Yesterday while wandering a local high end toy store I found an interesting
"toy" rocket that I believe is baking soda and vinegar powered. It was
called a Retro Rocket, CCCP 03, and indicated it was a model of a 1937
Soviet rocket. Sound familiar? There was another rocket called a Meteor, and
a land rocket kit that used 2 2 liter pop bottles. Each was about $20.
The manufacturer was Scientific Explorers, 10800-900-1182, no web site
Peter Alway needs to check this out for accuracy :-)
BTW, the store is Creative Fun Toys, in Lake In The Hills. They also have
stores in Wauconda, Woodstock, and McHenry. Everything is 20% off this
weekend. I picked up a Mercury Atlas for $40. They still had a Phantom 4K
starter set for list (minus the discount), but my wife cleaned them out of
motors a year ago. www.creativefuntoys.com
