Stomp Rocket®️ sent me product for review. All opinions are entirely my own.
As warm sunny spring days arrive at last, kids are aware of two things: the school year is almost over and they can get outside and play.
When Stomp Rocket®️ offered to send me one of their rocket packages to try, I knew who I could tag for product testers. Three of my grandchildren volunteered to run, jump and stomp and launch these rockets into the sky!
What are Stomp Rockets?
Created by aeronautical engineers, Stomp Rocket’s stunt planes and rockets are designed to keep kids active and engaged while learning STEM principals.
STEM is defined as an educational approach in which academic concepts are combined with real world lessons as kids apply Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills.
Using Stomp Rocket®️ planes and rockets, kids learn about concepts such as gravity, force, trajectory and air power. As you will see, playing with the rockets also fired up creativity for my grandchildren, which is an important factor as well. When play sparks creativity it becomes high level of learning.
Stomp Rockets are 100% kid powered, no batteries required, with minor assembly necessary for the stand. They are portable, making them easy to take along to a park or family gathering. Stomp Rocket®️ offers a variety of packages suitable for ages five and up, with junior packages available for kids as young as three.
The company has entertained children for 25 years, winning numerous awards from industry experts. Check out their website Stomp Rocket.
Run, Jump, Stomp
Stomp Rocket®️ sent me the Ultra Rocket LED. The package contains four rockets that light up when launched, and a stand with the kid powered pump. My son assembled the stand and the kids were ready to give the rockets a try.
We had a bright sunny day with very little wind. Son Nate and I snapped photos while Papa Greg cheered the kids on and helped to fetch rockets as they plummeted back to earth. Carl the dog just wanted to be where the action was!
My Product Testers
Aubrey, age 10, proved girls can run, jump and stomp while wearing flip flops. Look at her concentration!
Oliver, age 11, is my most active grandchild. Look at that jumping form!
And Joey, age 12, is a few months shy of becoming a teenager. He already looks like one in his photo!
The kids had fun with the Stomp Rockets. They quickly discovered that force determined how high the rocket shot into the air. These three are competitive, which added to the fun.
The empty field across the street inspired a game.
As one child launched the rocket into the air, the others ran out into the field, attempting to catch it as it fell. That game progressed to each child trying to catch their own rocket after it launched.
Carl the dog even got in on the action. With the help of his boy Joey, he sent a rocket into the air too.
My Thoughts About Stomp Rocket®️
I enjoyed watching my grandkids play with the rockets. These technology minded children use cell phones and computers with ease and play their fair share of electronic games. It was great to see them running and playing and laughing outside. My son and daughter-in-law provide equipment that encourages outdoor play and most importantly, they join the kids in activities. The Stomp Rockets are perfect for this family.
I loved, too, that the kids got creative and made up their own games. A toy or product that’s adaptable and sparks imagination gets high marks from me. Grandson Oliver even felt inspired to make his own rocket out of paper and tape. How great is that? He tried out designs and adapted his until he could test it on the launcher. His paper rocket worked incredibly well, shooting into the air and travelling great distances, due to its light weight. That’s what a good educational product will do…inspire learning and encourage play that begets invention or art.
This burst of creativity carried over into a fun video that two of the grandchildren created, after I left. My son went outside as the sun set, to find Oliver and Aubrey creating a marketing “commercial” for Stomp Rocket®️. Take a look at their humorous video. Can you see how much fun they are having?
Thank you, Stomp Rocket®️, for the fun and for the learning experiences.
