Dart gun sets for children

Dart gun set

Children’s dart gun sets are projectile toys consisting of a firing gun and suction-tipped darts. Some sets may also include a target.  

Children who place small suction-tipped darts in their mouths are at risk of choking on the darts or suffocating. Small darts can lodge in a child's throat and block the airways, causing loss of consciousness or death.

Always supervise children playing with dart gun sets.

There is a mandatory standard for projectile toys - see also information on these.
