My kids got these little planes at the local bowling alley as prizes for the gaming area. They are cute and fly really well, but when we brought home a stash of over 10 I had a thought. Well a thought besides, "Great, I'll be taking all these destroyed planes out of the mouth of the dog." What if we hung them in a grouping for a mobile.
A few months later with a new set of planes, my youngest and I got to work. I did in fact remove several from the dogs mouth from the previous set. This was so easy to do, and would be really cool in a boys room by the window. Ours are a corner of our studio. We took some fishing line cut at various lengths, punched a little hole in the top of the plane and tied the line there and then I tied a knot around a white thumbtack and stuck in the ceiling.
The kitten is fascinated by it! Everyone in the family loves to walk by them and see them move.
