Balsa Wood Gliders (Guillow)
We loved these airplane gliders when we were kids they are amazingly light, easy-to-construct, and most importantly, they fly really well! Each consists of a few simple pieces that slot together, and then they're ready to fly! Jetfire gliders are more basic, consisting of a body, nose-clip, wings, and a tail; while the Sky Streak is a bit more complex (and fun to fly) with a wind-up propeller. Most planes have about a 12" wingspan, are ready to fly in seconds, and are made of thin balsa wood sheets that can be decorated any way you like! Balsa wood does break easily, so parental supervision or help may prevent breakage.
