I’m always looking for something “new” for the boys to play with outside. It’s also important that a toy or activity hold their attention span for longer than a few minutes. And although the Florida heat kicks up a notch during summer, it’s still important for the boys to do physical activities outdoors. We just keep it in moderation.
Something I had eyed for them was the Super Parachute by Alex Toys. We were first introduced to this awesome toy at the boys Music class and then again at Preschool Co-op. The kids (and their friends) absolutely LOVED it and I knew it would be a great addition to our outside toy collection.

- A deluxe party set that adds 16 plastic balls for more bouncy fun!
- Comes with a convenient carrying case.
We recently had a playdate with our neighbors and brought out the Super Parachute to entertain the kids. Needless to say the kids had a blast and couldn’t stop giggling.
My younger son is 17 months and had just as much fun as the other kids. I appreciate how colorful the Super Parachute is and the plastic balls are a great addition, especially for younger kids!
Alex Toys not only offers the Super Parachute, but many other engaging toys for children. Some other favorites of mine are the Learn to Write, Play Mat and Sew Fun sewing machine. I love that their toys focus on education and imagination.
The Super Parachute party retails for $58.95 at alextoys.com. At the time of this review I located the Super Parachute on amazon for $36.76, which I am certain will not last for long! The Super Parachute party is perfect for birthday parties, playdates, preschool, group settings and more! It’s made of durable, high quality material and I am certainly impressed! And guess what….Alex Toys has agreed to a giveaway! That’s right, one of My Boys and Their Toys readers will win this awesome toy!
