“It’s a space rocket with a lift!” – Girl aged 3
What our experts think
The Four-Stage Rocket Ship is great for encouraging imaginative play while introducing children to concepts in space. It was quick and easy to put together- although a screwdriver was needed. Our testers got lost in an imaginative world while playing with the rocket ship, fantastic for building their creativity and helping their personal, social and emotional development.
We found the rocket ship great for storytelling and developing vocabulary – children were able to identify the rocket, spaceman and alien, and once told the actual name “astronaut”, continued to use this throughout their play. The many different interactive features opened up lots of discussion about space which helped develop children’s understanding of the subject.
