6-Ft. Super Sturdy Parachute
Parachute - great item
I have always wanted to purchase a parachute. Now, that I have it, I know I will use it for my kids at birthday parties or fun activities, for VBS games, for Sunday school games, etc. I love it!

This parachute is perfect for younger children. Purchased for my daycare and even the smallest can play, excellent price for a smart activity that gets the children moving. Kids loved it too.

This is a high quality material well stiched parachute. The colors are vibrant and the kids love the inviting colors. This is an awesome way to allow children to play calm yet still enjoy themselves while engaged in active play. A must have for any home, home daycare, or daycare. You could also use this at birthday parties and family gatherings. Take it from me a parent as well as an educator.

This is very cheaply made the parachute is very very thin material and the handles ripe easily also.. I had this for a group of 2 year olds and it didn't last but one time in use.

One use and 1/2 the straps frayed beyond repair. Poor quality!

I run a children's party company and we frequently use a parachute in our activities. We have been using the large parachute (12 ft?) from OT for over 2 years now and it's held up so well- we are very pleased with it. So, I expected the same from the small parachute for smaller groups. Sadly, in the first use, more than half of the handles came ripping off. Granted we were playing a little rough, but nothing we haven't done with the larger chute. It ruined the activity for the kids and the parents looked unhappy about it. The main "chute" is fine but without the handles, it's kind of useless, and we wont be able to use it again until i get a chance to sit down at a sewing machine and repair it. Overall disappointed. Was hoping to love this product and use it just as much a the larger one.

All but two of the handles fell off the first time we used this, I guess I could sew it back on or superglue it.

Sturdy but flawed
I got this parachute for my home daycare and preschool. It's perfect for a small group of children. It has held up well and appears to be well constructed. My only disappointment was that there was some kind of writing on one of the panels when it arrived. It's faint, but certainly shouldn't have been there.

Handles broke within five minutes
I used this for a classroom party today. We split the class into four groups of five kids and before we were even through the first group the handles had come apart. I'll grant you that the class was mostly boys and they can be rough on things but those handles definitely need reinforcement. I would not recommend this to a friend and would not purchase again.

This product lasted about 3 minutes. The handles came apart on all but 2 handles. I was very disappointed and I wouldn't buy.
