Launching in the UK next month (October 2013), and landing just in time for Bonfire Night (5 Nov), is the Skylight Rocket. A massive hit at this year’s New York Toy Fair and developed by the inventor of the original Stomp Rocket, it offers an opportunity for younger children to get involved and become an active part of the celebration by shooting rockets of their own. A soft and safe alternative to fireworks that, thanks to the LED lights, promise to light up the sky.
Perfect for celebrating Bonfire Night, New Year or for enjoying the colourful lights of fireworks year-round, the air-powered Skylight Rocket, with its plastic and foam construction, and flashing blue and red lights, makes the fun of rocket launching simple and safe for all ages. Parents in particular will be relieved to see the introduction of this child-friendly, safe alternative to pyrotechnic rockets.
Capable of travelling up to 300ft, this new Skylight Rocket set is sure to be on the wish lists of all budding rocket scientists. The re-usable rockets are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, and with the bright LED lights, it’s easy to see where they land.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Assemble the adjustable rocket stand aiming into the sky. Switch on the red and blue flashing light sequence. Commence the countdown then jump on to the air-pump launch pad to send the rocket blasting off. The bigger the jump, the higher it goes! With two light-up flashing LED Skylight rockets for night use and another three standard rockets for day use, children will be able to send Skylight rockets soaring 24/7.
WHERE CAN I BUY IT?
The Skylight Rocket is available from selected retailers, including Howleys Toys (www.howleys.co.uk, 01305 779255) priced from £14.99 (SRP). Recommended for children aged five and over.
