Stomp Rocket Super High Performance

Sometimes the best things in life are also the most simple. That goes for the stomp rocket, one of the greatest, and simplest, toys around. And if your middle schooler thinks he's too old for this one, think again! This rocket soars up to 400 feet (that's 40 stories), and it's recommended for ages 16+. But as long as kids don't try to catch the rockets on the way down, there's no reason middle schooler's can't enjoy the fun. With a setup of only a few minutes, and fun potential of hours upon hours, this stomper is built to last! Also available: Stomp Rocket Junior (for ages 3-8) and Stomp Rocket Ultra (for ages 8+).
