Frequently asked questions.
Gel Ball Guns:
What are they?
Gel Ball Guns are toys they fire water soaked gel balls.
Gel balls are very tiny and you must soak them in water for 3 or 4 hours until they grow to the correct size.
The gel balls are also biodegradable, and are often used by gardeners and florists to hydrate their plants.
Are they safe?
With any blaster that shoots anything, be it water, paint, gel balls, or foam darts, you will always be required to wear eye protection when playing with them. However, in terms of whether or not they will hurt, yes and no. If you’re butt naked and you get hit by our blasters, yes it might sting a little, but it will only last for a little while. If you were wearing clothes, it will feel like you’re getting flicked. If you’re wearing full gear, you’ll feel it bounce or explode off you, but it will not leave any marks and will not hurt at all.
Are they legal?
Yes they are legal as they are toy guns. For law about gel ball blaster guns in Australia please click Gel Ball Blaster Import Treatment – Australia . For buyers of gel ball blasters outside of Australia please check your state laws before purchasing item.

How do you store Gel Balls?
Gel balls generally take 3-4 hours to fully hydrate. When storing them, generally what people like to do is store them in the fridge to keep their size. Heat, or more specifically dry heat, will make them shrink. That’s why you never leave them in direct sunlight.
