In Weifang of Shandong Province, the kite, more than just toys, is also a cultural symbol of the city. Boasting 2,400 years of kite flying history, Weifang is known as "the city of kite". Legend has it that ancient Chinese philosopher Mo-tse spent three years in Weifang to produce the world's first kite, but the kite fell and broke on the first day of flying. Some people believed that the Chinese kite was invented by the ancient carpenter Luban. It is said that his kite, made of wood and bamboo, has flown three days before landing.
