Gun-shaped teddy bear crackers ready to liven up wedding receptions

IMABARI, Ehime — A paint firm here is hoping to add color to wedding receptions in Japan with a new device it has jointly developed — a gun-shaped party cracker that shoots out a teddy bear.

Sunamiya, a paint firm based in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture, announced the development of the device, which blasts a teddy bear equipped with a parachute into the air. The teddy bear parachutes down afterwards.

Developers hit on the idea after noticing that it had become a trend for people to throw teddy bears into the air instead of bouquets at wedding receptions.

In addition to paint products, Sunamiya produces a paintball marker used to fire paintballs at escaping criminals so they can be identified and captured.

“We’re hoping to capture the hearts of couples,” a company representative said, commenting on the new device.

The crackers will go on sale in May, and will be marketed to businesses. (Mainichi)
