One Time Use Toys

We had a group birthday party (very small, really) for three kids with birthdays at the end of may and the beginning of June, and one of the presents was a seven foot tall rocket powered by water pressure. Well, it took a long time to get it set up and launched, and when we did….it promptly lodged itself about 70 feet up in a pine tree known around my sister’s neighborhood as the Charlie Brown kite-eating tree. It already had a football, a baseball, and a big green playground ball…what did it need with a seven foot long rocket?
