A Toy Inspired the Wright Brothers



"According to brothers, Wilbur and Orville Wright…it began for them with a toy from France, a small helicopter brought home by their father, Bishop Milton Wright, a great believer in the educational value of toys…It was little more than a stick with twin propellers and twisted rubber bands, and probably cost 50 cents.  'Look here, boys,' said the Bishop, something concealed in his hands.  When he let it go it flew to the ceiling."

Great parents and great toys can make history happen.
