Holy Sheet! Jakks Pacific to Launch Rapid Fire TP Blaster
Aside from getting to write the single greatest headline ever, discovering the latest product in Jakks Pacific’s line of Toilet Paper Blasters has brought out the nine year old kid in my 30-year-old self. My birthday is just around the corner, so anyone who’s still looking for ideas on what to get me should just read on.
At last year’s Toy Fair in New York City, Jakks, the toy manufacturer behind a number of widely popular kids toys, unveiled their Skid Shot Toilet Paper Blaster. A NERF gun alternative, Skid Shot ditches those annoying foam pellets in favor of a toilet paper/tap water combo that could splatter soaked TP on your foes from a solid 30 feet away. What’s great, on one hand, is that Skid Shot transforms the idea of the spitball into a much more hygienic weapon with no actual spit required. A single roll of two-ply toilet paper—the recommended ammunition—provides in excess of 350 spitballs.
This Skid Shot, however, was just the tip of the toilet paper roll.
