Discovery Space Center
OK, so colonizing Mars and the moon has become less of a priority for NASA and the human race, but that shouldn't stop your little ones from creating their own colonization plans! Let your kids take home the adventure of space exploration via this highly-detailed, 4-level spaceship including lift-off rocket that provides jet fuel for imaginative explorations (and colonization) into any galaxy and beyond. Astronauts and aliens are included and add to the fun and excitement of lifting off into the wide unknown.

We really like this toy because it stands 2.5 feet tall once assembled, higher and more imposing than many other rocket spaceship toys we have reviewed. With 37 pieces that require some light assembly, hours of interactive and self-directed play time are assured. With many toys, you only get the main structure and need to purchase the accessories, such as figures and set pieces, separately. Not with this toy. It includes the main discovery space center, of course, but also comes complete with astronauts and aliens, so the inevitable space battle is sure to ensue immediately after the toy is unpacked.
