Hello All,

Is there a catalog anywhere of  the white bird kites that were produced?

I would like to know where my kites fit in to their "production".

TIA,
Don Tuff

Rob and Steve,

Thanks for the reply, I have emailed her (whose name goes unspoken) in hopes there remains a list etc that is copyable. 

Anyone else, please chime in.

As a follow up, She, whose name we did not mention,  has the White Bird lists fron 98,99,2001and 2002.  I will make copies and pdfs of them so they will be available when needed.

 She, whose name we did not mention, ROCKS!!

I fully appreciate the ability of trees to attract kites. They have special powers that way.

Hi All,
I have the wholesale sheets from 98,99,2001, and 02.  the sheets with all the color pictures appear to be fron 2002 and they cover all the new kites they announced in the prior years.  I will pdf the 2002 wholesale price list anf the 2 sheets of color pictures. This should give us a pretty good idea of what they were selling prior to the split up in 2003.  I haven't decided wheither to pdf the letter sent in 2003 abt the split up.  It will take me a few days to get it all done, but we'll have it as a source.

Thanks for the scans Don!

Man, I'd love to have a big White Bird dragon some day. My 25' sun face dragon was the Very first kite I bought from GWTW 13 years ago.

Thank you so much for the scans.  Somehow I've got to find those kites made after 9/11.  I've been searching for the dragon kites and have managed to get several of them.  Not having to much luck finding the diamonds.

Thank you again.
