12 Ft. Super Sturdy Parachute
Bought two, love the parachutes but handles ripped almost immediately on both.
Handles ripped off after first use on both items.

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.

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.

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.

Parachute was used at pre-school play day. Each child also received a beach ball with their name on it. All the balls were bounced on the parachute.

Broke just after taking it out of the bag!
I can't even express my disappointment! I took this out, kids super excited and the first time we lifted it, one of the handles completely ripped off!! Yes, we can use it without the handles but with smaller kids, they can hold on better with them! I will be sending this back!

I own an entertainment business and we use this parachute to play games at birthday parties. I love everything about it except for the handles. A few ripped off the first time that we used them. We will have to get them stitched on again. Besides the handles, the overall quality of the parachute is great. We will be buying more.

Good with 1 minor flaw
I purchased this item for an activity w/ young girls. In their exuberance, the handles frayed off quite quickly. Something I can fix with different material, but others may not be able to fix it. Over all the product was good. The chute is still in good shape.

Worked well for our end of year activities
We bought these parachutes to use at our annual year end elementary field day. We have about 1300 students, K-5, so the parachutes get a lot of use over 2 days. The kids love using the parachutes. The size was great for K-2 grade, but the bigger parachutes would have been better for 3-5th grades. The handles ripped off right away, but it didn't seem to bother the students. They work perfect for our once a year outdoor activity.

kids loved it!
I bought this to use for birthday parties and for church games and activities. It has been a big hit wherever I bring it. I took the advice of other reviews and glued the handle areas prior to use. One of the handles was already loose when I took it out of the bag. I glued the handle areas ( I used Gorilla Glue 'cause that's what I had available) and let it set up overnight. It has taken some abuse and held up well. Very pleased with this product.
