I ended buying this product to replace a rocket my son lost. He was using his friends and shot one of the rockets where we could not find it. So I bought this to replace the rocket my son lost. Overkill, I admit. But the other boy loved his toy. Before I got home from work my 5 year old son was outside zinging his rockets around. They make a cool whistling sound as they rocket through the air. It looked like so much fun I begged my son to let me try it. I shot it a few times and found it fun as heck. So I would say this is a great product. The shooter and rockets are quality made. The only thing to keep in mind is you will lose one or two rockets. You can keep the range down to within 25 feet but most kids will probably do the max and hence lost rockets. So I would recommend this product. I purchased it for $13.42 on June 30, 2014.
I ended up buying this because I had so many vacuums that never were quite perfect. Either they were too heavy, too loud, hose not long enough, too difficult to push, not versatile enough. I bought one of the first generation Shark rechargeable floor vacuums about 10 years ago. I loved that product but eventually (maybe after 6 months) the battery would not charge and it had some other problem. But for the price and for ease of use I loved Shark products. For the next 10 or so years more Shark products came out and none of them seemed to strike my fancy and I was a bit leary since my previous experience was good but I thought their quality was poor. My mom (who lives with me) needed a vacuum and I recommended a few to her. She ended up buying the Shark I am reviewing. I was quite upset and thought she was foolish to have bought the shark. I never used hers and kept using my Sears vacuum. Long story short. I used hers a few times (after she had it around 2-3 years) and was quite surprised. I can be a bit stubborn. So I ended up buying one for myself. It is small, quieter than most, strong suction, has a long enough hose for reaching, and does a great job. I can vacuum our floor in about 10 minutes without much sweat. With my Sears vacuum it took much longer and I was normally sweating when done. Only drawback is it does accumulate hair around the brusher, but that only needs cutting out maybe twice a year. Based on my mom' Shark and reviews I ended up not buying the newest model of this Shark. This one does a great job at a pretty good price. I put my perfectly good Sears vacuum on the sidewalk with a Free sign on it. update: Our cord got damaged when someone closed the Shark while the cord was was in the place where the floor brush extends and closes. I purchased it for $159.00 on April 20, 2014.
