 My Thoughts~!!

I love these products for they provide my sons with the need to fire weapons without hurting anyone.  Honestly, they do NOT hurt~!!  My youngest daughter is a girly-girl and trust me when I say she would have whined like the dickens had it have even hurt a fraction.  She was relieved as her brothers shot a few her way (between us, I was VERY relieved also!)

ARV $29.95
The kids spent hours playing with the Bow & Mallow, they had tried a couple different versions of the guns and were very excited to try the Bow variety.  I read a tip, in order to keep the marshmallows from sticking, mix one teaspoon of cornstarch for every two cups of marshmallows into a bag and shake it up.  The tip worked better with than without it~!!

There was a bit of jamming but the problems were easily corrected.  As well, the marshmallows are not reusable after firing them once.  Their texture just breaks down and makes the whole system go wonky.

The compartment took about 20 mini-marshmallows, I didn't want the kids stuffing them in so I shied the number a bit so that wouldn't occur.  It was really cute watching my youngest son try to line up his shot to get it into my oldest's sons mouth.  I'm not sure if the sights were off but not many of the targets were reached if there weren't say, about 10 feet within range.

My kids loved their Bow & Mallow Camo Shooter and the hours of fun is worth every penny~!!  This would make a great gift for any child, both young and old~!!  My husband got just as much of a kick out of playing with the Shooter as the kids did~!!
