Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sharforisrael The children love playing with it in Kenya.
This is the second parachute I have purchased from Oriental Trading. Both times I have received my shipments fast, accurate and the quality of merchandise was good. I and my teammates, who travel together on mission trips will also purchase our needs, when possible from Oriental Trading.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hwillnow Material great, hanles poor
I used it for the first time a couple weeks ago. The children aged from 4 years old to 12. The handles came apart after a few minutes. You can not beat rip-stop nylon for this purpose but the handles were very poorly sewn on. That is why I gave it a 3. I am now going to look for some leather material to make handles, but why?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Crazyaboutkids Sewing needed
Handles broke after the first use from 3 year olds - kindergartners. I had to get someone to see the handles back on which resulted in wasted time that the children could not enjoy playing with the parachute. If you purchase this item, you may also need a sewing machine for your repairs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GirlScoutsRock Worst Purchase EVER
I bought this for my girl scouts troop and the first day we used it 8 of the handles ripped off. I was so disappointed since we couldn't finish the teamwork game. I had high hopes for this

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MaestraM torn handles on first use
The name Super Sturdy is absolutely not true. The handles started tearing off on the first use. This is my 2nd one. I already returned one for same reason.

Most of the handles came unattached the first time we used this!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Priddy1972 Price was nice!
The price was nice. After just one use, many of the handles broke from the fabric. We will still use the parachute.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RevCandy Not that great
If you only need this for a one or two time use then certainly purchase it. The handles come off the very first time is used so if you purchase to use DO NOT USE HANDLES. The parachute itself stayed together though the whole week of VBS but my overall rating for this is it is not STURDY as advertised.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by stirrell Good size, not sturdy though
I ordered this for a birthday party. It fits 12 kids, and they had fun playing with it, but after one use (maybe 30 minutes) two of the handles had ripped. It's still usable, but rather annoying that it started falling apart so quickly.
