We dug deep for this after seeing it on TikTok a while ago. What you see here is a rocket garden sprinkler. Its origin appears to be in China which shouldn’t come as a surprise. It does not appear to have an official name either. Every retailer we saw just refer it to Rocket Garden Sprinkler but keep in mind this is not an actual garden sprinkler.
I think some of the listings on Amazon describe it best as Rocket Garden Sprinkler Outdoor Yard Summer Toy. That said, we are just going with this namesake for the rest of the article. Well, not that we have a whole lot to say about it.
The cartoonish rocket is made of ABS and has fins made of EVA materials. It is water powered, obviously, and comes with a launch base. The water hose and the adapter required to connect to your garden faucet are not included.
According to some listings, this little guy can get up to 1.6-1.8 meters (about 5.2-5.9 feet) high but in reality, how high it can go depends on the water pressure.
The Rocket Garden Sprinkler Outdoor Yard Summer Toy has a sprinkler top that throws out water 360 degrees for kids to have fun. But that is all there is to it.
We feel like we need to reiterate that it is a water-powered summer toy, not a sprinkler have some folks have mistaken it to be. Clearly, as a sprinkler, this thing will not cover much ground.
The Rocket Garden Sprinkler Outdoor Yard Summer Toy can be found in abundance on the Chinese e-commerce platform, Taobao.com, and retails for 30-50 yuan (around US$4.23-7.06) plus shipping. It can also be found being sold on Amazon but at a premium of about 30 bucks.
