From arts and crafts, toys, clothing, hats, jewelry, furniture and many more items there is always something for everyone including a Marshmallow Blaster Shooter by Mike Calver.
This is the safe version of a paintball gun by sticking a marshmallow in the back hole and then blowing the back end where the marshmallow is placed with your mouth in order to shoot the marshmallow. “It’s a lot of fun for the kids, it’s safe and plus it’s very cheap,” said Calver.
