Super Soaker
Super Soaker is a brand of water gun manufactured by the company Hasbro. The brand was first introduced in 1991 and has since become one of the most popular and recognizable water gun brands in the world.
The original
The original Super Soaker was the Super Soaker 50, which featured a pressurized water chamber that could hold up to 50 ounces of water. This allowed the user to shoot a steady stream of water over a distance of up to 25 feet. Since then, the brand has expanded to include a wide range of water guns with different features and capabilities.
Some of the most popular models include the Super Soaker 100, Super Soaker 300, and Super Soaker XP-310. In addition to traditional water guns, the Super Soaker brand also includes a line of water blasters that use air pressure to shoot water. These blasters can shoot water up to 50 feet and are popular for large-scale water fights.
