Blast off into the skies of science with the power of ... air? YES!
Using balloons, straws, and cool cardboard cutouts, you'll build a real working hovercraft, hot rod, helicopter, and rocket, all powered by air.
Follow along with an "airhead" scientist to discover the science of rockets plus the mechanics behind controlling their power.
Learn about Newton's three laws of motion. Discover how hovercrafts and helicopters work. Realize the amazing simplicity behind rocket science.
Even read about air power history - fun facts, like how Chinese warriors discovered rocket power more than 2,000 years ago.

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.
