The Pacific Play Tents 10ft "Playchute" Parachute is perfect for any children's event. Great for birthday parties, picnics, community events and more. Simply un-fold the parachute from the provided carry-bag and let the fun begin. Sturdy handles along the edges allow children to easily grip the edge.

Tons of Parachute Game Options

There are many possible games with a parachute. A few are: Popcorn - place small balls in the parachute and shake to make them jump around like popcorn. Making Waves - make small, medium or large waves across the parachute. Merry-Go-Round - Hold one handle and walk in a circle. Switch - Call out a birthday month, age or a pre-assigned color and have children swap places under the parachute before it falls. Any Many More!

The imagination is the limit

A parachute can also make a great fort by draping it over furniture, use it as a large picnic blanket, make it home base for tag or simply hide under it. Made of flame-retardant 70 denier polyester, simply machine wash under delicate with mild soap and air dry at the end of the day to get it clean again and ready for the next day.

Develop Life Skills

The "Playchute" Parachutes encourages non-competitive, cooperative play while helping to build muscles. Children must work together to create waves, bounce balls, and raise or lower the parachute. Parachute play develops perceptual, cognitive, motor and academic skills while being amazing fun. They are common play equipment used in schools, clubs and other organizations.

The parachute gambit is a teacher's secret weapon--a tried-and-true way to annihilate the afternoon blahs. At approximately 9 feet in diameter, with handles all the way around for little (or big) hands to grab, this sunny Playchute Parachute is just smaller than the classroom standard. Fling it into the air and watch it drift down. Run underneath it and watch the colors rain down. Throw a few stuffed animals in the center and bounce them around. Simple, satisfying thrills, and worth every penny. --Claire Dederer

I bought two of these parachutes; one for my daughter and one as a gift. They have been a big hit. Kids come up with great uses for the parachute beyond the play pictured on the box. The parachutes make great forts to hide in and when draped over a window they give a room a bright and colorful glow that kids love. We have also used the parachute as a picnic blanket and strung it in trees to provide shade. You can't miss buying this parachute and Amazon.com's price is great. I have seen the same item go for over $40.00 on ebay. My kids are 3 and 4 and I forsee that they will be playing with their parachute for a long, long time yet. Loving our parachutes!

My three-yr-old daughter LOVES this! (So do I.) And when one of her little friends comes to play, it keeps them busy for ages. This gets the highest fun recommendation.

I tried to determine the size of this parachute prior to purchase. I guessed it would be 10 feet by the amazon pictures that I compared with the Pacific Tent pictures/literature. The Playchute arrived today. It is 10 feet as I expected and it's just the size I was looking for!

I bought this for my 4 year old son and 1 year old daughter, and they both love it! Hey, I love it! It's a portable bag of instant fun for kids and adults to play together. I just taught my son about waves as I made waves of air pass under the parachute. A fun game we found was to put a Hoberman Expanding Universe Sphere in the middle of the playchute and have everyone throw it up. It's a load of fun watching the sphere expand and contract as it flies through the air and lands. This is a toy noone would regret getting.

This is truly a great product..Children of all ages and sizes love running under the parachute or bouncing a beach ball on top, even the grown ups love it..Also it is grest for setting boundries for the children to help keep them seated during parties or just everday activities...best of all we have found that if it does get alittle dirty..we just toss it in the tub with woolite and cool water and within 20 minutes its dry and right back in its carrying case...It"s the BEST

This parachute is the hit of the party, playdate, or just an afternoon in the yard. My two little girls grew up at gymboree classes and love having their own parachute. They have hours of fun whenever we pull it out. The parachute is durable and can be machine washed. It packs up small into its own duffle bag. A great item to keep in the trunk of the car in case you end up at a park or somebody's yard with no playground equipment.

We bought this parachute for my 6yr old son and twin 2yr old daughters. On the weekends they have a lot of their friends over to play. It is hard to find something that everyone can play with together when there are five or six kids. It is one thing that they can all play with and is great for both ages. This toy teaches kids to work together as a team. I agree that you can not fit many kids under it at once, but that has also helped me teach them about taking turns. When they play with it outside they usually put beach balls on it, and when they use it in the basement they use pillows or stuffed animals. This toy is great for all ages. There are so many games to play with it. I don't think my kids could ever get bored with this toy.
