New Toothpick Crossbow

Toothpick crossbow toy craze has China quivering
http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/eas...hina-quivering
Quote:
SHANGHAI (AFP) - Handheld crossbows that can fire out needles and nails are the latest must-have toy in China but anxious parents want them banned before a young child gets blinded or worse.

Selling online and in shops for as little as seven yuan (S$1.42), so-called toothpick crossbows were originally designed to shoot out just that - toothpicks.

But if swapped out for needles they are potent enough to crack glass, said the Shanghai Daily newspaper, quoting shop owners as saying they were selling out of the "toys" fast and struggling to meet demand.

I have a marshmallow crossbow, that some one made me when I was active in the SCA. It was for use during feasts, you could also shoot peas, hard candy, and a bunch of other food items.

I'm going to need to buy some new ceiling tiles for my office, maybe some more liability insurance too.
