About

DayRocket brings an end to those ho-hum, “what can we do” hours leading up to the BIG show.  With just a couple dollars’ worth of firecrackers, your whole family can have a blast launching multiple rockets ALL DAY LONG – while the steaks are grilling in the background.  Nothing puts a smile on someone’s face like the exhilaration of watching a rocket launch over 100 feet into the air (sometimes almost out of sight) only to be followed up with, “Can we do that again!?”

Here’s how it works:

Simply take any standard firecracker…

Place it in the launch Base, maneuvering the fuse through the fuse slot and place one of the projectiles onto the Base.

CAN YOU CATCH IT?!

“The Fusion of Model Rocketry and Fireworks” is not just a tag line.  It is the truth.  We’ve taken the same allure that ignites creativity and innovation in Model Rockets and combined it with one of our favorite pastimes – fireworks.  Only now you won’t need hours to assemble or vast open spaces to launch.  DayRocket can be loaded in seconds and launched right in your own driveway, cul-de-sac or street.  And it usually lands within 50 feet of the Base.  So FUN.  So ADDICTIVE.

The initial DayRocket package comes with a beautiful Spinner, a handsome replica of a .50 Cal Bullet, the safe, versatile launching Base, and of course clear and easy to follow instructions.  When you buy fireworks, when was the last time you received instructions!?

We have MULTIPLE projectiles in development for the vertical launch position.  Projectiles like:  

  • Whistlers
  • Glow-N-Dark
  • Apollo 13
  • Parachute & Streamer Recovery
  • And many more than can be listed here!

Also in development is the DayMissile – an adaption from our current technology that will take performance to a “whole other level”.  These are just a few of the vertical launch projects in work.  Just WAIT until you see what we’re releasing for launch in other orientations.

OUR KICKSTARTER GOAL $13,500

  • $5,500 - Complete our working prototypes and graphic art
  • $5,000 - Complete a professional video for our YouTube and TV campaigns
  • $3,000 - Fulfill rewards for our valued backers

For four years we have perfected the DayRocket’s material, interfacing, and performance.  After many setbacks and challenges, we are so excited to be bringing this project to life – with your support!

EARLIER PROTOTYPES

Whether you’re celebrating Independence Day, New Year’s Day, Labor Day, Cinco de Mayo, Birthdays, Weddings, or Family Reunions – DayRocket is the responsible way to blow something up – ALL DAY LONG!

DayRocket is safe.  DayRocket eliminates fire danger, reduces noise, and prevents the desire to ever hold a lit firecracker.  We take safety seriously.  That is why we invested so much time in ensuring only the best materials are used.  The firecracker is ignited in a controlled apparatus.  There is no fiery projectile being launched into the air - only the DayRocket.

TIMELINE

  • Oct 2014 – Nov 2014:  Complete our working prototypes, graphics and packaging
  • Nov 2014 – Dec 2014:  Complete a professionally produced video ad for YouTube and TV
  • Dec 2014:  Complete the ramp-up for manufacturing
  • Jan 2015 – May 2015:  Manufacturing of our Phase I (DayRocket) product
  • Mar 2015:  Shipping begins!

INFRASTRUCTURE UPDATE

We are so excited about our SharePoint and Office 365 environment.   Foundation is key.  Even during this Kickstarter project, our IT team is building our website www.pyrotechtoys.com and integrating our accounting, customer service, HR, and manufacturing & distribution channels.  How awesome is that!?

THANK YOU

Thank you for your support.  Without our faithful followers we could not do this.  If you decide to become a backer, we at Pyrotechtoys hope you have a BLAST with your DayRocket!!  

Risks and challenges

We understand that with any worthwhile endeavor there will be risks and challenges. This is the very reason we have assembled the best team from product development & marketing, to manufacturing & distribution.

DayRocket has been a four year journey with multiple trials and setbacks. We have successfully risen to the occasion each and every time and are ready to tackle the next challenge. With your support, we will be able to take this next big step.
