Rocket Yard Stakes
Very good item
Bought for an Independence Day retail store display to bring to mind the first stanza of our national anthem, "And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there." Rockets are metal, not paper and will be reusable which is always a plus. Colors are very good and the details (the fuses at the bottom of the rockets) make them truly realistic looking. Very please with the product!

Cute, but for the price, stakes need improvement
These looked really cute on my front lawn. Very colorful and festive looking. BUT, the stakes are split in half and threaded, so you have to screw them together. The threading is very low quality, and the rocket at the top makes it top heavy, so it is hard to screw them in straight, which strips the threads very easily. So I had to MacGyver 2 of them by breaking some chopsticks in half and duct tape them together like a leg sprint. When I have time I will redo them with more narrow sprints and spray paint them.

Great Rockets-Terrible Ground Stakes
I love these metal rockets and have ordered them two different years for the 4th of July holidays. The rockets themselves are well painted, look great, and withstand wind, rain and sun. The stakes are another matter. PLEASE tell the manufacturer to redesign them. The threaded ends are rusty, too short to adequately fit into the rocket or the ground stake. They break apart when any pressure is applied. The customer should not have to pay for a product and then have to rig it to make it work properly!

Very Poor Quality
Product looked cute in picture, but reality is very expensive for poor quality and poor construction.

The selection was very good
Have been buying from Oriental Trader for years. They help a fun party become a great party with all of the theme decorations they offer

rocket yard stakes
The rocket yard stakes are really cute, but unfortunately the 2 piece stakes that you need to attach to the rockets so they stick into the ground do not tighten up. They appear to just go further to the rod and not attach one part to the other. I've had to secure with tape in order to use them.
