Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit

Stomp Rocket :: 3-5 Year Olds :: $11.99 :: as featured on Gifts with Bows #giftswithbows #GWB

Know a 3-5 year old who runs and climbs and jumps? Well I bet he also stomps.

The energy charged kiddo in your life who delights when objects fly through the air will gleefully stomp away while the supervising adult will stand aside peacefully remarking that the light, foam rocket attachments cannot possibly hurt or damage any people or property in its path.

It’s a kid/adult win.

Wrap this up for your next kid birthday party and you’ll surely get Mom and Dad’s stomp, ahem, stamp of approval.
