Flight takes many forms on the Outer Banks, from the thousands of migratory birds that travel along these barrier islands to and from their winter destinations, to aviation pioneers like the Wright Brothers who launched the world's first airplane off the sand dunes of Kill Devil Hills. Visitors can also experience the Outer Banks' inherent love of all things aerial by taking flight themselves with a day of Hang Gliding.
Interactive toys for the beach and the beach house can be found at this sherbet green and pink building located at Whalebone Junction. Most of the toys, games, books and crafts sold here are classics that have stood the test of time, maybe with updated materials and a modern twist. For instance, hula hoops are iridescent. Popular brands are in stock, including Melissa and Doug, Playmobil, Usborne & Kane, Miller Books and Manhattan Toy. You can find Frisbees and throwing rings, geyser football, Pirate Poppers and The Spooner Fun Board, not to mention stuffed toys (how about a big dolphin or dragon?), pirate dolls, horse models, jump ropes, fish-y toys, sand toys, a “chef’s center” kitchen, and good ol’ fashioned skipper ball.
