==Playwrite Mini Water Pistols=+
Children love to play with water and I must say that there is nothing better than running around the garden on a hot day squirting each other with water pistols. This is okay until someone wants to stop and the other doesn't and before you know it, it ends in tears (the best games always do).
However that said I still like to have an array of different types of water pistols for Jack to play with in both our garden and my mums garden when he is visiting there. Not only does he like to play with someone else a soaking game but he likes to line up a few empty tin cans on the bench and shoot them down and also pretend he is in Star Wars and shooting the baddies.
There Playwrite Mini Water Pistols caught my eye because of there small size. The ones I have look slightly different to the ones in the picture shown above but they are made by the same people and probably even more mini than the ones shown.
The idea behind these tiny water guns is that they can be put into your pocket and are perfect for creeping up on people! I was able to buy a single gun from down in my local toy shop for 75p which seemed liked a great price. Having had a look online I can see that these seem to mostly be sold in multi-packets for party bags and the like and for 10 cost around the £5 region so cheap and ideal for party gifts and I will be keeping this in mind for Jack's next birthday party.
The mini pistols themselves are all made of plastic but to be fair it seems like pretty strong stuff and all the joins in the plastic are done well and don't create any real leakage when there is water inside the gun. We have bought a few water pistols from Poundland recently and found them to be so bad we shan't bother trying out there water guns in the future. These Playwrite guns so appear to be put together well and filling the gun up with water is really easy too.
The whole gun is only 5 cm in length so as you can imagine it doesn't actually hold much water inside but there is enough for a good couple of big squirts. I have to say how impressed I was with the shooting range of the gun and when comparing it to other larger ones we have bought from Poundland this mini one is far better for getting a longer shot which did surprise me.
All in all this little gun is really going strong and is a firm favourite of Jack's in the garden. Okay so it doesn't hold much water and isn't going to out shoot the likes of a super soaker but the fact that it is lightweight and the perfect size to fit in the pocket means that it is perfect sneaky material. All in all for the price you really can't go wrong and as I say this sort of thing bought is bulk is ideal for those party bags!
I think a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a very high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
