Additional Information

While the earliest written record of kite flying comes from China in 200 BCE, kite flying for fun and for sport became popular in the U.S. in the 1970s. The growth in the  popularity of kite flying has been attributed to Peter Powell and his introduction of the toy dual-liner stunt kite. In the 1970s, stores specializing in various types of kites could be found throughout the U.S. Come Fly a Kite, Inc. was one of those shops. The company opened in 1974 and featured various types of beautifully colored kites, including a kite made of mylar called the California Dragon Sunshine. While Come Fly a Kite, Inc is now a defunct corporation, many adults still recall fond memories of shopping for their colorful kites at the store located in San Francisco, CA.
