Here’s to the grandparents, whose JOB it is to feed the kids way too much sugar, AND arm them to be sure that there’s chaos in their parents’ house !!

Very nice !

I hope the one in the middle is for Grandpa. I’m sure the grandkids will love them as much as my students do Bob. Merry Christmas.

Wow, never expected them to make the daily top 3. Gramps and granny had to test run them before they were wrapped. They are fun. Just which they looked as good as DMcKays.

Liking this one. It looks very fun. How’s the actual performance? It seems like it would be tough to shoot something as light as a ping ball straight without a barrel. Then again, my kids aren’t really looking for bulls-eye accuracy when they jump me with similar toys. Well done.

I believe it CR1. I made a Slingshot from medical tubing that was pretty lethal. Neither of my kids can draw it just yet luckily. I posted a catapult that turned a Skittle into a pretty scary thing. Laws never surprise me. Are lawn darts still banned? I’m all for Darwin weeding out the gene pool on some of these. :)
