Paper Shooters, the firm behind a range of cardboard construct blasters, has launched a fundraising campaign to get its products into stores.

The firm is currently seeking £75,000 in return for 25 per cent equity of the brand, through the crowdfunding site, Crowdcube.

“We aim to revolutionise the toy blaster market, targeting ‘geeks and gamers,’ said Mike Howarth, inventor of Paper Shooters Construction Kit Blasters.

“We have received some great press and interest from major stores and distributors over the last 12 months and are looking to launch into major stores later this year.”

Founded in 2012, Paper Shooters is aimed at kids aged 11 and upwards, firing blast paper ‘spit wad’ ammo, and can fire up to 75 feet.
