My neighbor showed me this POPULAR fun toy. (Thank you, Elaine). She brought her few years old one over to my house. I found it on Amazon, read all the reviews, and ordered one (and also a Christmas gift so I would get free shipping).
This has been a HUGE hit with Logan.
But first, the reviews. The rockets are junk. Most of the reviews said that. I agree. I left mine in the shipping box. (After all, one ALREADY had a broken broken fin :(
It comes with a stand. Kinda junk. (Still in the box :(
I know. It sounds like I paid for junk. NO!
The thing you stomp on and the tube you put your rockets on are worth every penny (and nickle, dime, quarter and dollar). Elaine showed me how to make great rockets with typing paper (500 sheets for under $3.00) and mailing tape (or masking tape, or any tape).
|Doug cut 1 foot lengths of flexible tubing. (Enough for 10 rocket makers.)|
Each rocket needs 1 piece of paper, decorated or not, and tape.
|Roll the paper around the tube (same diameter as launching tube)|
and tape shut. It can be hand decorated on the tube now.
|Fold one end to a point and tape it shut.|
|Now we have an unlimited supply of rockets to launch on our|
very fun rocket launcher that dear son in law, David, modified :)
