The Stomp Rocket Ultra and Stomp Rocket Junior are some of my favorite activities to use with children. While they recommend you use these toys outside, with a few precautions (moving breakable items), I think the Stomp Rocket Junior can be a perfect activity for working on gross motor development while inside. It’s a great way for ALL children to use those “big” muscles while inside on a rainy or snowy day.
Children with low muscle tone are easily enticed by this toy and can work on jumping with two feet, landing on a target, as well as other developmental goals. Children with special needs can also use the Stomp Rocket Junior to enhance their visual-tracking skills. Both Stomp Rockets attract all children which can be a helpful aid for children working on social skills. Every child using the Stomp Rocket will improve their understanding of cause and effect and most importantly, it’s fun!
