Batman's Workshop: The Bat-Kite

After the Batmobile, Batarang, and Bat-handkerchief, are you surprised there's a Bat-Kite? There is, and Batman shows you how to make your own:
From Batman Family #261 (March-April 1975)

It's so nice to know that Batman uses his down-time, to go into his little workshop and make toys.

Which certainly beats being so...obsessive all the time!

Tooling around in your workshop is its own kind of obsession.

Isn't it kind of creepy to invite kids you've never met into your workshop to build kites? :-P

He's likely to make you his sidekick!

I made this one with the help of my dad at a kid. I saw the ad in one of the DC treasures and even got a scouting badge for my efforts. Cool memory.

Weird! The Batman part is an original illo, but the Bat-Kite comes from an old Superboy's Workshop segment from his eponymous title. Nice re-use of old stock material!

Siskoid said...

That is weird, especially given the kit's batty shape.

Here we go, a selection of 'em I posted a ways back - Batman also left out the airport birdhouse...

So still a "Bat-Kite" even though Superboy introduces it. Weird.
