Brilliantly entertaining game, shooting targets floating in the air with sucker darts.
Place the soft styrofoam balls onto the target air base, switch on and watch as a current of air makes the balls levitate and float. Now the ultimate shoot out can begin – pull back the yelllow tab, load with the soft foam darts, take aim and fire! As your shooting skills develop, you can even adjust the height of the balls by rotating the small green dials for added difficulty. Effective from about 12 feet and comes with 5 balls - who can hit them first!

Eight year olds like more challenging construction sets, and are starting to get seriously interested in science. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. They can also start doing cleverer magic and love doing tricks. And anything they can throw or shoot at someone else is also very popular.
