Hello, my name is Jack and I love Gayla kites. Specifically, the kites they made in the 60's through the mid 70's. From 1972 to 1977(from age 5 to 10), these kites were an obsession of mine. Since this was just before the dawn of video gaming(Atari), my days were filled with flying and fighting with them or over them. It was really all I could think about. What's crazy is that nearly 40 years later, much of the details about these kites are still etched in my brain. I am now an avid collector of these kites. 
I am hoping to use this blog to establish value and to help determine the year and relative rarity of each of these kites. I have noticed on ebay a lot of misrepresentations of these kites. Specifically the kites packaged from 1975 though the early nineties. This would include the Sky Spy, the Baby Bat, The Gordo, and The Sky Raider. I will include all the ways to date these kites in later blogs.
