Idea Code 21381

The world of toy guns is an imaginative realm of brightly coloured water pistols and oddly shaped laser weapons. Yet it is also a world of eerily realistic guns that can easily be mistaken for the real thing. ‘Peacekeepers’ is a selection of 100 EU-approved toy guns and forms part of Daan Wubben’s research into toy gun design and regulations in the European Union. Contrary to the many strict technical and biological aspects of toy safety, the laws lack references to either ethics or security. It does not matter what a toy looks like, meaning you must decide which gun-like objects are acceptable as toys. The series progresses from the most outlandish designs to those that appear real. Published by Studio Daan Wubben, in collaboration with graphic designer Pim Waalen.
