Good Clean Outdoor Fun with Gel Blaster Surge REVIEW

There's nothing parents love more than seeing their offspring running around enjoying some outdoor fun. Let's face it, it offsets the guilt about their screen time. My tribe are not into football or other traditional outdoor games but they do love to blast tiny plastic tubes at each other. I am less keen on clearing up those flipping things which get EVERYWHERE so imagine my delight when I was gifted two  Gel Blaster Surge toys (AD) which allow them to play in a way they enjoy while leaving no mess for me to clean up (or to wreck the lawnmower!)

"But it looks messy" I hear you say. Never fear! The rechargeable Gel Blaster SURGE shoots non toxic eco-friendly, non irritating water based beads or “Gellets” that burst on impact leaving only droplets of water. This innovative blaster is ready to blast straight out of the box – fully charged with a hopper full of hydrated Gellets, a lower velocity barrel and barrel changing tool and gellet refills.

Think airsoft but with no pain, stain or clean up, bring the battle to the garden, park, beach, campsite or anywhere else you can think of. All you need to do is soak them in water for 2+ hours and watch your ammo grow! 

I can't remember the last time my children (aged 14 upwards) were so excited about a product. Even my 27-year-old was keen to try them out. I was excited too and decided I would have the first shot - at my 18-year-old who wasn't expecting it. I think I may have found an effective way to wake him up in the morning!

With the high velocity barrel on the gellets have really good range and we enjoyed some target practice in the garden and in the street seeing just how far those bad boys can go! You can choose single shot or the very satisfying rapid fire mode.

A note for those with more sensitive children - at close-medium range the pellets can sting slightly when they make contact so if it's a little too much for them I suggest you swap out the barrel for the reduced velocity barrel (included in the box) for a lighter experience. Whichever barrel you choose always wear the safety glasses and never aim at pets, unsuspecting passers by or passing wildlife.

We love the Gel blasters and plan to take them on our camping trip for some good clean fun outdoors.  The pack comes with a refill pack and additional gellets can be bought online. You can subscribe for a regular delivery and save money. You can also get a Gellet Depot which holds up to 10,000 gullets with a built in water strainer and speed loader.

Here's everything you need to know about the Gel Blaster Surge.



Product features.
