    Default Mettoy/Wembley Kites

    Back in '74, I had a plastic Kite made by Mettoy under the Wembley name (made Footballs too).
    It was part of a range of kites that featured a Bird, Helicopter, genie, etc..

    The one I owned was the Vampire, and this so far is the only picture available..



    However, the artist who drew this ad has used a little artistic license, and it does not look like the actual kite I owned.





    Did anyone else own one of these kites?? Still own one??

    Better still has anyone got a picture of their kite or my Vampire one??

    Great to see what the Mettoy Vampire kite looked like although only a drawing of it on the box. Surely a photo of one wil turn up sometime. I'll see if I can find anything in some of my magazines.

    Just to add to this a bit...

    I had the barnstormer kite and loved it.

    After that was destroyed by a very interesting bit of flying into a tree, I got another kite. This one was of a footballer which you could customise with stickers (?). It wasnt a stunt kite. Not sure which company made it so any help with a picture would be helpful!
