Stomp Rockets -- good old fashioned fun.

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Santa brought Little Brother a Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow kit.  Easy peasy assembly of a few parts, and off you go.

Our yard has lots of trees, so we took the rockets to the park.  After a quick demonstration, the two-year-old had no trouble setting the rocket on the launch pad all by himself.

Then jump!  If you don't even weigh 35 pounds, and haven't quite mastered big jumps yet, you might need just a little help.

But if you're nearing 50 pounds, you can practically launch a rocket to the moon.

Higher, higher!

Then you get to run and retrieve the rocket (which hopefully hasn't gotten stuck in a tree).

It's amazing how high these things go (or how far, if you aim horizontally).  It's great fun for the whole family. 

We can't wait to take our rockets back to the park.  But, until then, we'll practice with the indoor version, which doesn't go nearly as high but is still quite fun.
