A DIY Cardboard Rifle toy that fires 'soft splat' paper pellets is seeking funding to make the product a reality.

The product is seeking funding from www.indiegogo.com/papershooters. It has received over $8,000 in donations in three days, and needs to hit a target of $72,000 to become a reality.

The Paper Shooters - which can fire up to 75 ft - are targeting teenagers aged 14 and up, but are safe for eight year olds to use. They shoot 'wet paper ammo that the user makes themselves'. 

Backers can also print their own card frame using a card template blueprint that is delivered via email with every kit.

Creator and entrepreneur Mike Howarth wants to eventually get the products stocked by toy retailers.

At the moment, customers can order the toys and receive free shipping in the US and UK.
