    Same here - I had the Skydiver one... always dreamed of being a skydiver since being a kid, hence becoming a skydiver myself(!)

    I did have a kite but not a Wembley/Mettoy (as far as I know). It was an arch shape with lots of multi-coloured streamers hanging off the flat bit of the arch and weirdly it had a cartoon picture of an air ship or 'blimp' on it. No idea who made it.

    I definately had a couple of the barnstormer stunt kite. I think me and my mates must have gone through the entire range of the other kites as they were relatively cheap (didn't actually see the price of under a 1 on the advert originally). They were pretty flimsy and used to break as soon as they hit the ground, used to pop down the shops, buy another and away we go again.

    In the end we had so many spare parts, we started to build our own.

    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.
