The kite is believed to have originated in China. Since its invention, there have been many adaptations to the kite by various cultures around the world. The kite you probably flew as a kid looks a bit different to the original Chinese kites and even the kites of modern China.

The Chinese have been flying kites for nearly three thousand years. It was invented by two 5th century BC philosophers, Lu Ban and Mozi, in China.
