Santa brought Critter a great toy. It was a very thoughtful toy for an active 9 year old boy.
One that could be used outside.
One that would require muscles and exercise.
One that keeps getting stuck in the @#%!@#$%!@%# trees.
Its called a Stomp Rocket. Aptly named, you stomp on an air bladder (snort! She said ‘Bladder’!) and it propells a plastic ‘rocket’ into the air. The harder you stomp, the farther and higher it flies.
Critter loves his Stomp Rocket.
Yes! I did it! I did it! Right in the Poplar Tree! Woooo Hoooo!
(It falls out on its own from the 50′ poplar tree, and he reloads.)
Hey! Mom! I have a great idea! If it happens again, you go get the ladder and I’ll get the rocket out, ok?
