Kite Kits In Bulk Quantities

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.
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)...
e-book takes you step-by-step through making a 120cm (4 ft) tall
Parafoil kite. This 4-cell kite performs best in gentle to moderate
wind speeds. That's 12 to 28kph or 8 to 18mph. Even in light
winds, this kite will hang in the air, although at low line angles.
In fresh winds, it pulls firmly for it's size, so small kids
should only fly it while supervised!
Every kite design in
the MBK Soft Series satisfies the following points...
- Materials are
plastic sheet, tape and line – and nothing more!
- Tools are a ruler,
scissors and a marker pen - and nothing more!
- All cuts are
along straight lines.
For the greatest chance
of success, I make recommendations regarding the materials. For
example, the type/weight of plastic, type/width of tape and line
type/strength. Close enough should nearly always be good enough,
since the design is well-tested and should be tolerant of small
differences from my original.
Get the e-book for making the MBK Parafoil kite. After making your first one in plastic and seeing how it performs, you can try soft Tyvek or rip-stop nylon for your next build.
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.

This previously published page is a mixture of informative data and historical background. Also there is also a video of one of my own tetrahedral designs in flight!
