I have been dealing with the owner at Chicago Kite for 12 years or so, starting at his original location in Chicago. Since moving to Oak Park, the shop has become even better.

My interest is in the high tech stunt kites, but the shop has an endless variety of toys for kids and adults; beginner level kites, flags, banners, Radio Control models etc. etc. plus a full range of Yo-Yos (this has become a major sport ). Prices cover the full range from quick gift toys to really profesional grade Kites.

Kites range from the simple and inexpensive to the Pro grade which are well worth their significant cost, if you select the right kite for your needs. This is where some explanation and advice is invaluable, and he is an expert at reading the customer's interest and skill level and matching them to the right kite. You can make a mistake by going too cheap as well as too expensive.

Don't just take my word, stop in and see this amazing shop and talk to them.

PROS: Full range of toys. Only shop in the area for top grade Kites and advice.
CONS: None.

Trying to fly a kite is a rite of childhood. We all had to pass that test, didn't we? These days, instead of getting little plastic kites from the convenience store, they've got much more elaborate offerings. This is a unique store in that they've got so many kites to choose from. You can go from basic to fancy, with corresponding price ranges. Check it out!

I definately recommend this place for kite flyers of all ages! It is an excellent place to go for beginning and expert kite flyers. I took my son in here after viewing these sellers at a festival and was totally impressed with their customer service, knowledge and all around guarantees of their products! cALL BEFORE YOU GO!

I needed to buy a kite from this store for a birthday present and I called the store to find out their business hours. I was told that they operated from 10am to 6pm on the weekdays. So on Tuesday I went there at 11.45am and the store was closed with a sign saying that he would be back in 15 minutes. 1 hour later I was still waiting and decided to give up. I called again to let him know this and he rudely stated that he would be there from 10am to 6pm the next day. I decided to go out of my way on Wednesday morning at 10am before my daughter doctors appointment to get the kite. At 10.30am, I and other people were still waiting outside (in the stinking heat) for the store to open. i had to give up to make it to my daughters appointment on time. I was really upset because not only didnt he keep his opening hours that he had stated, but I had stood out in the blistering heat with my 6 month old daughter for 1/2 hour waitng for this lazy proprietor. When I aired my views to him via a telephone call, he didnt care. To get the kite I wanted I ordered through the manufacturer that actually makes them and he knew of this business. He told me that he refuses to have any more business dealings with this guy because of how lazy and incompetent in running his business and business hours he is.

PROS:
CONS: STAY AWAY FROM THIS STORE - THE OWNER IS LAZY AND NEVER THERE

I decided for my nephews birthday to get him something other than computer games or games for his x-box. I thought a cool kite would be something that would get him outdoors but be heaps of fun. I searched for a good kite store and found this one located in Oak Park. I was not disappointed when I went into the store. The range of their kites is unbelievable with everything for either a beginner or an expert kite flyer. I got him one of their stunt kites in the shape of a fighter jet in the US Flag colors and he loves it. It does all the tricks but is easy enough as he is a beginner. The other products in their store are fun to look at and I almost purchased some for me. Their prices are somewhat reasonable, but their higher end kites are pretty expensive and really are only for adult kite flyers.

PROS: AWESOME KITES AND PRODUCTS
CONS: A LITTLE PRICEY
