When a store window full of colourful novelty kites excites the cubs about entering a kite-flying contest, Brother and Sister are surprised when Papa suggests they build their own kite instead of buying one. Together Papa and the cubs build a big old style kite, which turns out to be too big to fly without an equally big wind. Regardless, instead of buying a store bought kite for the contest like all the other cubs, Brother and Sister decide to take their chances on 'Big Red'. To them, it's no longer about winning or losing; it's about taking pride in something they've made. They just want to see Big Red fly. As luck would have it, the wind picks up and, as all the store bought kites crash to the ground, Big Red flies so high, all the contestants join in and have a great time flying it.
