After 2 years of production, these are finally here!
PARACHUTE with a MENORAH or DREIDEL attached
Watch a video of dropping it from the 3/4th story here:
pay attention to how its thrown 4/5 pieces at a time for a much cooler effect!
Watch a video of just throwing it into the crowd right here
Better view of size, safe to catch
The parachute measures:
26 inches x 7 inches tall!
including the parachute, the straps, and the Toy.
The Menorah Toy in itself measures about 3 inches tall, while the dreidel measures about 2 inches.
Each complete piece measures just under 1oz.
It is made of premium quality material to ensure no strangulation and an impressive finished piece.
Do you want to create a program where Menorahs & Dreidels fall from the sky? Do you have a Chanukah Gelt Drop? Or do you want to just stand on a ladder (you can cover with a curtain) and throw it into the crowd.
Want to make the excitement last a bit longer? Look more dramatic? Go in different directions in the sky?
These parachutes open up and fall in different directions.
Each Parachute has either a menorah or dreidel pre-attached.
This can be used in conjuction with a gelt drop
(drop gelt on its own and add a bunch of these for its' dramatic effect) or on its own.
How does this program work?
Shluchim typically use a helicopter, cherry picker, fire truck, or balcony to drop gelt and parachute toys onto the ground.
The crowd then runs around collecting it.
Do these have gelt? Where does the gelt go?
There is no gelt on these parachutes. The Parachutes have either a dreidel or Menorah attached (depending which you choose)
You can also easily remove the toy and replace it with another item like these LED menorah Rings (https://www.shluchimservices.com/led-menorah-ring.html
) , tape a piece of gelt to the existing piece, or remove the toy and replace some with an entire package of gelt. The variety and special pieces will create more excitement for the kids (and kids at heart).
Please keep in mind that the heavier it is, the faster it will fall.
We have tested the parachute with all these examples listed and it works!
What if i don't have a gelt drop? How else can this be used?
In the second video (you can also see here), you can see how you can just throw it into the crowd. For a better effect, get a regular ladder, and if you want, surround it by a curtain (or uneccessary). You can then just drop these into the crowd. For picture and pr purposes, this is really cool!
We have tested this from the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th story of buildings in both a NY and FL climate.
Every climate is different and while we believe and hope it will work everywhere, you will need to test it.
We have not actually tested it from a helicopter.
The higher space you are going from, the more free room you want to have so that it will not get stuck in trees or fire escapes etc.
We suggest throwing about 5-8 pieces at a time and constantly letting more drop in order to make it longer lasting
