How They Work

Big-Bang® Cannons are safe and easy to use. Water, some fresh air, Bangsite® and a spark is all you'll need to get a loud bang and realistic flash of light. Bangsite® is pulverized calcium carbide. There is no recoil or kick. The safety features make Big-Bang® Cannons a fun toy for kids 7 to 70+!. There are Big-Bang® Cannons currently in use that have lasted over 100 years.


Blast from the Past

In 1907, an assistant professor of physics at Lehigh University patented the "Gas Gun" (patent no. 874,952...December 31, 1907). The value of this invention as a sane toy and a safe alternative to numerous consumer fireworks injuries became readily apparent. In 1912, a business was started manufacturing Big-Bang® Cannons - "Gas Cannon Company".


Big-Bang Theory

The appeal of a Big-Bang® Cannon is simple - a scale-model toy cannon that makes a loud bang and flash, but has no recoil or kick. They've been a favorite from generation to generation. They're a safe alternative to consumer fireworks...a source of fun at all outdoor gatherings...a display piece and collector's item...a unique gift for all occasions.


Happy Holidays!
