Behind the design

It's less messy than a bottle of diet soda and a package of Mentos, but just as much fun!

    Great fun. Took a little while to get the knack of the launch but would definitely buy again :)



    It was really straightforward to put together and worked really well. Was very fun



    My son and husband and I all absolutely loved this one! We took it out to launch several times!

    Very easy and fun project. My son loves it! It shoots pretty high. Good time. Please send more baking soda and citric acid next time. And balloons that are more elastic!



    I have to say this one was the best even for me! Lol my son LOVED this rocket! He found it so fun and even while putting it together he was super excited to watch it launch! Love that everything was provided.
