20 Ft. Super Sturdy Parachute
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.

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.

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!

3 of the straps broke on first use
Three of the straps broke on first use. We then started to inspect the other straps and realized they were about to fall apart. It's as if the strap fabric was old and brittle. Pretty useless without the straps! I guess you get what you pay for...cheap = bad quality

My kindergarteners LOVED this!
I bought this for my kindergarten class. They loved the parachute activities! One of the handles ripped on the first use. However, with 27 kids, there are not enough handles anyway. They just held on to the edge.

Good purchase for the price.
The parachute was a hit for my end of the year fun with preschoolers but some of the handles tore loose after shortly using it. We reinforce them. Good price but you need to use better material for the handles.
