Bunch O Balloons Slingshot Review (Zuru)

Bunch O Balloons Slingshot
What It Is

If you're hoping to get a little more distance in your water balloon fights this summer, then you might want to check out the Bunch O Balloons Slingshot. This toy can launch water balloons up to 130 feet, and it comes with three Bunch O Balloons so that you can easily fill 100 water balloons in 60 seconds.

If you don't know how Bunch O Balloons work, they are a bunch of water balloons attached to plastic sticks attached to a hose connector. Once screwed onto any standard hose, you turn the water on to fill up all of the water balloons at once. The balloons are self-sealing, so all you have to do is remove them from the sticks, and you're good to go.

Once you have your water balloons ready, hold the handle of the Slingshot, load a water balloon into the fabric pouch, pull back, aim, and fire. 

Is It Fun?

As with all Bunch O Balloons, we like that these water balloons let kids (or adults) get to the fun part of water balloons. Throwing them, not filling them! And with the Slingshot launcher, kids can get really good distance for far-off targets. Ours flew about 100 feet. 

The only downside is that, unlike simply throwing the water balloons, loading the Slingshot takes some time between launches. And if you're playing with other people who are throwing the water balloons by hand, they could probably hit you several times with water balloons in the amount of time it takes you to load your one. So even though you do get good distance with this one, it's not ideal for close-range water battles, and we think that a lot of kids will prefer to simply throw their water balloons. 

Who It’s For

The Bunch O Balloons Slingshot is for ages 6 and up. Kids who like having water balloon fights will like the distance they get from this slingshot launcher and the speed with which they can fill the water balloons.

What To Be Aware Of

The Slingshot comes with three sets of Bunch O Balloons. Additional ones are sold separately.

Even though the Bunch O Balloons are biodegradable, you will end up with a lot of little broken balloon pieces all over your backyard. You'll probably want to pick up after yourself if you can't stand looking at them all over your yard or if you have a pet.
