The soft bullet gun is a kind of gun toy that boys love, and it is more common in the toy market. However, in recent years, there have been frequent accidents involving water-absorbent and soft bullet guns. The Defective Product Management Center of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine has recently issued relevant consumer warnings to remind the potential risks of such toys.

It is understood that the soft bullet gun is a kind of ejection toy. In order to protect the safety of children, the 'bullets' it fires are mostly made of plastic, foam and other materials. 'Water-absorbing bullet' soft bullet gun, its bullet is different from the traditional 'soft bulletIt is widely sold in the market. Yesterday, the reporter visited many toy stores in the city and found that this 'water-absorbent' soft bullet gun is very popular. Depending on the size and style, the price ranges from tens to hundreds of yuan. According to a store, the bullets they sell are mostly plastic 'bb bulletsBanned, 'The bullets of these soft bullet guns currently produced by manufacturers are made of foam and water-absorbing bullets. They are all soft and have no lethality.' The reporter saw that in the soft bullet gun toy packaging box on the market, except for a 'gunThere are all kinds. According to the store, compared to soft foam bombs, water-absorbing bombs are easy to use, do not need to be recycled after being shot, and will disappear due to water evaporation.

In addition, the ejection kinetic energy of some soft bullet guns exceeds the limit specified by the standard. If the ejection kinetic energy is too large, the water-absorbent projectile may cause impact damage after hitting the human body. If it hits the eyes and other parts , May cause serious injuries such as eyeball contusion; some soft bullet guns have a dangerous gap of 5-12mm between the bullet compartment and the gun body.
