Most of us have a favorite toy from when we were young, including the flying toys that still captivate my kids.
Essex Junction, VT (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Turner Toys, a Vermont-based company that specializes in selling “the toys we grew up with,” is pleased to announce the addition of Estes Model Rockets to its wide selection of flying toys. With sixty Estes products in stock, rocket fans can find selections from the Sky Twister Rocket Model Kit to the Customizer Mini Launch Set and everything in between that a model builder will need.
Estes is a leader in model rocketry and shares Turner Toys’ commitment to activities that are fun but also get kids thinking – in this case about physics, chemistry and astronomy. Model rockets are available Ready to Fly (RTF), as easy-to-assemble kits and as more advanced kits that require gluing and painting skills. Model Rocket Launch Sets are a great way to get started with model rocketry because they include everything needed including engines, recovery wadding, ignitors and other accessories. Bulk packs of rockets are available for teachers and groups.
Turner Toys president Peter Sloan bought the company in 2011 because he wanted the same imaginative, top quality toys that he enjoyed available to his children and others today. He said: “Most of us have a favorite toy from when we were young, including the flying toys that still captivate my kids. We are proud to offer the Estes Rockets product line in addition to classic toys such as wooden blocks, log cabin building sets, yo-yo’s, wooden trains, puzzles, doll houses, rocking toys and more.”
Sloan notes that many of the products he carries are made in the USA and are appreciated by both parents and grandparents searching for hands-on toys that kids can learn from, manipulate and enjoy away from TV and computer screens.
