A while back, a friend and I were trying to come up with the most 'humane' but effective ways to keep those damn blasted squirrels out of our gardens and the best thing we could come up with was a marshmallow in a sling shot... well the fantastic brains at Think Geekhave done us one better!
What you're looking at is Creative Child Magazine's 2004 seal of excellence winner ... The Marshmallow Shooter. This beauty holds 20 mini marshmallows in one round and is capable of launching them up to 30 feet!
And for those of you who abide by the "bigger is better" attitude ... or if you have particularly LARGE squirrels, you can opt for the mammoth Marshmallow BLASTER!
This puppy can shoot one regular smore-makin' sized marshmallow or a bundle of minis and is capable reaching distances of up to 40 feet! The way I figure it, you don't even have to be an expert marks-person with one of these things to deflect the squirrels. Just shoot a few away from your fritillary bulbs they'll go running after it. I mean, who doesn't love a good marshmallow?
(If you're a stationary store junkie like myself, you'll also apprecitate their foxin' red stapler. Oh god how I love that site.)
