  • 5 out of 5 Excellent Quality

    Newitts Verified Purchase (4 Apr 2023)

    Lots of fun with our Brownie Unit (7 - 10 years) they make up their own games and really enjoy their parachute both inside the church hall and outside in the park! Very robust, stitching and material very tough with no tears or splits after several weeks of energetic play!

  • 5 out of 5 24 handle parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (23 Oct 2022)

    Absolutely fabulous. Was so worried it would be too big for our church hall but it was perfect. The children and parents (!!!) absolutely loved it ????

  • 5 out of 5 Fab product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (26 Aug 2021)

    Very pleased with the product. It’s been very useful in the garden in lockdown and was easy to pack away and take camping with friends.

  • 5 out of 5 Play Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Jul 2021)

    Perfect for our staff away day. Adults having lots of fun with plenty of laughter. We will be letting the children have a play too!

  • 5 out of 5 Just what we were looking for

    We wanted a parachute with more than 4 colours, so this one looked great. The green is nicer in reality than it looked like it would be which is a bonus. It seems well enough made, sturdy handles, neat seams. It hasn't been tested massively, but has withstood everything so far. Very pleased.

  • 5 out of 5 Diana Taber/Loopy Lous Funfactory

    Newitts Verified Purchase (10 Apr 2020)

    I have not had much time to use it before Corona Virus hit us. Over the last 12 years of running my Dance company and teaching in Children Centres. the best parachutes are from Newitts Louise Taber Loopy Lous Funfactory

  • 5 out of 5 Perfect

    Newitts Verified Purchase (18 Oct 2019)

    This parachute is brilliant - well made, strong and has bright and bold colours. I use it at a toddler group and the children absolutely love it - they certainly put it through its paces!!

  • 5 out of 5 Beautiful colourful parachute!

    Perfect size to use in a small room with a group of young children. Well made and beautiful rainbow colours.

  • 5 out of 5 Very good quality

    Newitts Verified Purchase (10 Aug 2019)

    I have been looking for a parachute like this for such a long time had even considered making one myself. Thank goodness Newitts has this one and for a reasonable price too. I love the colours and it feels like it will lay a long time. I’ve used my previous parachutes roughly 4 times a week and after regular washes they felt pretty flimsy and worn out. I don’t expect this to happen with this one. Very happy with it!

  • 5 out of 5 FUN, Joy in a multi-generation game

    Try the first time for my son's birthday 13 participants aged 7-50 Very good quality. Nice colors. A lot of fun ! Super material to share a multi-generation game time !  
    Among many ways to play, what a joy for everyone to lift the canvas, let it swell with air and run under it to change places before it covers us! Little and big loved it ! I highly advise,
    Emmanuelle BM(France)

  • 5 out of 5 Great product

    Lovely made parachute, beautiful bright colours, sturdy enough for my 24 Brownies. Large parachute for a very reasonable price indeed. I would highly recommend. Yvonne Blair (Brown Owl)

  • 5 out of 5 Great!

    Great quality and does what it says! Use it for my business and it lasts very well. Not a lot else to say about a parachute.

  • 5 out of 5 6m Parachute Fabulous!

    Newitts Verified Purchase (17 Oct 2016)

    Needed to enable lots of children of varying ages under 10 to play together at a church Family Fun day. This was a fabulous buy! The multiple colours shone with the sun on it and through it, the handles made it easy for small children to take part and the breather hole in the middle ensured no one was pulled over. 6m is very big so make sure you have the space with wriggle room around the outside. Well made and warmly recommended!

  • 5 out of 5 Quality

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Oct 2016)

  • 5 out of 5 A big hit in rural Africa

    Newitts Verified Purchase (25 Sep 2016)

    I took out a 7m parachute to use as a games activity in a primary school in rural Kenya. It was a huge success, providing much laughter and excitement. It is strongly made and I have every confidence that it will be well used for several years!

  • 5 out of 5 Worth every penny!

