The Rocket

122 W. Michigan Ave., Ypsilanti; 734-483-2291; therocketypsi.com

The Rocket specializes in the twin childhood joys of candy and gag gifts, pairing a huge selection of bulk candy (including such retro favorites as root beer barrels and rock candy) with an assortment of humorous novelty gifts and toys. The themes of pirates, zombies, bacon and mustaches are in abundance, along with vintage and replica tin toys, metal lunchboxes and whimsical kitchenwares. Hey, why not try a unicorn mask or the world's largest underwear on for size? Shopping is simple at the Rocket — just get your sugar high on and go haywire.
