Gel Ball Blasters - What are they and how do they work?
As you may or may not know, a new breed of toy guns are on the rise. Gel Ball Blasters have now been around for close to 3 years. What is a Gel Ball Blaster you ask? Well, basically, this is what happens when paintball and airsoft have babies... you get Gel Ball blasters! Think of it like a hybrid of paintball and airsoft.
Toy Gel Ball Blasters are similar to that of a plastic nerf or airsoft gun, however instead of shooting a foam dart like a nerf gun, or a hard plastic pellet like an airsoft gun, they fire small harmless water balls! Most blasters shoot accuratly to approx 60ft depending on the model. The gel ball ammo, also known as crystal balls or orbeez, are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and are formed after soaking in water for around 4 hours. These squishy gel balls hold there form whilst being fired and then explode on impact. An exciting but safe sport, these blasters are the ideal choice amongst many Australians, and are the best alternative to paintball and airsoft.
But unlike airsoft, there is not just one size, the sizes range all the way from 6 to 15mm! This is due to the different calibre's of the Gel Ball Blasters. The most common size is 7-8mm, however some blasters shoot wopping 13-15mm gel balls. View our size chart below.

As many Australians have had the bad luck of finding out, most orders of toy guns from overseas are seized upon arrival into Australia, due to customs mis-interpreting them as real firearms. However, when shopping with Backyard Blasters you can be rest assured you will always receive your order promptly and safely. This is because all our items are posted from within Australia (domestic parcels), so they do not go through customs. Parcels only go through customs when you order an item from outside Australia (for example buying an item from china).