    Great parachute used for our church Fun Day. Kids really enjoyed it. Good size and number of handles. Seems robust. Good price. Speedy delivery.

  • 2 out of 5 Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Sep 2016)

    I had no difficulties with the service Newitts provided regarding delivery of this product. The product however; failed to meet expectations when on the first use one of the handles tore away. Newitts customer services have been very prompt at dealing with this issue and a new one is being replaced. I look forward to trying out the replacement.

  • 5 out of 5 Playm8 parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Sep 2016)

    Great quality for the price. Can be packed easily away in a little nylon bag - supplied with the parachute. The girls had great fun playing all the games. They can't wait until our next meeting to have more fun.

  • 5 out of 5 Play Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (8 Jul 2016)

    This parachute seems to be of a very good quality. Has stood up well to enthusiastic use! Handy carry bag makes storing easy.

  • 5 out of 5 Love it!

    Newitts Verified Purchase (14 Jun 2016)

    We ordered this parachute for our Brownie unit. The absolutely love it, there are enough handles for them to have one each and enough space for the whole unit to join in. The parachute looks as though it has been made from good quality material which will hopefully be durable and long lasting. We have had many hours of fun so far and we hope to have many, many more. The service we received from Newitts was also great. The price was good and much cheaper than other places we had looked, the delivery price was cheap and the overall service we received was great, this included super fast delivery (2 days after dispatch) even though we only paid for standard. I would certainly order other products from Newitts after the service that I have received and would highly recommend them to anyone else.

  • 5 out of 5 Play Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (24 May 2016)

    So far we have only used the parachute a couple of times but the children love the size and the fact there is enough room for all of our group.

  • 5 out of 5 Great value and lovely quality

    Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Apr 2016)

    I purchased this product for my little boy's birthday party - it is really well made, and I love the colourful sections - am sure we will continue to use it for lots of fun games after his party too!

  • 5 out of 5 Good choice

    Newitts Verified Purchase (30 Mar 2016)

    Lovely colours, good quality handles/edging. Folds away easily. Light and easy for small children to play with. Only thing worth knowing is the nylon feel makes a lot of static energy and everyone's hair ends up standing up straight in the air when playing with it. Just adds immensely to the fun and hilarity for the kids. But adults might want to be aware they will emerge looking rather disheveled!

  • 5 out of 5 9m Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (12 Mar 2016)

    Bought for 24 eager Beavers at our local Scout Group. Amazing! Everyone enjoying all the different games that is being used for. Many hours of fun ahead.

    Arrived swiftly & now being enjoyed by pre-school children near Cape Town where our daughter is volunteering in her Gap Year! Thank You.

  • 5 out of 5 Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (21 Feb 2016)

    This Parachute is perfect for my children's classes love that it has 6 colours rather than the more normal 4, I went for the 3.5m one which is ideal for 12+ children although a bit small to play cat and mouse, life gards, with you need he 5m one for that. It's nicly made so think it will last a long time.

  • 5 out of 5 Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (14 Sep 2015)

    We urgently needed a replacement parachute for a holiday club. The quality and strength of this parachutes is superb, especially the handles which can be a weak point. It folds up very easily with a velcro strap and stores away in a bag. I'm sure the whole thing will last for many years.

  • 5 out of 5 Playchute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (8 Aug 2015)

    It's been taken to an orphanage in India where they have been having the most marvellous time with it. I hope it stands up to the wear and tear of frequent use but we'll probably never know.

  • 5 out of 5 Fab fun

    Newitts Verified Purchase (8 Jun 2015)

    I needed a parachute for my youth group (approximately 25 7-11 year olds) and did a lot of research. Newitts were really helpful before and after, the parachute was delivered very promptly and if brilliant. It is strong, has 24 handles and comes in a handy bag which is easy to get the parachute back in. I love it and so do the kids. (PS I bought the 7 metre version)

  • 5 out of 5 Brilliant!

