According to Diango, a huge shipment of dragon kites was ordered exactly one year ago but was delayed, leading him to believe that they were never going to arrive and that someone was playing a joke on him. He also explains, when asked how he got so many, that there was an offer of 'Buy 1, Get 1000 free' which Diango felt was too good of an offer to pass up. He refers to the price as a bargain and when purchased, cautions players not to "get carried away!" On 9 November, toy kites were prevented from floating away while playing Vinesweeper.
Upon its release, the Toy Kite was named "Dragon Kite". This was changed by Jagex to the current name because players would sometimes attempt to scam other players by claiming that the Toy Kite was a Dragon Kiteshield.
The symbol on the kite resembled the old symbol on the Dragon sq Shield.
