BioKite Brings Japanese Kite Craze To U.S. Just in Time for Father's Day and Summer Kick-Off; First Collectible 'Kites on a Fishing Pole' Now Offered in U.S. Online

LONG BEACH, Calif.--()--May 28, 2003--BioKite, maker of the world's most technologically advanced kites, today announced the availability of its first two US-distributed specialty kites. The technology driven kites that created such a sensation in Japan are now available from its US website, www.biokiteworld.com. The kites are actually launched and operated from a short fishing pole device, making them the perfect and unique gift for Father's Day and summer family outings.

"The kites are a huge hit in Japan," said Dean McCune, product manager for BioKite. "The kids quickly adopted them as collectable items as well as a fun and healthy way to spend outdoor time with family and school friends."

BioKites are designed by a Japanese dad and engineer and, unlike typical kites, use aerodynamic principles to create lift and eliminate air resistance. So, BioKites can fly in light winds and immediately go upwards, which means anyone can fly them, even city flyers with access only to smaller open urban areas and parks.

BioKite honors the bond between science and nature by applying aeronautic technology to amazingly life-like and life-sized kites shaped like animals, birds and butterflies. To celebrate summer and Father's Day, the company offers its easiest-to-fly Seagull and Falcon models, with advanced designs to be added to the line later.
