Mentos Dragster


Everyone loves the Diet-Coke© and Mentos© reaction. Now you can use this to propel a car down your driveway or through your yard! Or get the additional boat attachement (not pictured) and have it zip across a pool or lake!

A sturdy construction, includes a contolled drop mechanism that allows the child to drop up to three mentos tablets into the liquid at a time. This toy allows the children to explore basic chemical reactions through experimentation with different amounts of reactants.

Although constructed almost entirely out of sturdy injection-modled plastic with almost no small parts, this toy should be kept out of the reach of children under 5 years of age.
