This is a cute toy that could be great for boys and girls. All you need is a rubberband and then it actually goes pretty far up in the air. It also has a light that glows so you can do itduring the day or night. It was neat launching it in the air in our huge yard. The kids loved looking for it after it came down. Great product that I might consider again. I received this product for free in exchange for my complete and honest review.
