Space-obsessed kids can get ready to reach for the stars!

MGA Entertainment’s Little Tikes Adventure Rocket is a pretend-play rocketship designed for kids ages 2 and up that offers aspiring astronauts a whole galaxy of fun and interactive activities. The durable, plastic rocketship stands nearly 4 feet tall and is open on one side, showing the ship’s interior elements. It is also big enough for multiple kids to play in at the same time.

The playset is packed with features for kids to explore, including a star viewer screen, a chair, a telescope, an escape hatch they can crawl through, a control center with lights and sounds, and an outer maintenance panel with “wires” that kids can disconnect and reconnect.

In addition to these built-in features, the rocket comes with some play accessories, including two “space rocks,” tweezers, a hammer, and a magnifier. All of these elements combine for nearly endless imaginative play potential, as kids can create and act out their own space explorations. They can pretend to visit the real planets in our solar system, or make up their own intergalactic destinations to explore.

If kids have an astronaut dress-up outfit at home, or if they make their own astronaut helmet to wear while playing in the rocket ship, it will elevate the experience even more.

It is worth noting that this playset does require some adult assembly before it is ready to take off. You will need a few tools from home to complete the rocket, including a screwdriver, a hammer, and tweezers. The ship comes with step-by-step printed instructions, but there is also an official assembly video for those who prefer visual instruction. The process is fairly straightforward and should take an adult about 30-40 minutes. Be sure to follow each step carefully to ensure that the rocket is assembled correctly. If you build it correctly, the rocket is super sturdy.

Overall, this set is a visually impressive piece that is sure to be the *star* of any playroom. The set costs $179.99, which is a worthy investment for the hours of engaging play that this set offers.
