Go fly a Kite!
I have a couple of these Japanese baseball kites that I bought a few months back. They are pretty cool. I think the players are generic but they are quite colorful.
one of them for sale on Ebay but he doesn't seem to know too much about them either.
They are quite small for kites, way too small to be flown (or at least flown higher than a couple metres). Also the paper is very fragile so I doubt they would survive long in the wind even if they were big enough. They do make cool display pieces though. The lot I bought included the above two baseball player ones and a Santa Clause one.
Flying kites I should note is a traditional new years activity in Japan, the winter is when you get the best wind here. We got kites (real kites!) for our kids for New Year and took them to the park a few days ago, they got theirs up pretty high!
I've seen a few other baseball kites out there but I think my collection will be "full" with these two!
