Smart Landing

Sir Isaac Newton declared, "What goes up must come down." And thanks to this dynamic game, your little one will understand this concept well before Kindergarten. Atlason Design created these gravity-defying wooden guys who fly in with a bulls-eye target and a booklet of suggested experiments that will sharpen children's minds by helping them gain a knowledge of physics through play. The target doubles as a storage bag for the parachutists, making cleanup quick and easy after an exciting day of daring stunts is done. Made in China.

Fun product, but misleading photos.

        Comments about PARACHUTISTS:

        At the time of our purchase, the photos imply that you will receive two of each color of parachute - a set of 4. This is actually a set of 2 - one red, one blue, one target.
        The photos or item description need to clarify this, please.

        The toy is cute and comes in a nice gift box that is fun and easy for children to open, but it is expensive for what you get: two 12-inch-wide parachutes with tiny peg people. There is nothing outstanding about this toy to justify the cost - it isn't hand crafted, and the parachute is cheap and thin, not silky. It would be nice if it were a bigger set.

              Comments about PARACHUTISTS:

              These little guys are hysterically cute and my little stunt men (and woman) absolutely love them. The target is a brilliant way to play because it's like combining parachutes with darts. Plus you can wrap them up in the flap on the back side of the target for storage.

              We think this creative game is right on target, but would you love to see it land in our assortment?

              Why support products made in China?

              fun idea for childre of all ages. Made in China does not both me for items like this - that means it will cost about $10 vs. $20! Also, keeping an area employed in China. It is impossible to find these kind of workers in the states.

              My boys LOVE anything on a parachute!

              You could easily make this yourself with a handkerchief, some string, and a wooden figure. Draw a target on the ground with chalk and voila.

              Depends on cost user reviews.

              It looks like it could be fun with some age groups, but personally I am watching what I buy that is not made here... in the USA. So I would really have to love it for someone special to cross over my commitment to American artists and manufacturers.

              Doesn't look substantial..and made in China. Chinese item,s are not yet very good quality. I would rather pay more and get a better product.

              Made in China? Not uncommon. I bet they have this at Cost Plus...

              I thought it would be a cute game but it's made in CHina which usually means poor quality. I don't buy anything made in China.

              plastic bags with a magnet attached would be the same.

              not unique. doesn't look sturdy

              Carol

              YES. YES. AND. YESSSSS. Not only for children.

              Christen

              Great idea- potentially fun for the kiddos. I am a bit reluctant to invest more into overseas manufacturers.
