Flyte and Barker was a broomstick manufacturing company. They released the Twigger 90 in 1990.[1]

Etymology

Flight and Barker is posibly play on words on flight embarker, or someone who embarks on a flight.  Flyte is obviously a play on the word "flight", while "barker" refers to the bark on a tree, which talks about the materials that a broomstick is made from. It is also possibly a play on the phrase "barking mad", since the Twigger 90 was thought to be a broom for those "with more Galleons than sense." It may also be that there is some element of the carnival "barker", whose job was to talk up the attractions of a fair or circus and incite the public to pay to see them.
