Little kids line up for a turn, race after rockets, and find a little piece of heaven in play with this toy. Parents do too – no noise, no batteries, active playtime, energy released, endless reuses, plenty of fun for everyone, and laughter - sweet laughter.
Stomp Rocket Jr. is so easy to use even very small kids can set up the toy rockets, jump, stomp, and launch rockets on their own. Take a Stomp Rocket to an event and kids come by droves to watch, and then grin from ear to ear about the distance the rockets fly. Stomp Rockets get children moving. Not only do kids stomp them, it’s a race to go retrieve them, as well! Sturdy enough that mom and dad, older brothers and sisters can get in on the fun too!
Kids naturally find creative ways to have fun with the launch pads and safe, foam rockets. They quickly learn how to angle the launcher to hit targets.
It won’t be long before they’re competing for distance, carrying the launcher and launching rockets on the run, and coming up with different ways to stomp - one foot hops, two foot hops, bottom bounces, running leaps… You’ll see soon enough, the variations are endless.
(The wonderful, simple design of the Stomp Rocket lends itself to imaginative play in ways you wouldn’t expect! Given as a gift to a little boy… it became his vacuum, his snow blower, and a gas can for a toy car… all before he understood the capabilities of it as a rocket toy!)
Using Your Stomp Rocket:
Snap the plastic tube onto the base and stomp on the pad. Air shoots through the tube and propels the foam rocket up into the air. (We did say we love the simplicity!)

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.

Identified Special Needs Challenges: Down Syndrome
"Person is highly functional and normal intelligence, so I don't have suggestions."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Down Syndrome
"Great for Down's Syndrome kids. Assists with hand-eye coordination -putting the rocket on correctly, Balance -jumping on the pump to make the rocket shoot, and then watching to see where it landed and running to get it -good exercise. Easy to learn how to use. Easy to put together."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: ADD/ADHD,

Speech & Language Delay
"The preschool I used for was a combination of regular ed/special ed. All the kids were able to use this toy! It was a great tool regarding coordination and self expression."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Apraxia,
Sensory Integration Disorder
"Used it to get children to put more weight on an injured leg while picking up the other leg to kick it. It's a balance tool - children have to stand on one leg for a second. Have had children use their hands to also use it. It's good for hand eye coordination."
My 2 year old son isn't heavy enough to "stomp" the rocket on his own, but he LOVES to watch it fly when someone else stomps on it for him. I think when he is a bit older and heavier he will play with it more frequently.
I gave this to my nephew for his 4th birthday. He wanted to go out and launch his rocket right away. It didn't seem to bother him that it was a cold and rainy day with 20 mile an hour wind gusts. A few days later my brother sent me a video of my nephew launching his rocket. After every rocket launch he would look at the camera with a huge grin and yell "isn't that cool dad?!?"
Bought this for my 3 year old nephew. It took him a short while to become comfortable using it because he doesn't weigh much and you have to put a fair amount of force into compressing the pad, but once he got the hang of it he didn't stop. Other kids in the neighborhood enjoyed it too, not to mention the adults lol.
It's most fun outdoors, but the rockets are light enough that you can use them inside without breaking anything (within reason).
