Just when I thought I'd seen it all. Toilet Paper Blasters.

Jakks Pacific came out with these last year I think. Two are listed, the "Skid Shot" and the "Sheet Storm". I'm not sure they strictly qualify as water blasters, they shoot something wet at least. Though judging by the small size of the water reservoirs nobody's going to get really soaked by one.

That's hilarious. I'm sure 3rd graders everywhere are rejoicing at this. Looks like they liberally took aesthetic ques from Nerf.

The first thing I thought of was that prank where you take a toilet paper roll and attach it to a blow dryer, hahaha. But this is more like a spitball launcher. I wonder if these will sell well or not. It certainly seems like something that kids would like, if they're anything like I was when I was young, haha.

But this does remind one that there are more than just the five standard war games. Lots of people play airsoft, paintball, nerf, laser tag and of course water wars, but there are many other potential war games as well. I remember having a pair of marshmellow blasters when I was little. You've also got rubber band guns, ball launchers, and who knows what else. Would be funny if there was another obscure community out there that is devoted to hardcore marshmellow gun wars or something.

Rubber band guns were super popular in Cambridge Assassins back in the day. Probably still are. I had a sweet double-barrelled one but it never worked properly, and a more ordinary pistol which did work well.

My cousins had rubber band guns. I remember that they looked so cool. The advantage of rubber band guns is that you can fight inside while ammo is also incredibly cheap. The sting is also a little more than a stock nerf blaster and you don't have to worry about it breaking anything.
