My kids bought me a kite for Father's Day last week. The kite crashed and burned today, so it set me thinking about buying a proper stunt kite, but they're expensive. I was also thinking about the kites I had as a kid, and went hunting for the Rotor Plan Kite, I think my auntie in Australia bought me, when she was visiting the UK.
I loved it. Rotating wings which took it into the air. Very different from your usual kite. I thought I'd be able to find it, and pictures of the kite, on the internet, but there's only one reference I can find, which exactly describes the kite I had, which you can see the drawing on the left, Rotor Plane Kite. There are some updated versions of the kite, so maybe I'll go buy. Ahhhh, childhood memories. It's set me thinking about what my Top 10 childhoodtoys were. In fact, I just realised, I've already written about it 5 years ago. Toys.
