5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for everyone, 31 Aug. 2008
The stomp rocket is just such great fun! Everyone wants a go, not just the young children. My son first saw one of these on display to test out at a festival. He wouldn't leave it alone for the next hour and had to share it with other excited kids attracted by it as he kept firing it. The stomp rocket pack consists of a firing pipe which can be angled for the desired firing position using a screw, connected to a plastic air pump by way of a flexible hose. A foam rocket is placed over the pipe, then stamp or jump on the pump and whoosh, the rocket really does fire a good distance with a sturdy stomp! It really is best firing vertically as it can travel 100ft! Not good for gardens, unless you are firing low as you'd spend the whole time retrieving the rockets. You need a good open space! They can be used indoors and would hit the ceiling harmlessly as they are just foam or could be used for aiming at targets.

Apparently these have been used by teachers to teach basic principles of propulsion.

The senior stomp rocket can fire 400ft and uses sturdier rockets which fit more tightly. If you're thinking of buying both, the junior rockets will fit onto the senior launcher but the senior rockets won't fit the junior launcher, so you could buy a spare junior rocket pack with a senior kit.

The junior and senior stomp rocket launchers are identical. It is only the rockets that are different.
