Just Arrived Today - Airzookas! - Okotoks & Calgary Area Toy Store

Launch A Full Air Assault - Without Ever Leaving The Ground! Airzooka is the 'fun gun' that blows a harmless ball of air towards any object, person (or animal!). The airball will travel up to thirty feet and beyond... cackle with amusement as, seemingly from nowhere, you are able to mess up a person's hair. AirZooka operates simply by pulling and releasing a built-in elastic air launcher. And here's the best part: because it shoots air, you'll never run out of ammo (unless you happen to be on the moon!). Now in stock at Monkey Mountain Toys & Games and available in 3 colours: yellow, blue & black.
