Wacky Wiggler (2)

ESTES Model #2182


Can you say WIGGLE?? The Wacky Wiggler will give you hours of rocket launching fun! Goes up as 1 rocket made of 7 plastic sections that are held together by string, and comes down, still intact though, as pieces! And that a launch system comes with it is just an added bonus! Easy to assemble and comes with all pre-colored parts. And the body tubes are a silver holographic pattern so is super shiny and easy to see in the sky!
