We live in Houston and so to have a love affair with the Space Shuttle and NASA is not unheard of. In fact, the whole city stopped when we got a shuttle to display proudly in our city!
So when I was approached to review the Jr. Space Shuttle Inflatable Toy by AeromaxToys.com, I could not wait to get it and see how much my kids loved it. I just imagined them flying to the moon, soaring through space and using their imagination to find never before seen places!
That is the point of toys, isn’t it? To help your children expand their imagination?
We received the Shuttle and my husband inflated it. It was an INSTANT hit! Unbeknownst to me, one of their cartoon characters had flown to the moon and so they immediately jumped into reenacting that trip! It easily held my three daughters – who probably have a combined weight of about 90 lbs, the recommended limit on the shuttle – and the realistic dashboard and markings made them feel like they were real astronauts!
They loved it so much on land that my husband took them and the shuttle to the pool! This was FANTASTIC for all three of the girls! They hopped on and floated around and everyone at the pool commented on how awesome their unique float was! We take it to the pool almost every time now!
If you have a little space cadet at home and want to give them something to help their imagination soar all the way to space then check out the Jr. Space Shuttle! It is durable (it has held up to my three crazies), has real looking markings, fun on land or water and a great toy to use to teach about space!
