Kite Kits In Bulk Quantities

Q:

This is Lauren Potts from POP! Toy and Party Services. We are an event planning company that plans a lot of corporate events throughout the year, including summer picnic and holiday parties. We do a lot of activities and crafts with the children at these events and thought that kite making would be a hit at a summer picnic for the children.

We were interested in large quantities and would like to be quoted on different amounts. We would like a quote for 200 kits, 500 kits, 1000 kits.

A:

Firstly, I'm based in Adelaide, South Australia. Plus, at this writing, we don't ship any hard goods at all. Let alone kite kits :-)

However, there are a couple of companies in Canada that could possibly help you out with kite kits in bulk. Their idea of 'bulk' is more like 20 kites, but I think they would love a much bigger order! Their kites appear to be very sound, and are plain to allow the kids to do their own decoration. Both companies claim "Absolutely no additional materials are needed for assembly."

E-book special of the month (25% off)...


The
Sode is a traditional Japanese design, and this MBK version is exciting to watch in rough air!

If you have made Diamonds before, this kite takes a little more time to make. It's still a straight-forward build though, using the same techniques as used for my Dowel Diamond. 

Get the e-book for making the MBK Dowel Sode kite. The cambered sail makes this a very efficient design. Of the Dowel kites, this design is one of my personal favorites!

This Sode flies steep and steady over the Light wind range, and starts to move around quite a bit when the wind picks up to Moderate levels. Tail(s) are entirely optional, but may be added for looks.

The e-book is a PDF file - which means printable instructions to refer to while you make the kite. It also means convenient off-line access if that suits you better.

"30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.

 Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
