Parents and Guardians Guide

We understand the need to choose the right product for your children or, really anyone you’re purchasing for. So we have put together this simple guide to help you understand what GelSoft is and if it's right for you.

GelSoft are, simply put, just toy guns and like most toy guns they fire a projectile, GelSoft guns however are designed with to be low in speed and power making them safe for most children and teenagers to use under supervision. You can think of them like paintball guns, except they use soft, water-based gel balls that ‘pop’ on impact with a small splat of water, or otherwise just bounce harmlessly off the target.

These GelSoft guns are perfect for most children between 8-100 years old! They are safe enough to use in groups shooting at each other (if you’re wearing the safety glasses) and more than fun enough to keep teenagers engaged.

With children on the younger end of our age guide, we recommend adult supervision, so they don’t shoot at animals or people who are not involved in the GelSoft game. Adult supervision also ensures that children are aware of the rules, for example, to make sure they don’t look into the barrel or a loaded gun.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us, one of our staff will be more than happy to assist with any queries or help with any information you need.


These guns are battery powered so care should be taken not to get them wet and to follow the charging guide provided on the product page – They should be charged for the correct length of time and not left unattended overnight.


The ammo is designed to be safe for the environment and non-toxic. Obviously, it must be kept away from smaller children as it could represent a choking hazard if they were to eat it.

Safety Precautions:

We’ve created GelSoft to be as safe as possible, but also as fun as possible. With that in mind, it’s important to follow a few safety precautions.

1. Always use the safety glasses that come with the GelSoft guns
2. Never look directly into the barrel
3. Even though our lasers are low powered and safe, we advise to avoid contact with eyes
4. Ensure everyone playing knows what to expect from a hit and make sure they are agreeing to be shot at – this is important as they may cause tiny red marks to appear on the skin
5. Always charge batteries for the correct length of time and don’t leave unattended
6. Use correctly sized ammo and don’t use anything other than the correct Gel ammo
fun for all ages
