Manufacturer's Description

Forget the piccy of the kids on the box. This is pure adult fun. Simply stamp on the pressure pad and see how unbelievably high these things shoot ie about 400ft.. You'll probably lose them all in about an hour, but what the hell.

Dads: Stuck inside on Christmas Day, tubes not running, no shops, no entertainment, no sign of life? Here is the answer to your Christmas prayers, and the kids will love it too.

The Stomp Rocket is an absurdly simply concept - there's really nothing to it, the only wonder is no one's ever thought of it before.

Is it educational? Sure - and how: If given the benefit of the full, concentrated force of father's 17 stone frame travelling downwards with gravity (accelerating at 10m/s2, so well worth experimenting by standing on chairs, ladders, launching from trampolines etc.), these little plastic rockets really will go MILES in the air and will (wind permitting) prescribe a perfect parabola, and the rocket flites are rifled, ensuring the cylinder rotates aerodynamically and thus attains greater distance and accuracy. There; you can't get much more educational than that - and this would be one physics lesson I'd happily repeat, day in day out, at least until the rockets had disappeared.

And disappear they will, very quickly, either by attaining escape velocity and never returning to planet earth at all (Beagle 2 scientists, take note), or by falling apart.

This is my only criticism - the whole thing is VERY flimsy indeed, and the rockets in particular will crack, the flites will fall off, and if you should sit on them, they're useless (there's a lesson in that, too!). I have seen a set of three replacement rockets advertised for £6, which is an abusrd price, given that they are just a plastic tube, a glued-on flight and a rubber nose. And there you have a further educational incentive - it would not be hard, and quite a bit of fun, I dare say, to make the rockets (or even the whole thing) yourself.

Outstanding entertainment.

I bought a Stomp Rocket to take to a week long family reunion which involved kids of widely varying ages - they absolutely loved it and played well together every single day for the whole week with it - really great ( often hilarious ) fun and it had them all running around tiring them out for bedtime - my three year old played with his cousins aged from 6 to 9 and even the adults wanted to have a go. I cannot recommend this highly enough and have just ordered two more as presents. Be sure you have an open space though as we got the rockets stuck in trees a few times. Physical fun with educational element too as the kids learnt different directions and made up different modes of stomping (eg backwards, side to middle, recommend the sitting stomp ! ) I love this.

My 2 have really enjoyed playing with this and have spent many an afternoon outside with it (I enjoyed less having to retrieve rockets off the roof, out of tree's, neighbour's gardens etc...). You 'stomp' on an airfilled bladder which shoots the rocket up quite some distance. The harder you stomp the higher it goes. The launch mechanism allows you to set the angle the rocket flys at. The rockets are very light (lightweight plastic cylinder with a rubbery nose) and so won't break regular windows but could hurt people or do damage to a greenhouse! After a while (several months of being left outdoors to be precise) the plastic rockets go a bit brittle and break easily.

These are so much fun, for adults as well as children, I was amazed how high my son could get it to go. These products are made very well by this manufacturer. And they do everything which is quoted in the product reviews by them.

We used to have one of these in our house yearrrs ago! I'd forgotten how good they were until I was looking for space related stuff for my nephews 4th birthday because he's space mad!

So along with some other spacey things I had to get him this rocket.

If it wasn't for research into the movement of an object by Galileo and Sir Issac Newtons laws of motion we wouldn't have the stomp rocket to stomp the hell out of in our parks and gardens at all!

Things to consider when making a rocket -

- How can you create enough thrust to exceed the weight of the rocket?
- What structural materials and propellant combinations should you use?
- How big will the rocket have to be?
- How can you make the rocket go where you want it to?
- How can you bring it back to Earth safely?

Huh? I haven't got a bloody clue but somebody did and put it in a box for us!

In the box you and your little Lt Neil Armstrong will find the pump and firing tubes already connected. You only need to attach the multi angle stand, stick one of the three rockets on, wait for the right weather conditions then start the countdown.

At T minus 60 minutes you'll need to eat a banana ot two for energy and take a cod liver oil tablet for the old joints. How many years have passed since you last jumped in the air and slammed your foot down?

T - 15 minutes start walking down the park with your child. They'll be running. Don't try to keep up with them! Just shout "ey you! Get back here!" They'll probably ignore you and keep running.

T - 10 minutes Set the damn rocket up. It's raining now and you wished you'd have stayed in watching Sunday Brunch.
