The StixToy Gun is made with stay-at-home dads in mind. The brainchild of Colin O’Dowd, a young designer and father who recently graduated from Central Saint Martins, it is a simple framework that helps people, specifically dudes with children, make rubberband weaponry on the fly.

Whether used with pens and pencils or twigs found outdoors, the StixToy Gun is a fun toy that fathers can teach their offspring to play with. Made in collaboration with Method Design Lab and Firebox, "the mission is to encourage fathers to share and teach their children in a playful way," according to Cool Hunting, while emphasizing "the re-use of and recycling of everyday objects that might otherwise be considered waste."
