5 On Friday - Go Fly A Kite




Go Fly Five Kites

On this day in history in 1752, Benjamin Franklin got the bright idea of flying a kite in raging lightening storm and not only survived this challenge to Darwin's theory but ended up inventing the Lightening Rod.  Since he was successful with one toy, I thought five more might be in order.

I really enjoyed Yo Yo Man! This was a great, whimsical set. You made me smile!

Have a wonderful weekend Jamie.

LOL!

GREAT idea for a set, Jamie. I admit to a fondness for 'Hula Hoop'.

NO "Let's Go Fly a Kite" from Mary Poppins? :( :D

I really wanted Amanda McBroom's "Make Me A Kite" and it's not on You Tube anymore, but "Let's Go Fly A Kite" would have been a great substitute.

By Unanimous request Let's Go Fly A Kite from Mary Poppins

I was always fascinated by the way Tommy Smothers could yo-yo. I was never any good at it myself, although I did try.

Love this Set and the idea behind it!

I was thinking the exact same thing as Faire as the moment I saw the title of your post I started humming that tune! Glad to see that you added it in comments for those of us that couldn't get it out of our heads!
