Random Cool Gadget: Double Barreled Marshmallow Shooter

Random Cool Gadget: Double Barreled Marshmallow Shooter

My younger son bought my older son a cool Nerf gun with easy-load clips for his recent birthday … my younger son already has a chain-load Nerf blaster he got for his birthday earlier this year. The result? A weekend filled with Nerf darts flying everywhere! And – especially with the new one – those things can still hurt when they hit!

Last summer our kids had built PVC-pipe marshmallow launchers, neither of which worked well, but they looked cool and still get used as guns and other weapons on a regular basis.

It was against this backdrop that I saw this cool new toy. Here is the description:

Ideal for pillow fort point defense, this is the double-barreled crossbow that harmlessly shoots marshmallows up to 30′. Equally suited as an offensive weapon for assaulting treehouses or a sibling’s doll house, when the string is pulled back and released, an attached plunger compresses air in the firing chamber, launching a mini-marshmallow from one barrel at a time. Up to 25 mini-marshmallows fit in each magazine, enabling rapid fire. The twin magazines are dishwasher-safe. Ages 6 and up. 19″ L x 29″ W x 6 1/2″ H. (1 lb.)

Aside from being really cool looking, this is less painful to get hit with than a Nerf dart … but during summer will inevitably become a sticky mess! Still one of the cooler things I have seen recently!
