Aeromax Space Pack Super Soaking Water Blaster {Review & Giveaway}

Aeromax logoNow that summer is here, my girls have been having a good time riding their bikes up and down the sidewalk, digging in our sand table, and in general enjoying spending time outdoors. There's just something about the fresh air and sunshine that does wonders for their energy levels and moods (and mine, as well).

However, there are often times when their imaginations stall and they need a little inspiration to turn a regular day outside into a creative, fun-filled time. That's when I know that we can beat the heat while providing entertainment, laughter and smiles thanks to the Astronaut Space Pack from Aeromax.

Aeromax Space Pack

Started 15 years ago with one toy, today Aeromax has a product line that boasts 300 (and counting) items and every top toy industry award. And while the toys, dress up clothes, gear and more are great on their own, Aeromax also makes you feel good about your purchase due to their strong belief in charitable giving — they've donated thousands of units to Kids Wish Network and Kids In Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.).

After seeing how much my kids adored zooming off to the moon with Aeromax's Jr. Space Explorer Inflatable Space Shuttle earlier this year, I had absolutely no doubt that they would be thrilled with the ability to combine that fun with blasting water around the yard with the Space Pack.

When this box arrived, the girls were immediately anxious to fill it with water and start spraying!

Aeromax Space Pack review

Designed for ages 5+ and arriving in three simple pieces, the assembly for this Space Pack took less than a minute.

Aeromax Spack Pack

By simply connecting one end of the included hose to the back of the sprayer and the other end to the bottom of the pack...

Aeromax Space Pack assembly

...we were ready to remove the convenient blue cap on the one liter-capacity water tank, fill it, and head outdoors to play.

With two adjustable straps and the ability to hold the sprayer on either side of the body, I appreciated that the Space Pack was easily customizable for children of multiple sizes or who are right- or left-handed. Little Sister B and Big Sister E had no problem slinging it on and shooting off into the distance.

With a simple pump of the front of the sprayer, the water came streaming out of the Space Pack and both of my girls' eyes lit up!

They quickly realized that not only could this blaster shoot water 30 feet, but that by pulling on the trigger right on the sprayer, that it would cause the two nozzles on the front to angle outwards and send the water flying off in two different directions!

Aeromax astronaut water sprayer

While I had realized that one liter was a large amount of water and that the pumping action would produce water pressure, I hadn't been prepared for just how far the Aeromax Space Pack could truly spray...

...and how long it would be until we had to stop playing to fill it again. While we have only used the Space Pack for imaginative adventures that involve touring outer space and shooting at the stars or the "bad guys," this would definitely be an asset in a water fight because your opponent would surely have to stop to reload multiple times before this was anywhere near empty!

For us, the size of the tank and the ability to spray for long periods of time has just equated to more and more fun!

Aeromax Space Pack

The girls have had just as much fun using the Space Pack while racing around the yard as they have while flying on their Jr. Space Explorer Inflatable Space Shuttle. I'm pretty sure we just need astronaut costumes and we'll be ready to give NASA a call.

Aeromax astronaut gear
Sweetly posed because they had explicit instructions to not soak Mommy while I was trying to take a picture. You can tell that Big Sister E is still considering it though, right?

From takeoff to landing, the Space Pack from Aeromax has proved to be an entertaining, durable, fun addition to any space-themed play. The sturdy construction, detailing in the designs and the ease of use all come together for a way for a child to shoot aliens indoors (while empty) or tour the solar system and spray them with water outside.

For any child that enjoys pretend play (especially one that is into outer space, rocket ships and being an astronaut), this is one toy that is sure to bring imaginative, creative, giggling hours on end for years to come. Retailing for $15.95 from Aeromax (as well as on Amazon), I'm looking forward to a summer filled with two happy space explorers thanks to this great accessory.

Thanks to the generosity of Aeromax, one person will soon get to see where the child in their life will blast off to with water fun as well, because...

One lucky person will win a Space Pack Super Soaking Water Blaster from Aeromax!
