Kids ages 7 and 8 can operate it easily
Adults got the kites up, the mechanism locks easily and we handed off to the kids
However, with I would think of a different product for children under 8 years old
knocking one star for the 'feel' and concern with long term quality but its very much better than any other kite winding/unwinding i've done
It is not very well made and I believe it should not be described as professionalI own over 25 stunt and single line kites and have flown kites for over 40 years
So many times people asked me 'where do you get that?'
