TECH GROUP Introduces WipeOut: The New Indoor/Outdoor "Chalk Dart" Urban Combat Game for Kids

Share Article

TECH GROUP today introduced WipeOut, the new patented "chalk dust" dart technology game for kids. The game can be played indoors or outdoors. Special heads in the dart contain chalk dust that "marks" the target. It's easy and painless to "wipe out" the chalk dust "marker" on the target for the next game. Each player uses darts with different colored chalk in the heads, matching the color of the dart so players can tell who fired a scoring shot. The product is suitable for ages eight and up (8+).

Tech Group USA, LLC, today announced its plans to introduce "WipeOut," an innovative urban combat game for kids, at the Toy Industry Association's Fall Toy Preview in Dallas, TX, October 9-12, 2007.

A hand-held shooter designed for children ages eight and up, WipeOut shoots patent-pending "chalk darts". The dart heads are hollow and are filled with chalk dust that leave a visible mark upon target impact. Each dart can be used up to 30 times and contains different colored chalk, allowing players to identify who made the mark and the ability to keep score.

Low impact and easy to clean, WipeOut can be played anywhere indoors or outside. Chalk dust wipes off easily to begin the next unique combat experience.

"WipeOut is a great complement to our unique line of safe, family-friendly toys and games that encourage active play," said Mark Bradshaw, President of Tech Group. "Boys and girls alike will enjoy this "painless" and "paint-less" experience that can be played anywhere, anytime. Moms will love how easily it cleans."

WipeOut meets US toy safety regulations and is currently offered in both single and twin packs. Refill packages in three and six-count darts are also available.

  • WipeOut Single Pack: Includes one chalk dart shooter, three multi-colored foam-based chalk darts, protective eyewear and a practice target.
  • WipeOut Twin Pack: Ideal for the true combat experience, the twin pack includes two chalk dart shooters, six multi-colored foam-based chalk darts, protective eyewear and a practice target.
