19 Shootable Toys

From Handheld Candy Canons to Kiddy Chain Guns

— March 18, 2014 — Life-Stages
Any parent looking to find creative ways to settle rivalries between their children is in luck, because these shootable toys allow youths to hash out their disagreements in a safe, yet playful manner.

While weapons are definitely no laughing matter, the need to release aggression has prompted retailers to create gun-like toys that allow users to conveniently express their impulses in a much less violent approach. Toys such as water guns, launchers and crossbows allow children to engage in communal play that promotes active engagement in a secure manner, allowing rivalries or fights to be settled in a more playful way.

From hybrid laser toys to foam-shooting rifles, these shootable toys will surely entice any active child looking to add some excitement to their recreational activities.
