If you are looking for some outdoor fun that soars for your kids to help them get off the screens and really experience some fun outside, then you have to check out Stomp Rocket. These fun toys will have your kids trying to see just how high they can make a toy rocket go by stomping down.
Stomp Rocket is a great way to teach kids how their action creates a reaction for the rocket. By exerting their energies onto the launch pad, they can see just how high the rocket can soar. And an even better thing about it is that your kids will then have to chase down wherever the rocket lands. Toys that can get my kids to be active and learn at the same time are a winner in my book.
We received the Stunt Planes version of Stomp Rockets to review.
- Three different Stunt Planes designed by aeronautical engineers to do a variety of amazing tricks!
- Change the launch angle, fly with a head wind or tail wind, and more to change how they fly!
- 100% kid-powered. No batteries and no assembly required.
- Includes 3 Stunt Planes, Sturdy Launch Stand and Launch Pad with Air Hose.
- Ages 5-12 (and adults love them, too!)
We took ours out to an open field so that we could have plenty of space to launch the Stomp Rockets without getting them caught in the trees. We experimented with all sorts of angles for the planes to launch and used it as a learning tool. I asked the kids how far they think it might go each time we moved the launch angle. They were able to see how angle and wind affected just where the planes would go. I do suggest you do these where you have PLENTY of space.
I could see this toy being used in Science classes as well as just being a fun way to exert some energy on those days that we don’t have soccer. For a classroom, you could have kids take guesses as to how far the rockets will go. Get an average of distances and more. Speaking of learning, I see a science fair project idea coming soon.
The stunt planes retail for around $30, while smaller version are around $20 or less. Ask your kids science teacher if they would like one for their classroom or get one for your family to use for a day of learning and fun outside.
