Kite Pins - Lots of Them!

We've decided to keep the collection intact. More thgan 3000 pieces plus all our several hundred "doubles". We paid an average of $5 per pin back when. We'll sell them all now for $1600 and shipping.

Centipede

Chinese Opera Mask Centipede

I came across this centipede on one of my last trips to Weifang and had never seen anything like it. The head is an opera mask character with a flowing black beard. The 40 cells each have a different hand-painted opera mask character. Pretty cool!

Most Chinese centipedes feature a dragon head multiple cells. They take some practice to fly, but make a real impact.

This collectible needs to go. Dragons this size are about $100 so we'll ask $150 plus shipping. If you've seen one like this before, let us know and we'll lower the price.

Kite Trains

Here's another grand idea I never got around to. An infinite kite train that stretched forever into the sky.

I have two cartons of these plastic kites. They are each about a foot tall with bamboo frames, tails and a reinforced eyelet.

All you need to do is thread a flying line through, add stoppers (a tag gun works really well and launch a show that will gather a crowd in seconds.

Kites come in red/orange/yellow/green/blue/purple. We'll sell them in sets of 120 kites - twenty each color - for $150 plus shipping. Order more than one and really impress your friends!

Dragon

Dragon

Multi-Function Chinese Dragon:

This is a treasure I brought back from Weifang in 1989. It was an award winning kite then and I was fascinated with the mechanics and hand crafted gears that were powered by the wind to move the eyes, eyelids, jaw, and tongue.

Click here to see a movie.

While the kite has not been flown, it has been on display in my office. It is 30 years old and a bit fragile.,

This remarkable kite was made by Zhang Tianwei who hails from China’s northwestern city Xian. You can learn more about him here.

Complete with body cells and a solid crafted packing box. Add it to your collection or send to your favorite museum for $750. That’s what I paid for in in 1989.

Charlie was a treasure. And he was an exceptional maker of tiny kites.

Our own treasure drawer contains six small Charlie Kites. We'll also include two of the flying wands he used to pilot them.

We've seen his kites go for hundreds at auction and sadly, he isn't making any more. We'll accept $100 for the collection.

Long Feather Banners

Once upon a time, long ago, I had the idea to create a forest of banners. And I had a kite factory so making them was easy! But I never got around to tweaking the poles with long, flexible ends. So now I have 100 banner sails in a box.

To finish the job, you'll need telescopic poles and add four or five feet of quarter or eighth inch rod to the end so they bend over smoothly in the wind.

Banners come in red/orange/yellow/green/blue/purple. We'll sell them in sets of 12 - two each color - for $150 plus shipping.

  • 12 banner - two each color: $150 plus shipping.

Spikey Wheels

I brought these back from Germany and always enjoyed them. Dramatic pairs of spiked wheels, about four feet tall, that rotate against each other like gears. Anchor them to the ground or lift them into the air.

I'll admit these originals are a bit musty and haven't seen a beach in a bit. But they have plenty of life left! We used to make a version for $175 each. So here's a good deal for you.

  • two white/black : $125 plus shipping.

Made by our G-Kite production company, this interesting inflatable is about four by six feet. Completely soft. Completely safe. Completely fun!

School of Idol Inflatables

A string of Idols makes a wonderful impact in the sky. I like to arrange them randomly on three flying lines leading to a lifter. Lock in the bridle and then let the top line slide free. Big impact with little effort. And they take strong winds well which allows to to perform when larger pieces have to stay in the bag.

I have a set of more than 20. As I've said before, well loved but undamaged. We sold them new for $100 each. How abot $800 for the whole bag?

Idol School

Caterpillar: Now the first thing you notice about this ground bouncer is the size of it. It is big. I mean REALLY BIG! Think of a school bus parked inside. It stretches 60 feet long and 15 feet tall. The other thing you quickly discover is that she is designed with nothing for children to grab hold of. If you fly big kites, you know this is significant.

We're selling our big red/orange/black. Well used. Well loved. No damage.

    Skyform and Tail

    Skyform 250 and Tail:

    You already know what I'm talking about. This is the standard Skyform 250 and 100 foot Giant Streamer set that has painted the ceiling above local kite festivals for decades. There was a time when you could get the kite for $800 and the matching tail for another $160.

