Stomp Rockets #giveaway


I had such a hard time getting my boys to wait for a sunny day to play with these!


Welcome to the third and final giveaway from 4Knowledge-4Fun!  Week one was the Kimmidolls, week two was Peg Stackers, this week is Stomp Rockets!


We received the Stomp Rocket Ultra set and the refill pack.


We went to the park and chose to set up inside the tennis court to reduce the chance of missiles going astray.


This was SO MUCH FUN!  A stomp sent the rockets flying.


Way, way up!


My boys took turns stomping, loading, retrieving.


If you look close, you can see I caught this one on the way up.  The lag time on my camera makes it hard to catch a time sensitive shot.


We spent a lot of time craning our necks upward and saying, "Wow!"  The rocket has gone all the way out of the shot in this picture.


Finally, the too cool teenager had to get in on the fun.


Yep, this is fun!


She really got into it, too.


I don't know about you, but this looks active enough to count as P.E. to me!  Running, jumping, catching, hand eye coordination, taking turns... all sorts of learning to be had here, without the kids ever suspecting.

And where were the little girls during all of this??


Watching from the safety of the bench outside the court.


Even though the box says ages 8 and up, we let Hannah, who is 7, have a try.  You can see the rocket is going up just to the right of Eli's hand.


Anything Hannah does, Katie, who is 4, wants to try, too.  You can see her rocket didn't get very high, but part of her issue is that she's balancing on her prosthetic leg while she stomps with her other foot, which is an awkward movement for her.  I'm sure she'll get better at it as she gets older.

Are you ready to win your own super fun Stomp Rockets?  US only, please.  Prize will be shipped after Christmas.

    1. It's so funny that they're back. I remember trying to find plain shoes when Zach started walking, and being frustrated because everything was Barney, dalmations or TMNT.

  6. Your pictures showing the different children launching the stomp rockets are just great. I believe playing with them should count for a P.E. activity as well. I do not think I am fast enough with a camera to catch a rocket in the air.

  24. It would depend on which child! Anything Olaf for the youngest, anything Legos for the next, anything Skylanders for the next and Shadow Zoomer for the oldest(we can't have a dog right now, which she desperately wants, so this is the next best thing to her!).... Really they will be thankful for anything though <3

    1. Mine are eating candy canes right now. Before dinner. Good mom, right? :eyeroll: I bought 3 boxes 2 days ago and put them in a jar in the front room. I'm guessing they'll be gone by the end of the weekend--but there are 8 kids here, so...
