In my house I have three little boys and one big boy. sometimes the big boy (Lee fights with the little boys over their toys). Lee thinks it is cool to shoot things at people and play pranks on his co-workers. One time he rigged up this contraption to hit one of his co-workers in the face with a donut, shoot a rocket at them and make an alarm go off at the same time as soon as he opened the door to turn the lights on at work. They are constantly doing stuff to each other and pulling pranks where he works but it is all in great fun and they are great sports about it.
When I got the chance to review the Marshmallow shooters I knew I was in for a world of trouble, or rather his co-workers were, but I agreed anyways, I after all am a sucker for punishment. The boys are always shooting things at me or spraying me with water so at least I know with the Marshmallow Shooters it won’t hurt when I get hit with the ammo and it is yummy fun for Maddisyn who likes to eat our ammo if she gets ahold of it.
Marshmallow fun company has come up with a great way to play with your food. How about the ultimate food fight with the ability to fire marshmallows at your opponent up to 40 feet away?
We were sent a marshmallow blaster gun. A pump style gun with a 30 foot range firing large marshmallows one at a time at a pretty fast rate of speed. The marshmallow shooter comes in many different patterns for your girl or your boy. The idea for the marshmallow shooter came when Kim and Beaver Raymond were preparing for their son Jake’s 9th birthday party, nearly 6 years ago. As a party favor Beaver and Jake spent half the night assembling marshmallow blowers for each of the 15 guests from PVC pipe. Kim came up with the idea for marshmallows to be used as safe, soft, edible ammo.
The company’s first product was a Marshmallow Shooter that held 25 “rounds” of mini-marshmallows. Originally done in blue and red Classic olor ($24.95). Marshmallow Fun continues to introduce new styles of their now classic product. (Also available in camoe, $24.95, or executive, $29.95, finishes). There is also a Cheetah, Daisy, Skull & Crossbones, Peace and Zebra Shooters.
We were also sent a rapid fire marshmallow shooter called the MForcer which is recommended for ages 6 and up and can be bought at drugstore.com for 22.99, which shoots 15 mini marshmallows consecutively. The MForcer packs all the punch of Marshmallow fun company’s flagship Marshmallow Shooter into a quarter of the size. It is easier to hide behind your back and ambush your sibling, friend or boss. You simply load up to 15 mini-marshmallows into the chamber, give it a quick pump, and the MForcer is set for rapid fire action, there is no need for additional pumping after each shot.
When they arrived it happened to be on Lee’s day off so he wasted no time testing them out and getting the perfect spot to ambush Chase and Blake when they walked in the door from school, they no sooner had their jackets off and we’re being nailed with flying marshmallows from the far side of the dining room table and not having any idea what was going on at first, then they found the second shooter and war broke out in my house, thank god they were only marshmallows lol. The only downfall to the marshmallow shooters in our house is I don’t really think the dog should eat that many marshmallows as she chases them around and eats them before anyone can get them.
I’m sure they are going to get a lot of use this summer and I may have to buy marshmallows by the carton but Lee and the boys love them. Maddisyn is even getting in on it now and called Lee into the bedroom the other day, when he walked around the corner she was standing on the bed pointing the blaster at the door telling Lee she needed Mahmallows (marshmallows). Something tells me we’re going to have to get at least 1 more and Lee was trying to convince me it should be the bow and mallow ($29.95) but he has since discovered the Classic Mazooka and also found the laser sites available on the website as well, ugh I am going to go broke on guns and marshmallows.
Here are some pictures of the boys playing with each other with the guns, I had to bribe them to stop shooting each other long enough to take the pics. Note the dog standing below the kids waiting for them to shoot their ammo.
