Inflatable Space Shuttle Review by Rodna Allman

28W079 Industrial Ave.
Lake Barrington, IL 60010

Aeromax Toys is a high-quality theme-oriented specialty toy store. They provide children with everything from lifelike costumes and helmets to inflatable race cars and space shuttles. We were given the opportunity to review and play with their Jr. Space Explorer Inflatable Space Shuttle. The space shuttle is well made. The material is very thick and durable. The design is nice and has Nasa and USA symbols on it. It has a fun, colorful dashboard that encourages children to use their imaginations. It even has a separate inflatable section for a window that makes it appear as if your child is looking out into space and seeing the stars, as well as a satellite and the planet Earth. The rear of the shuttle looks as if fire is coming out of it. The design even extends to the underneath part of the shuttle. The overall design of the space shuttle is well thought out and the quality is exceedingly good. There are even two QR codes on the rocket that can be scanned to watch a launch or an orbit of the earth. The price of the Jr. Space Explorer Inflatable Space Shuttle is $29.99.

This product is intended for boys and girls ages three and over, and up to 90 pounds. It can be used indoors for fun, imaginative space exploration play or in the pool where your children can really feel like they are flying through outer space!

I will be honest and tell you that when I  received this space shuttle in the mail I was very excited because I knew my son would love it, but I was also a little hesitant to let him play on it in fear that he would pop it before he ever got to play with it in the pool. I am happy to say that I was worried for nothing. My son has played with it indoors and in the pool. He is four years old and very rough by nature and this product is still standing. That is a huge testament to the quality of this inflatable space shuttle.

Aeromax Toys is a new name in our household, but one that we will not forget. They have an amazing line of products. They have astronaut suits, helmets, and boots that I cannot wait to buy for my son's birthday. They not only have an entire lineup of astronaut gear and toys, but they also have firefighter, police officer, doctor, and other careers as well. They even carry some of these items for adults.

My son has really enjoyed this shuttle. He especially loves it in the swimming pool. If you have a child that loves outer space as much as mine does, I think you would be incredibly happy with this space shuttle. It is the only product that I have seen in person but if it is any indication of the overall quality of their other products, I encourage you to check them out. I know that I will be buying quite a few products from them in the near future.
