Less 'bang bang you're dead,' more 'boing, pop, you're slightly deaf.' The Balloon Russian Roulette is a harmless version of classic Russian Roulette, taking away the blood, murder case and disposal of a body. Ideal Birthday and Christmas gifts, Balloon Russian Roulette involves pointing a 'gun' at another persons head with a balloon attached to the front, pulling the trigger will either produce nothing...or a pin that pops the balloon!I've never had any issues with toy guns for kids. Playing "Army," or "Cowboys and Indians" is part of growing up. And games with toy guns even can involve pointing the toy guns at your playmates. This pushes the envelope. One of the comments on the Amazon page stated, "This game is a wonderful way to teach kids of all ages about statistics, probability, and handgun safety." I see the wrong lessons coming out of this. Here's a better idea, take them to the range teach your kids actual gun safety. And show them what a bullet will do to a watermelon.

Seems Like A Bad Idea
water balloon game in which your children can simulate "Russian Roulette" using a plastic pistol and water balloons. If the balloon doesn't pop, the gun is passed to the next person.
