This rocket launcher made for a GREAT birthday party! My 7yo wanted a rocket party instead of a "bounce" party, so we got this for its incredible WOW! factor. My 12 year old assembled the launcher in less that 30 minutes and we were out shooting off rockets in the front yard, backyard, driveway...hallway (not recommended). We had 17 kids making their very own paper rockets and launching them even in wind and rain. The parents were equally as impressed, or maybe even more so. It made for a super cool birthday party, for half the price for twice as many people...and we still have the launcher...and we're still launching!
