The Balloon Powered Boat is a true children’s classic. Blow up the balloon and watch your boat jet across the water! By simply filling the balloon with air you can send your boat off into the “open seas” or even your bath tub! Just place the balloon over the cylinder on the boat, blow into the small pipe to inflate the balloon, cover the tail pipe with your finger until you place the little boat in the water and watch as it zooms away. Everyone will want to try this fun balloon powered boat and a lesson in air propulsion has never been this much fun!

Ages: 4 years and up.
