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 is a company 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. The company claims that "Absolutely no additional materials are needed for assembly."

The Canadian Kite Company offer a simple but durable Sled kite design.

Price: $7.00 each (much cheaper in bulk)
Size: Seems about 50 cm (18") tall from the photo.
Sail Material: Tyvek (tear proof and water proof)
Kit Contents:

  • pre-cut tape
  • pre-cut spars
  • pre-cut sails
  • flying line on plastic winder
  • easy to follow directions


Hope this helps in your quest for kite kits in bulk!

FREE E-Book!

I'm referring to Simplest Dowel Kites, my popular kite-making download. It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamond, delta or sled. Each kite is capable of flying hundreds of feet up for hours on end.

Could you do me just a small favor though?
