Slingshot Rocket Helicopters

We bought a couple of these slingshot rockets while on holiday in Tenerife, very simple and cheap toys but the kids really love them.

Going out for a walk at night along the beach the kids could fire these off, running after them as they spun gently back down.

Using the catapult you hook the rocket on pull back and fire them as hard as you can vertically into the air. Just make sure there is nothing for them to get caught in or drift into, we had to recover one from a restaurants water feature!

We could get some really good heights out of these very simple toys and we kept the kids entertained for a fair while while we chilled out.

Note: Get your thumb in the way while launching and you can be swearing for some time as your thumb throbs.
