Big Hit - Lots of fun
We bought these for prizes at our carnival-type games during our Easter event and the kids loved them. Many children chose several over picking other prizes available.
Only a few had structural issues that I know of. I will definitely consider getting these again for next year.
One note: I didn't pay enough attention to the size on this product like I normally do. These are quite small.
But a lot of fun for an amazing price.

they were ok
I took one out, threw it off the deck and it floated -- that's the good news -- when I retrieved it the strings were broken... so, didn't last very long...

Fun item to have available for little guests.
I used to use these in my classroom for incentives, science, parties, etc. They are nice to have available if little guests come by to visit our home, too. They can be tossed into the air to drift down or dropped from our balcony. Although, the parents can usually launch them high enough that they get quite a long ride back to Earth!

We bought these to sell at our school store. The kids love them, however to be honest the parachute is a little weak. After just a couple throws they seem to be tearing a little more than I would anticipate. The price is good or I would have really gave it a bad rating due to I guess you get what you pay for :)

We are holding an Egg Hunt at work for the Associates; I needed toys that would fit in a plastic egg along with some candy. I also needed toys that the males would find fun, it¿¿¿s surprising how creative adults can be with toys. They are small, so I wouldn¿¿¿t suggest this product for small children.

The paratroopers were so small that kids got bored quickly because they did not work well.

Often, when these guys are that cheap. they need to be tied together (which is a real pain). These are a great deal.

These are cute, however, they are VERY small.

These don't launch very far. The boys took off the parachute but they still didn't go far. There is no paratrooper. I guess the bullet is the paratrooper. Boys ended up shooting each other at close range and using the blue plastic as swords. No one wanted theirs after they were done playing. Threw them away after the party. If you don't mind the price for 1/2 hour of fun, they buy them.
