Find out with this soft, age-appropriote water balloon launcher that features comfy handles and enough room to load one or more water balloons. Hold each side, place a water balloon in the middle, stretch and launch. The fun will happen even more quickly with the help of the Pumponator Portable Water Balloon Filling Station (sold separately).
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
Great fun, but cannot launch smaller objects.

I used 3 of these launchers at an event where children were to launch soft balls at a target. The band stretched and worked well , but the pouch to hold the ammo collapsed around the balls. The smaller balls got stuck and were not easily freed from the pouch when released.
Also, for safety, the handles could be softer. They are hollow, hard plastic. As long as your kids hold on tight, you shouldn't have an issue.
Balloon Launcher Toy

I purchased this balloon launcher along with the pump water balloon filler. The balloon launcher is sized properly for little folks, but unfortunately, the launcher doesn't work. When the two side bungees are stretched for a launch, the little pouch holding the balloon collapses around the balloon and the balloon can't get out during the launch. I think the construction has a design flaw that doesn't allow the fabric launching pouch to remain open sufficiently for the balloon to fly out. I bought these toys for my grandchildren to play with during out July 4th celebration.
Please note, the device operates best with three individuals controlling launch. Two people, a fair distance apart holding the yellow bungee loops firmly, and one person in the center to pull the launch sling back for a rapid balloon release. If balloons still fail to launch, ready your landing gear and visit the Returns & Exchanges Center. We flew in to assist our customer.