  • 4 out of 5 6 metre playM8 parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (21 Sep 2014)

    The parachute arrived quickly and in good condition. It was larger than I expected but great for larger childrens parties although could still be used for smaller parties if the adults joined in. Very bright and colourful and has been a hit with all the children.

  • 5 out of 5 PLAYM8 Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (18 Aug 2014)

    Arrived in good time, great quality and ideal for what we wanted. Brought this for a new Scout Group for Beavers and Cubs to use. Purchased a cheaper one from another site but it was not up to the job. This one is, hope to have many years use out of it

  • 5 out of 5 Play parachute

    Great parachute, good size, hours and hours of fun. So many things to do with it from just flapping it with toddlers to colour matching counting, and 101 other things.

  • 5 out of 5 Funfilled activities

    Newitts Verified Purchase (3 Aug 2014)

    We are using our PLAYM8 Play Parachute with our 'Lubenham Lambs' pre-school group which meets in church. It has been a great hit with the children and the parents - excellent for when we have picnics and can work outside. When we have space it is good indoors as well, so many different games and activities with one piece of apparatus,

  • 5 out of 5 Best of it's kind - really excellent

    Newitts Verified Purchase (30 Jul 2014)

    This is the second one of these I have bought from this c0 , the first one withstood nearly two and a half years of weekly batterring by kids in preschools & nurseries I visit, and I couldn't reccommend this product more in terms of it's durability & pricepoint. Another added bonus is that unlike most other similar ones it has more colours than just the primaries, which is a nice visual bonus for small people.

  • 5 out of 5 6m Play Parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (30 Jul 2014)

    Bought for trip to Zambia to aid sports coaching and to leave out there for future use. Service from Newitts was great and parachute arrived promptly and well packed. Fantastic colours and strength of fabric, seams and handles. Packed small and light enough to transport within luggage restrictions. Fits about double the amount of children to handles with them holding onto corded edge and perfect size being big but not heavy to raise and lower. Great for lots of different team-building games and fun. Stitching on one side of parachute is slightly raised at seams(flat on other side). On the flat side a ball moves smoothly around the parachute. I had thought the slight ridges on the other side would hinder movement of a ball around the parachute but it turned out to be quite fun as it made the movement very slightly more unpredictable on that side which added to challenge and fun! Great parachute and very good value for money.

  • 5 out of 5 Good quality and good value

    Newitts Verified Purchase (23 Jul 2014)

    We bought this to entertain a party of 15 roudy 4 year olds and it held up pretty well. It's good quality for the price with double stitching and a re-inforced edge and handles. Looks like it will last a while and the kids loved it. Much cheaper here than other places we looked too. Would recommend.

  • 5 out of 5 Delighted Kenyan kids loved their new play parachute

    Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Nov 2013)

    This parachute has travelled to Kenya and been donated to a mission team who will use it for play sessions in schools and Sunday schools in and around Nairobi. It is really sturdy and has already proved itself as a very popular item of play equipment. I highly recommend it as able to withstand far more hands around it than there were handles!

  • 5 out of 5 9 metres of parachute fun!

    Newitts Verified Purchase (27 Oct 2013)

    I needed a large play parachute at short notice and the largest I could find online was at Newitts. Not only was it large, it was also cheaper than smaller parachutes sold by other outlets. The reviews were good so I ordered one and it arrived within 36 hours. Since then, I've used it to run very successful parachute workshops in primary schools. I have it our ready as children come into the hall and it gives an immediate wow factor - it's so huge. The parachute is very well made with secure hold-handles and a strong perimeter cord in the lining. For price, value and quality, I'd definitely recommend this parachute.

  • 5 out of 5 Great Value

    Newitts Verified Purchase (18 Aug 2013)

    This enormous parachute (9m diametre) is fantastic for large groups of children and is very bright and colourful. I have used other parachutes which were much thinner and ripped easily, so I was pleasantly surprised by the quality especially since the price seemed so low for the size of the parachute.
