Water Play Toys from the Entertainer

When the days are hot and the sun is blasting on the garden, there is nothing kids love more than playing with water, whether it be in a paddling pool, water guns or another form of water, the children just love getting wet and cooling off in the heat.  Addo toys have come up with a fabulous range of Storm Blasters water guns covering various sizes and price points all available from The Entertainer.


We tried out the Hurricane Warrior, the largest water gun at £10 which can fire up to 10m and holds 2000ml.  We also had the mid range Tornado Trooper  at £6 which fires up to 7m and holds 1000ml and then the smaller Jet Stream which retails for just £2!


The children were so excited to try these out and spent the evening soaking each other and informed me that “These are the best water guns ever mummy!”.

They certainly did blast out a lot of water and were quite powerful but in the hot weather the kids love it and they are being active with plenty of running around.

Something completely new and different for us is the Zuru Bunch O Balloons which are basically water bombs.  There are 100 balloons split into three bunches.  To blow up each bunch you simply attach a hosepipe to the top, turn it on and the balloons instantly inflate and as the weight of them drops down you do a sharp tug of the hose and the balloons release from the sticks and self seal with the bands around them.

This is such a clever idea which the kids loved.  They couldn’t wait to get started and they were giggling throughout their water fight.  The balloons are a fun idea and just adds a bit of extra excitement into an afternoon of water play.

As you can see my two children just love water play in the garden and it’s a great way to get kids outdoors and cool off in the Summer months.

I have one of the Storm Blasters water guns from Addo to giveaway (model will vary dependent on stock availability) so enter below for the chance to win:
