The Sproing-a-Rocket would be a toy which would launch into the air, and slowly float back to the ground. Children would be able to launch the toy by compressing and releasing a spring located at the bottom of the Sproin-a-Rocket. Kids could simply launch it and watch it float back to the ground or they could play catch with their friends. The toy uses spring motion and air resistance to fuction. For saftey the tip of the rocket would be rounded and the toy itself would be lightweight so as to ensure that the toy will not injure children if it falls on them.
