A set of child-friendly paintball toys that got off to a flying start in the US are now making their way to the UK.
The JT SplatMaster product line targets children aged nine and up and features lightweight, spring-loaded weapons that shoot at low velocity and do not require batteries or an air source.
Ammo is 100 per cent biodegradable, non-staining and easy to clean. The shells are water-based, so they’re more fragile and much less painful than usual paintballs.
“The JT SplatMaster line was created to provide a younger demographic, as well as those who don’t currently participate in paintball, a low impact option to ‘ease’ into splat shooting sports. It’s fun, safe and accurate,” said JT?SplatMaster brand manager Mike Lowry. “I encourage all UK toy retailers to give the JT SplatMaster product line a serious look. It provides an excellent opportunity for retailers to offer a unique product that will drive incremental sales with exceptional profit margins.
“The worldwide response to JT SplatMaster has been outstanding.”
In the US, there are more than 3,000 retail stores that carry JT SplatMaster products, including Wal-Mart, K-mart, Academy Outdoor Sports, Bass Pro and MC Sporting Goods, as well an additional 350 Paintball Pro Shops and Paintball Game fields.
JT SplatMaster encourages kids to play with the products in their gardens or in game fields. There are also target shooting and ammo products available.
