GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — With the hot temperatures we've been facing, so far, this summer,  in West Michigan, a water balloon fight is a perfect (and fun!) way to stay cool.

I put the "Bunch O Balloons Water Balloon Slingshot" to the test, to see if it lives up to the hype.

The water balloon launcher is available on Amazon for $19.99.

According to the product description, it allows you to launch water balloons "up to around 100 Feet."

It also includes 100 water balloons, that you can "fill up in 60 Seconds."

The water balloon slingshot is for kids 6 years and older.
