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.

Took this on a mission trip with our teens to Puerto Rico. This was a phenomenal product. Even with a language barrier when working with the children, we were able to communicate with them how to play the games. Lots of smiles and tons of fun!!

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.

Everybody laughed the whole time we played!

You get what you pay for
I bought this product to take with me on a mission trip. The handles lasted about five minutes before coming off. The children enjoyed the parachute even without the handles.

Really thick material. Sturdy
Great quality parachute. Terrible quality on the handles. After 1 use, 4 of them ripped off (just the handle). I sewed them back on, reinforced all of them and doubled the number of handles so there's less stress on each one. love it now, but I shouldn't have had to fix it myself.

Lots of fun, slightly disappointing
I bought this parachute for our end of the year party for preschool. I took it out a few days before and used it with my kids and niece and nephews. Within the first minute, a handle ripped off. Followed by another and another. We decided just to hold onto the edges. We had a great time with it but I was a little disappointed. However, given the price, I would buy again and recommend it.
