We recently got the chance to try out two toys from Geospace. The first was the Pump Rocket Bungee Blast Mini and the second was the Air Archer – Air Powered Bow. As soon as they came, Liam was ready to go outside and test them out!
He chose the Air Archer first. I was wondering how well he would do as he has a hard time with arm strength. We’re working on it with his Physical Therapist. As a mom, I knew this toy would be a great therapy tool. I think Miss E will agree. Liam is working on his muscles without realizing it, because to him, it’s just fun. He pulls this back with ease, but it does have enough resistance to make his muscles work. It also encourages hand/eye coordination as well as physical activity, since someone has to go get those rockets! (It’s also waterproof.) We’ve had it for about 2 weeks now, and this is the go to toy when neighbor kids are here. In fact, they all love it so much, often times we have to intervene to make sure everyone gets a turn.
This family is huge Walking Dead fans, so Liam uses the bow to pretend he’s Daryl Dixon. His friends will pretend to be zombies and Liam has to shoot them with the rocket. The foam rockets are soft, and safe to use. I never worry that someone will get hurt when they are playing with it. The rocket will travel far! (Up to 150 feet!)
The Pump Rocket Bungee Blast is fun too! Matter of fact, the kids like to use it to see who can shoot their rockets further. It’s also pretty easy to pull back, and the rocket goes quite far. Daddy and I even get in on the rocket shooting too!
Liam was super pleased with his Geospace toys. As are all the other kids that live around us. They get played with every day, and they have with stood it all. I’d say they are very well made!
I am pleased at how safe they are, and that my son is getting some needed therapy fun and he thinks he’s just playing. 😉
