Dec 26, 2014
Of the many things we are proud of at the Great Canadian Kite Company. we take pride that we can compete well with often larger US kite retailers.

Cruising in on the big day! Christmas day is 8 days away and yes, there is still time to get that special something delivered on time for Christmas morning to most parts of the country using Xpress Post! As you may appreciate the elves here at the Great Canadian Kite Company have been packing and shipping kites at a fevered pace. With each box that is packed and picked up for delivery, I keep thinking about each name I see on each box.