    I've used mine. But I don't have plans to use them much again. Time for someone else to have a turn. Buy one used and cheap, and soon you'll be looking for more!

    • purple/black kite and tail: $400 plus shipping.
    • yellow/black kite and tail: $400 plus shipping.

    This is a staple, go-to kite but I haven't had time to go to them lately. That's an opportunity for you. They sold new for about $600. Priced to fly at $275.

    Delta Conyne 12 Stack: The "DC" is a high flying lifter that soars on the lightest breezes. They are specially designed so you can connect several together in a "kite train". Just pass the flying line through the open center and tie it to the next kite's bridle point at ten foot intervals.

    Each kite is 8 feet wide and 3.5 feet tall. We used to sell them for $44 each.

    I have a set of 6 - one each - in rainbow colors. Never flown. We'd like $200 for the set plus shipping.

    Rok Show
    Two StarBurst 3-packs: When we first discovered maneuverable kites back in the Seventies, they were diamond shaped. "Stunters" came with long flowing tails, pulled hard, and roared around the sky. Flying those kites changed our lives. The Starburst harkens back to those early physical flying days. It won't do axels, flips, or fades. But it will put a huge smile on your face as you drive it through the wind.

    Each Starburst is 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. A matching 45 foot tail is included. They sold for $50 each new.

    We've got two sets of three kites. Fly in pairs as I did, or add them together for a six-stack. $150 plus shipping.

    Sky Lanterns:

    We call them “lanterns” because of the shape. But these are really kinetic sculptures that rotate in a light breeze creating a whirl of color and movement. We made five designs, the Generator, Piroete, Dervish, DNA, and Corkscrew.

    Kinetic sky sculptures are designed by kite artist Robert Brasington of Tasmania. “All are just fine on a kite line”, he says. “But over the years, I have found the best way to display lanterns is on a pole. I normally put them out first thing in the morning and then they are the last thing to come home at night. They are always active, instant color and a must for any kind of fun event!”

    Generator DNA Corkscrew Pirotte Dervish

    I've got a bag full that were used for a display in our warehouse. Never seen the sun or sand. They sold for $60 each. We'll send you three for $100 in assorted shapes and colors. Shipping, unfortunately, is extra.

    Folding Flake

    This remarkable cellular kite is a breakthrough in fun flight engineering. Nothing to assemble. No loose parts to lose. Just unfold the sail, connect the Velcro fastener, and toss it into the air! Click here for a folding photo.

    Designed by Robert Brasington of Tasmania, the Folding flake is a six wing facet kite. Hold the flying line steady and it will float smoothly and gracefully. Tug gently on the line and the kite will dance and swirl playfully in the breeze.Click here for a flying photo.

    Folding Flake

    Folding Flake

    We offer four color choices and two sizes.

    Poppers - Set of Six:

    I sold line laundry for thirty years. We made a lot of cool stuff. But Poppers were the best!

    These line climbers were originally called “bumpershoots” because they looked like umbrellas. I changed the name after the sharp popping noise they made as one hit another going up and down the line.

    Here’s how they work. Poppers are threaded onto your flying line. Send one up. Give it a moment and then send another. And then another. When the first Popper reaches the kite, the wind collapses it and it comes sliding down the line. It reaches the next one and with a “pop”, it collapses too! With enough line and good hands, you can send up half a dozen! They come down fast, but if you shake the line at the last minute, it slows and stops the whole bunch and you look really really good…

    Poppers

    Check out a video here.

    Kitemaster Pete Rondeau was making these for me. But when he couldn’t keep up with demand, Premier began making them. They sold theirs for $42 each. Pete’s were made in solid colors and quite honestly, better than the production model. So this set is red, orange, yellow, green, blue purple.

    They are used but I’ll include our black dacron line and a wooden line winder for $125 plus shipping. All you need is a kite and some wind!

    Bomber

    Big Inflatable Airplane:

    Are you a bomber pilot? Stake this big boy out on the field and you'll have air superiority!

    Our Big Inflatable Airplane can be flown dual-line but it really works much better tethered to the ground on two anchor points.

    We made one prototype and really enjoyed it. The piece was designed to sell at $950. You can take off for half that -- $475 - plus shipping.

