About 10 years ago I bought TEN mini rockets for £2 !!

Trouble was there was no delay after lighting them !!

The moment I lit them they shot off screeching !!

I only tried 2 of them as I was a nervous wreck ( I dunked the others in a bucket of water )

They are the most annoying things.
My Staffie hates them, I dare not leave him for a second or he panics once they're going off.

He has to be right close to me or stretched over my knees.

Awful things.

I can understand why kids - ie. ones under the age of 10 - would find them 'magical' or whatever but you can distract those with bloody Peppa Pig and your Disney+ subscription instead

It has literally sounded like rapid gun fire for hours tonight here. Swear you could actually shoot someone tonight and no-one would bat an eyelid

I wonder if these are the source of those BOOMS ??


With those huge rockets they explode 30 metres /yards up in the sky but with these new batteries they look as though theyíre exploding on the ground to get the height !??

If so they will sound more louder , surely ?

Agreed.

In my household we really have to calm our Cat down when the Fireworks go off as her natural instincts are to start running around all panicked which is horrible to see her that way.
