Description: The "Sky Surfer" is a hang glider (kite) for an Adventure Series figure. The hang glider has a 5-foot cloth wingspan that attached to a black snap together frame. The glider has a long cord which is used to 'launch' the glider into flight. The hang glider has a hanging harness for the accessory Adventure Series figure.

This short-lived playset was recalled from the market almost immediately since the kite does not fly very well.
Accessories:
  • FPT1681 - Large nylon kite ("Sky Surfer" hang glider) with a 5-foot wingspan. With wingspan open, the kite has a white center, red/yellow/orange stripes. The kite has a black plastic snap-together frame. *See "Variations" below.