    Kabuki Roks: Back in 1994, we commissioned a series of very special rokkakus based on a series of traditional Japanese kite images. I selected the graphics from history, literature, and folklore. But more importantly, I chose illustrations typically used on rokkakus. They are still the most visual and appealing roks I've ever seen.

    We have a set of eight distinctive kites. Each is 7.5 feet tall and made from vibrant ripstop. This set was made for display with lightweight frames. Never flown. For moderate winds, you may want to beef up the spars..

    A limited number of kites were sold 20 years ago for $500 each. We will send you the entire set of eight for $1200 plus shipping.

    How much is left? Don't know. The roll is about two inches thick.

    Ripstop liike this sells for anout $10 a yard. I figure there may be 20 yards. We're asking $100 plus shipping. And if there is less than twelve yards, we'll refund you $15 for every yard you are shorted.

    this is heavy and long, so picking up will save you a bunch on postage.

    Spikey Bouncers: They are weird, exotic, and very cool. Oh -- and very big!

    The basic design is a solid color 18 foot ball with black spikes and a black and white striped opening. Note that they do not fly. Instead you anchor them well on a ten foot a tether line and leave them down where people can get a good, close look.

    Here's something completely different -- People Socks -- with wide eyes, flapping arms, and huge, huge grins on their faces. We call them Flying Friends. But unlike our many other friends, these guys never grumble about being stuffed in a kite bag.

    We have a pair of twenty-foot Friend Socks. We used to sell them for $210 each. But we'll part with this used pair for $150 - plus shipping.

    Centipede:

    Better grab this one before I change my mind.

    Fifty feet of fun! Black and white body - rainbow fins - forked tail.

    Always drew attention when I flew it and no one else had anything like it!

    We used to sell these for $600. But I'll part with mine for $300.

    Spikey Wheels:

    It is hard to say goodbye to your fitrst love. But sometimes you need to let go

    These big spinning wheels were definitely one of my first big kite loves. They were made in Germany and introduced to the USA at the EPCOT kite festival back in ... well, back when we were all younger.

    Four pieces. Great shape. Need to see some sky and fresh air. How about $1200 for the big bag.

    20 foot Inflatable Airplane:

    I don't have a good photo. So use ytour imagination.

    This is an inflatable airplane crafted by Rolf Sturm many years ago. Ten foot wingspan. Flyable. Steerable. And piloted by a familiar white dog.

    Dusty but durable. And I can let it go for $125.

    Streamers

    Big Streamer Set:

    We created this set of streamers and took it to France. The next year, we found it featured on a festival post card!

    If you are looking to loft a wall of fabric, this is the ticket. Fifteen lightweight taffeta streamers, 75 feet each, sewn to a tether for easy management and attachment to your main flying line.

    Dusty but not daunted. Well used. Well loved. No damage. From my sky to your sky for $150 plus shipping.

    Japanese Painted Kite Skin

    Some years ago, we acquired this kite sail on one of our trips to Japan. Loved it. But never knew that to do with it. Hang on a wall. Display as Japanese art? Frame it and fly it. Instead it waited in a drawer for you...

    Hand painted on washi paper. Measures 6 by 4 feet. We think $150 is a fair price.

    Gomberg Kite Productions and G-Kites Closed in 2020.

    What a remarkable ride!

    We incorporated in 1987. We have traveled the world, visited more than 50 countries, and attended a thousand festivals. We brought the newest and most interesting kite designs to the market. We flew for motion pictures, Walt Disney, the Super Bowl, and the London Millennium Celebration. We unveiled our first web page in 1996, published 600 weekly updates of news and travel, wrote four books, and opened three kite stores. We were president of the AKA an unprecedented ten times and led the Kite Trade Association three terms. We have been inducted into the Kite Hall of Fame (next to Ben Franklin and the Wright Brothers!) and were presented the lifetime achievement Edeiken Award – twice (the second time we declined it which has never been done before or since). We’ve spent a lifetime spreading the joys of kiting, kite knowledge, and kite friendships.

    After 33 great years – we are ready for new adventures.

    We value each of you and our long association and friendship. Thanks so much for being part of our lives and making our business something special. Keep flying! Keep smiling up at the sky. And keep spreading the joy.

    Good winds!
    David and Susan
