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!!

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.

Worth Every Penny
Made this purchase to use with our youth at church on our game nights and other fun occasions. We were all very delighted in its quality and timely delivery. Their happy little smiles and giggles made it worth every penny. Oriental Trading had the best price I found on the internet and with the coupon and free shipping there were no others who could match it. Very Pleased!!

Good for the price - not enough handles
I bought this for my preschool. The price was good but there are not enough handles. For a parachute that is as large as this one, there should be more handles. Checked other suppliers and they are more expensive but they do have the amount of handles needed for a preschool class to fit around.

Perfect for 20 kindergarteners to play with at the end of year party! Would love to have a carrying bag for it though
