            I had the hawk kite shown in the picture. Lasted for several years before the string got badly tangled. Totally forgot about it until I saw the photo. Good clean fun. Don't see many kids with kites these days.

              I had the Wembley Barnstormer Stunt Kite as a kid, that thing was magical!

              Great seeing those pictures of the other kites, I remember seeing them for sale at Holiday Camp shops when I was a kid, I seem to remember buying the Spider-man one and also a similar Batman one to fly on holiday on the beach.

              I have a cheap stunt kite now too which i'll fly with my sons when they are older.

                I never had any Kites that had a name like Wembley, but sure as night ollows day having Kites was an immense source of enjoyment as a a kid (when I had my Kite phase) and like a "Letter In a Bottle", I always dreamed (or should that be "dare to dream") of my Kite reaching far shores (and recieving a note as toa ckowledge it got there)

                For many years too before FB etc etc took over the 'net I was a member of long standing Kite Forum portraying my memories of Kites of every size (again I must re-check out that Forum0, but sadly upon last checking in it was heading towards defunct-status, no thanks to FB etc etc!1
