The Strong National Museum of Play

Since the Wright Brothers first took flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903, Americans have been fascinated with flight. Card games, board games, toys, books, movies, and other means of entertainment popularized the adventure, the romance, and the heroism of manned flight. Charles Lindbergh's trans-Atlantic flight and the hundreds of barnstormers that entertained appreciative crowds in each American town put a dashing face on the endeavor and gave young boys everywhere someone to emulate. Easy to assemble plane models became a favorite toy of future pilots and aces.
