Aldi Is Selling Nerf Guns So You Can Play Fetch With Your Dog

Aldi Is Selling Nerf Guns So You Can Play Fetch With Your Dog

When you were a kid, there was nothing better than chasing your sibling around the house and threatening to shoot them with a Nerf gun.

The fear in their eyes as you backed them into a corner, before letting them have it. The tears, the tantrums... it's what we lived for. But why should humans have all the fun?

Well, the good folks over at Aldi have clearly been thinking the same thing, as they are now selling a range of Nerf gun - cleverly called Nerf Dog - that you can use to play fetch with you pet pooch.

I mean, sure you could just throw a ball, but why when you could shoot one out of a gun instead?

Priced at £10.99, the guns come with three colourful tennis balls and are currently available online. But you'll have to move quick if you want to get your hands on them before they're sold out.

The advert for the toy reads: "If the family dog enjoys games of fetch, give them a game that's really exciting with this brilliant Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Launcher.

"A great interactive toy your dog will adore, simply pull the trigger back and press to blast the ball up to 50 feet in the air. They will love chasing the ball, and your arm won't get tired from throwing, making it a great addition to your walkies."

Now, it should go without saying, but it's important to note that toys like this can be dangerous, so it's vital that you are really careful with them.

Back in 2018, a nine-year-old boy from South Wales had to have his eye removed after being hit by a pellet from a Nerf gun.

Taylor-Jay Ravicini was struck by a toy arrow when he was just three, which caused him to lose sight in the eye.

The subsequent strike from the Nerf projectile reportedly damaged the organ itself beyond repair, at which point doctors were forced to remove it to ensure that he didn't lose sight in his other eye, too.

Due to complications because of infections, Taylor was hospitalised for six weeks following the accident.
