Title: Ambidextrous reel assembly for simultaneously controlling cord windings of multiple kites flying in unison

Abstract: An ambidextrous reel assembly for simultaneously controlling cord windings of multiple kites flying in unison that includes a frame, a spindle, and a crank. The frame forms a rectangular configuration, with one short member thereof having a plurality of guide throughbores spaced therealong. The spindle includes an axle, a pair of side plates that are +-shaped, four cross members so as to form a cage configuration that rotates in the frame, and colored lights that illuminate when the spindle is rotated. The crank includes an automated rotation apparatus that automatically rotates the spindle, and a sound system that plays when the spindle is rotated. When the crank is rotated in one direction, the cage rotates in the one direction, which in turn winds the cords, through the plurality of guide throughbores in the frame, unto the cage, and when rotated in an opposite direction, the cage rotates in the opposite direction, which in turn unwinds the cords, through the plurality of guide throughbores in the frame, from the cage.
