    The law of the jungle dictates that you have to prance around in a loincloth, beat your chest in a macho fashion, befriend and kill beasts in equal measure, speak like a monosyllabic dimbo ('Me Tarzan, you Jane') and swing from the trees yelling 'Aaah, aah-aah, aah, aah, aaah-aah!' every five minutes. A load of old um bongo, we think you'll agree.

    Thankfully there are some things that appear in Hollywood jungles that really do exist in real life. Take, for example, the infamous blowpipe. Widely used by prehistoric peoples, these simple yet sneaky weapons are still employed in SE Asia and by some indigenous peoples of the Amazon and Guiana regions of South America. Of course these rainforest dwellers usually dip their darts in curare (ouch!) in order to paralyse their prey, so we doubt they'd be overly impressed by the Blow Dart on offer here. But you will be!

    That's because this unbelievably powerful, breath-powered pipe is capable of accurately firing a dart up to 50ft. Yes, 50ft! We know that's hard to believe but take our word for it. Our MD is currently sporting a suction cup on his forehead - and he sits on a leopardskin throne right at the other end of the office! As you can see, the ingenious Blow Dart has given everyone here at Firebox Village a dose of jungle fever. Hardly surprising as it's one of the most entertaining non-battery-powered firing thingies we've ever seen. Not only is it a doddle to use, it's light, sturdy and, despite the fact it is powered by puff, inexplicably powerful.

    The Blow Dart even has a mouth guard and a barrel-mounted clip to store your darts. Speaking of which, the 6 little suckers that the Blow Dart comes with are ideal for target practice as they stick to windows, message boards and countless other smooth surfaces with the greatest of ease. Just load, aim and blow. Short of tying a banana leaf around your nether regions, shoving an old CD in your gob and sneaking around next door's greenhouse, the Blow Dart is the best way to go native for under a tenner in the whole wild world!
