Take Christmas to a new level this year!

No matter the season, it’s always blast off time with the Marky Sparky Blast Pad Rocket Launcher. This interactive toy will have your kiddos jumping for joy (literally!) to send the foam-tipped rockets sky high.

To see if the soaring reviews are true, Collin and Stetson tested out this rocket launcher live on Facebook!

Here’s what Collin had to say about the Marky Sparks Rocket Launcher:

“This toy is actually really fun (for both kids and adults!) and surprisingly a good workout, plus I love that it gets you outside. Stetson and I have no idea if the rockets truly shot up 200 feet, but they definitely went pretty high.

On the downside, one of the things we noticed right away was the kink in the orange tube, which a lot of reviewers complained about too. I think it’s mainly due to poor packaging. Stetson and I both agree this toy is super CHEAP! Like literally, it feels like Dollar Tree quality—sorry Marky Sparks!

I would have given this toy a higher rating if it was under $10 but it just feels too cheap. Nonetheless, it is really fun to launch and did work well for us regardless of the cheap material!” 

• Collin’s overall rating – 5 out of 10
• Stetson’s overall rating – 6 out of 10

Stetson loved launching these foam rockets into the sky! This blast pad can be used year-round (as long as your kiddos like being outside in winter) for entertainment that never ends.

These are some cons reviewers mentioned to look out for:

    • The launcher tube came bent making it more prone to cracking/breakage.
    • Broke the very first day of using it.
    • Cheap quality and not worth your money.

    Question: would you be able to use the 5/$15 BBB mailer coupon on this item to bring it down to 14.99?

    My son received this for a birthday gift, and it’s seriously so cool! My kids love playing with it (and to be honest – I really love playing with it, too!).

      Yay! You’re so very welcome! Thank YOU for the helpful tip! Hope your boys love it!

    I seriously considered this toy (not this exact brand) a while ago but read a couple of reviews saying this can be dangerous since it can badly hurt kids’ eyes if they are too close to it when it launches. So that might be something to consider. Personally, I’m going to wait till my kids are older to buy this for them. Hope this helps someone.

    We have the dueling stomp rockets and they are a huge hit! So easy to travel with too, so we bring it to get togethers over the summer. Even the adults have fun with it. After a lot of use, the foam blades are starting to tear on the rockets, so I might need to replace them, but our unit was delivered in great shape (no collapsed tubing). I highly recommend the dueling ones because the kids love to do them together.

    I purchased a different brand on amazon and it is definitely much better quality than this one. It was only $15 also and all the kids love it.
