A traditionally-shaped kite made from plastic, which has a red background and 'National Trust' in large green, black-edged letters forming a pattern. The tail is made from a very long tube of green plastic. There are two plastic sticks forming the frame of the kite - the upright one is white, the slightly curved crossways one is pink. Each end of each of these is held in place with a clear plastic piece. Each of these has been secured with Sellotape. There are two string-holders (controllers) attached to the kite through holes in the front to the frame at the back with nylon thread. This thread is then tied to a small white plastic piece which is attached to the end of the kite's 'string', which is then wound round on to the holder (controller). Each of these is made from white plastic, and has a handle shape moulded behind the string winder.
