The folks over at Blaster Labs managed to get some surprisingly advanced info on a couple of new dart guns that Zuru will be adding to its X-Shot 2015 range — a full year ahead of their official release.
Most homes with a decent arsenal of foam dart weaponry probably have a ‘don’t shoot them at people’ policy which will be a little easier to abide by with the X-Shot Bug Attack line, because kids are encouraged to use them to take out wall-walking bugs instead of siblings. Two Bug Attack guns were revealed to Blaster Labs: a $US13 double-barreled shotgun called the Eliminator, and a $US10 pistol called the Rapid Fire that both include eight darts as well as Zuru’s Creepeez wall crawlers.
Kids are encouraged to throw the Creepeez at a wall, and then shoot the sticky toy bugs down as they slowly walk their way towards the ground. It’s not only a clever way to sell two toy lines at once, it’s also a great way to hone kids skills for when the spring rolls around and it’s time to target the real-life creepy crawlies inevitably invading their homes.
