This super water gun shoots a safe 1” stream of water for over 30 feet. It’s a winner of awards from Dr. Toy and Parent’s Choice. It comes in lime green, aqua blue and hot purple. The Gusher works on the pulling force of arms alone.
— “The Geyser Gusher,” is hot for cooling off kids at Imagination Village in Concord, N.H., said owner Laura Miller. “Kids like it because it's different and fun. It doesn’t involve diving. You don’t have to swim, so little kids can do it as well. You can get people wet who are not in the pool, which is always fun!”
— Water guns are a perennial item at Tom's Toys in Beverly Hills, said manager Steve Meynig.
— Not only is this a cool toy, “it’s patented,” said John Frazier, CEO of Geyser Guys. They also make Geyser Guys Water Squirters, Douser Dolphin, Geyser Whale, Splashy Turtle, the Geyser Flyer and the New Geyser Spray Football.
