Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RP400 Good Parachute Great Service
I decided to order this parachute for my three girls to play with this summer. They were super excited to get it. Unfortunately when I opened the box I noticed that the parachute had a slice in it (like a box cutter had cut too deep).
I called Oriental Trading and the service from them was AWESOME! Of course they offered to replace it (I was expecting that much) But what really surprised me was they offered to overnight the replacement so I would get it the next day!! And they also included a customer appreciation 'gift' of some chocolate covered pretzels. Very Very impressed with Oriental Trading's Customer Service.
Oh and the parachute is great too ;) I price checked several different sites and for a 20 ft parachute this was the best price I could find. We've only played with it once so far so I can't speak about the durability, but it seems to be well made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by michellesan This made our event!
At the time of this review, Oriental Trading is the only large online company that currently sells and ships play parachutes to FPO addresses. So I ordered the largest sized parachute possible for a USO event that just recently hosted 320 people. While this is not a billowy type of parachute, the colors are vibrant; none of the handles (miraculously) ripped on us, as I was more than prepared to anticipate according to previous reviews; and the adults and children loved it! This parachute totally made our event, especially when we incorporated bouncing beach balls on top of it.

The kids just love this large parachute. We have a smaller one, but this is one was great to have more kids involved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kkesd Was a hit at my camp out and should last for a long time.
Bought for an activity at camp out and kept kids busy for 30 minutes without trying. Probably could have kept going if we didn't have other things to get to. The handles are sturdy and the quality was great. I did a lot of comparison shopping including ebay and you can't beat Oriental Trades price and shipping for guaranteed new quality product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Johnson1980 I used this Parachute 1 time with 20 K - 2nd grade, and it ripped a couple minutes into us using it. The rip occured along the handle attachment.
Used the Parachute with 20 K-2nd graders, and it ripped within a couple minutes of using it. The rip happened where the handle attached to the parachute. Very thin material, quality is lacking.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MaestraM NOT super sturdy
I was excited to get this. i like the size and color. But it is not at all sturdy. The handles have torn off easily, and it was only used a couple times. I returned it once already (great service on return), but disappointed to find the same problem with the new one.

I let my responsible students be in charge when using this product and it held up without me closely watching every move!
