Junior Sunflower Parachute Reviews

Product Tested By Yvonne Philpot – Jimmy 4 Years

Yvonne Awarded The Junior Sunflower Parachute 4.6/5

I thought this was an unusual toy but very bright and colourful and captured Jimmy’s attention. This looked good and we love outdoor play so Ideal for us. We have a large family so it was great to get wrapped up and ready to try this out in the garden. We all got together and played as a team with 2 teams. Jimmy was first up to run under without being touched by the parachute and we all got points deducted if touched by the parachute. Jimmy really enjoyed this as loved running under this while we were all lifting it up and down. We also put the ball supplied in the middle and each tried to catch it in our section of the parachute and that was fun for the whole family. This is a great team toy and Jimmy and his friends would play with this with out help, and we have played as a family and with grandparents too. Kept us active and enjoyed by all. I do think this is a great way for children to interact and with their team (as we always played in teams) and helped them to converse with other members to try and win the game. I think we all found this game competitive and this will be great to use in the summer months too as we will be outside in the garden more. I would say this did keep Jimmy entertained and the whole family. Was great to have a game we could all enjoy. This was used at least a couple of times a week as great to get outside and kept us all active too. Jimmy loved running under this and enjoyed bouncing the ball as part of the game too as helped improve hand eye coordination. I would say Jimmy had fun but personally I feel this is more suitable for older children as they get more out of it and understand the concept more. Definitely helped Jimmy to understand he needed to work with his team and helped his balancing and coordination skills too. This is good quality and I can see this lasting for many years to come. Personally although we all loved this I think the price is a bit high for this game. I would not purchase this as out of our price range but I would recommend to people with larger families as brings you together and great game for all the family to play. We all enjoyed this game and liked the bag it came in to store and keep until used again. I also think this will be used so much more in the warmer months ahead. Kept us all entertained and enjoyed by all. Yvonne Philpot – Jimmy 4 Years

This arrived neatly packaged and when opened looked bright, appealing and we were eager to try this out. I liked the idea this was an outdoor toy to encourage Sandy to enjoy playing outside. With help and guidance Sandy found this easy enough to play with friends and the family. She enjoyed the game where you had to run under the parachute while we all waved it up and down. This kept her active and her friends enjoyed this aspect of the game too. The ball supplied was OK but not big enough so we did find another suitable ball and would place in the middle and each take turns to try and keep it on the parachute. This helped with coordination and balancing skills and was enjoyed by all. The ball bouncing game was fun and helped us all work together as a team to keep the ball bouncing and on the parachute. The ball part of the game keeping it bouncing did become competitive and great interactive fun. Sandy and her friends did enjoy this game and it did keep them entertained. I also look forward to using this in the garden in the warmer weather when it can be used more. This was played with at least once a week, but when the warmer weather comes round it will be used a lot more. This is definitely an outdoor game and would not be ideal to play indoors as large and you would need a lot of space. As a family we had fun with this game and was also enjoyed when Sandy had her friends over. Sandy really enjoyed running under the parachute making sure it did not touch her. I liked the fact it was a game for everyone as this can be played with 6 players, and got the children outside. I think for nurseries this would be a great interactive game to have for the children to play with. I personally feel 3 years is a bit young for this game and would aim a little older. I do agree this helped improve coordination, working together as a team and certainly helped with concentration skills. Great outdoor game, good concept but personally I feel expensive. The quality of this game is very good. I would not buy this game due to the price as bit expensive for our budget. I would recommend this game as it does get everyone up and outside and active enjoying a team game. Bright colourful design which is appealing to children and we all had fun playing this game and you can create a variety of games to play together. A nice family game which was enjoyed by all.

Bright, colourful, nicely packaged. Looks fun, good to encourage outdoor play. On observation and use with my Grandson it was quite hard to sustain a ball/item in the middle square – almost like it wasn’t big enough to maintain the attention each time you added something to it. Running under the parachute was a better aspect of the game and for children they could see more of an exit and therefore less intimidated by running under it. We did not get a ball with this and we used our own which was difficult to do given the size of the square. Our grandson became quite frustrated as the ball kept falling off regularly. He did find int entertaining running underneath the parachute. This was played with in a group enjoying bouncing it up and down and running underneath. This was played with outside as definitely an outdoor toy. We did all play this together but possibly this is more for older children. Alex liked raising it high as possible and back down again. I liked that it is an outdoor game rather than something keeping children indoors. I do agree this would be ideal to have in schools, possible preschool age, not younger. Our grandson has just turned 4, I think 4 and above is more appropriate as he became quite frustrated at it given the size of the square and trying to keep objects on the parachute. Less so team building, as played with 2 children and 2 adults, possibly I more of a childcare setting. Personally I think this is expensive. Appears to be a good quality and that it would last with push and pull from child use. I would buy this for older children, and if it was on sale. I would pay £20. I would recommend but would outline the price and more likely recommend to others who have older children. Nicely packaged. Useful bag to store. Bright and colourful design. I can see the value of the range of games you can play with this product, but I feel it is more appropriate for age 4-5+. Given the design of the square and how the parachute is split it was frustrating for our grandson. The overall quality and design of the parachute is clean and sturdy – appears easy to keep clean given that it would mostly be an outside toy for our family. Emily Clough – Alex 4 Years
