This launch pad and space shuttle are sure to spark real conversation with children about science and space exploration and will make an excellent teaching opportunity about the big questions kids have about the cosmos.
Shuttle Sound Effects are Out of This World
Three different sound effects on the shuttle make this a truly interactive experience. When your child is ready to take the shuttle into space, press the button at the bottom of the shuttle and listen as the boosters roar into action. Moments later solar "pings" begin to echo from the shuttle reminiscent of a weightless object orbiting planet earth. Fit the space characters on the outside wings or on top of the cockpit, and turn them left and right to activate sound effects, like the opening of the giant shuttle cargo bay or rocket boosters kicking into high hear.
Interaction is the Name of the Game
Your junior space-racer will enjoy hours of fun fitting the space figures into five different platforms on the shuttle and launch pad and controlling the many different functions. As liftoff approaches, fit the figure on the elevator platform and move up to the third level. Another platform lets you open the shuttle's individual cargo doors by turning the figure left and then right. It's the perfect balance of hands-on interaction and sound effects that will take your child's imagination to new heights.
