What are Orbeez Gel Blasters and why are they great for Kids?

Introduction: The Rise of Orbeez Gel Blasters

In the realm of recreational toys and activities, few toy guns have risen to prominence as quickly as the Ozbeez Gel Blaster. A seamless blend of fun, exercise, and creativity, Gel Blasters are the newest entrants that have taken the toy world by storm, particularly resonating with children.

But what makes them so attractive, and why are they considered great for kids?

Understanding the Orbeez Gel Blaster

At its core, a Gel Blaster is a toy gun that shoots water-absorbent polymer balls, commonly referred to as gel balls or orbees. These balls are environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and biodegradable, making them safe for children and the environment.

Safety First: A Parent's Dream

Parents are always on the lookout for toys that are not only fun but also safe. Gel Blasters address this concern remarkably well:

  1. Non-toxic Ammunition

The gel balls are made from super-absorbent polymer, which ensures they're harmless if accidentally ingested.

  1. No Hard Impact

Unlike traditional toy guns that shoot plastic pellets, gel balls break upon impact, minimising any risk of injury.

  1. Environmentally Friendly

The biodegradable nature of gel balls means there's no litter left behind, making Gel Blasters an eco-conscious choice.

Fostering Teamwork and Strategy

Beyond mere fun, Gel Blasters offer children an opportunity to engage in team-based activities. Much like paintball or airsoft, players often form teams, fostering collaboration, strategy formulation, and collective decision-making – skills that are invaluable as they grow older.

The Fitness Factor: Active Play for Active Kids

In an era where screen time often trumps outdoor play, Gel Blasters encourage children to be active. Running, ducking, and strategising on the move ensures that kids get their daily dose of physical activity, promoting healthier lifestyles.

Creativity and Customisation: Let Their Imagination Run Wild

One of the standout features of Gel Blasters is the ability to customise. From choosing colours to adding accessories, children get a chance to express their creativity. This customisation not only adds to the play value but also allows kids to develop a sense of ownership and pride in their unique creations.

Economic Value: Fun Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank

While many high-quality toys come with hefty price tags, Orbeez Gel Blasters offer exceptional value for money. The initial investment in a Gel Blaster can provide countless hours of entertainment, and the cost of gel balls is minimal, ensuring that fun remains continuous without burning a hole in the pocket.

Orbeez Gel Blasters – The Ideal Choice for Modern Play

Orbeez Gel Blasters represent the pinnacle of modern recreational toys. They seamlessly blend safety, fun, fitness, creativity, and economic value. Whether you're a parent looking for the perfect gift or a child eager for endless hours of entertainment, Gel Blasters emerge as the undisputed choice.

1.     What is a BB gun used for?  BB guns are mostly used for practice shooting and training. The stronger ones (i.e. Air Rifles) can also control pests or hunt small animals.

2.     Do you need a Licence in the UK for a BB gun? No, you don't need a licence for a BB gun in the UK, but there are rules. The BB Gun needs to be in two colours; one has to be a primary. All our guns are on the website as per default.

3.     Is a BB gun a good weapon?   BB guns, despite sometimes being seen as toys, can be dangerous. They fire pellets at high speeds and can cause serious harm, or even be deadly in some situations.

4.     Can you shoot BB guns in public in the UK without a Firearm license? BB guns in the UK navigate a legal grey area. While certain models, notably low-power 'soft air' types, typically evade classification as section 1 firearms, more potent versions may require a valid firearms certificate to avoid legal repercussions.

5.     Can you shoot a BB gun in your garden? You can use a BB gun in your garden under UK law, but you have to ensure the pellets don't go into your neighbour's yard, plot or land. If they do and you don't have permission, it's against the law.

6.     Which UK law am I breaking if the pellets go into my neighbour's law without permission?  If your BB gun pellets go into your neighbour's yard without permission, you're breaking UK laws. Specifically, the 1968 Firearms Act and possibly the 2003 Anti-Social Behaviour Act, because you may be causing your neighbours trouble or worry.
