Featuring rounded edges instead of the typical diamond shape, this kite is inspired by an 18th-century painting of a group of young boys trying to rescue their kite from a tree. Appearing almost identical to the piece of art, this airborne toy is the perfect gift for a young history enthusiast. Hardly a modern novelty, the kite was often used in the colonial period for scientific purposes such as when Ben Franklin famously proved that lightning was electricity by tying a key to a kite.
