This Rocket Car is powered by baking soda and vinegar. It is fast and totally unique and fun. It's a real rocket on wheels, powered by a patented baking soda and vinegar fueling system. The baking soda and vinegar formula start a powerful chemical reaction that will propel the Rocket Car over 200 feet. You can experiment with the proportions to create your own secret rocket fuel mixture. It is 24 inches long. Ages 8 and up. Adult supervision is required for younger children.
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 8 years of age.

Did not know that car needed to be put together from scratch... poor design of rear wheels and propulsion system.

It was a gift and I think the child was too young. But he got real frustrated fast.
Your toy rocket should fly you to the moon in fun. If you land there in frustration, by all means call us. We contacted our customer with the option of a return or exchange. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.
