Old Fashion Flying Machine-Wood Propeller

 

Hold the stick between your hands, push one hand away from your body, and send the propeller flying through the air. Fun for kids of all ages.
 
This toy is possibly the world's oldest flying toy! Over 2,000 years ago, the Chinese invented a toy of this type called the "Chinese Top," which consisted of a propeller attached to a stick. A helicopter-type flying toy of this kind was given to the Wright brothers by their father, and they became fascinated with the idea of flying. Now known as a hand propeller or helicopter, kids love to play with this simple toy at family gatherings and birthday parties. 

Spin it between your hands and watch it soar!

Adult supervision is suggested for young children.
