel right at home gliding through the air.

WindNSun Super Size 3-D Pirate Ship Kite

Is it opposite day? It must be if this pirate ship is floating in the sky rather than the sea. Or maybe they've moved on to conquering the skies! Whatever the case may be, this 3-D Pirate Ship Kite will soar through the skies just like it does the sea. Let's just hope they have a map on board!

WindNSun Frozen Elsa Kite

I know Frozen is all about “Let It Go,” but don't let go of this handle and send your Elsa kite “Into The Unknown!” Hold on tight to the handle as you watch Elsa soar sky high. Give her some company on her new adventure, and let Olaf join in on the fun! Just don't let him get too close to the sun — you wouldn't want to let him melt!
