The Zooma Splat X Smack Shot by Imperial Toy.
It is easy to load the smack shot and the boys favorite part is the red light that goes on so you can see what you are aiming at. Check this out. Even before I got this thing out of the box the boys were playing with the light on the smack shot.
Then you load the smack shot and line it up.
And then you let it FLY!
I love this photo so much. You have to look really close, but the Big Guy is so excited that his mouth is open, he has shut his eyes as he let it go and you can just barely see it in motion flying towards the couch. That light orange blur in the center. Too cute.
The boys had so much fun pulling it back and shooting at the target we cut out from the back of the box. The smack shots are soft and stretchy, so I don't have to worry about the kids getting hurt. And you know that I totally read them the riot act about how it doesn't get shot at each other (or the beloved flat screen TV in the living room) ... but I feel good about knowing someone won't (hopefully) lose an eye if someone aims wrong.
The green color smack shot is easier for my kids to launch - they can do the orange color smack shot but it requires a little more strength. Which I am loving actually. With the Big Guy's cerebral palsy (affecting just one side of the body) he has to work just a little bit harder to use it, giving him a little exercise for his arm muscles at the same time. And he doesn't even realize it.
Loving this toy.
