Slingshots are classic kid’s toys that the boys may still want to play with. But most parents would not consider it as a safe toy for their kids. There are other safer alternatives to such toys that kids can play with that will not be that much of a concern for parents. Toys like the Splat X Sly Shot comes to mind.
The Splat X Sly Shot is a type of slingshot that may be safer than the classic version of the toy. That is because it fires soft rubber like projectiles to shoot at targets. Kids can have a choice between two Aero Shotz and three Sticky Shotz. Kids can use the Aero Shotz if they wish a projectile with a longer range, up to 100 feet. They also whistle when they fly in the air. The Sticky Shotz can be used for distances up to 75 feet but can also stick into walls and other surfaces.
The slingshot itself comes in a unique and modern design unlike the classic toy. But it is safer for kids to use. But since it uses projectiles to shoot at targets, the Splat X Sly Shot is designed for kids from 8 years old and above. It is available at Toys R’ Us for $5.
