Zing Blast Off – Zoom Rocketz
A toy rocket that can zoom up to 150 feet?! Powered by air? Sounds like a good time to me!
Zoom Rocketz are lots of battery free fun, that will get your kids begging to head outside. Easy to load and aim, this rocket will be soaring through the air in no time.
How high or far it goes is all up to you, and how hard you can stomp on the launch pad. Take a running jump to help it go the distance, or give it a smaller stomp for just short trip. Make it go as high as you can or shoot it to a friend simply by adjusting the flight path. To help insure that your rocket will make it where you want it to go, each one is equipped with three roto fins. Playing a game of catch? The soft foam tip will help make that a bit easier!
Each Zoom Rocketz Launcher comes with 3 Zoom Rocketz which will equal hours of fun.
