Kids love to dream about going to Space one day and now they can pretend they are flying around in this movable rocket in Outer Space! 

I have two rockets, each which can be moved with the use of an attached popsicle stick! You can see how the rockets can be moved about in the video below.

Space crafts and activities are becoming increasingly popular with boys and girls! I have a few others that you might want to try as well as this one.
