Abstract (en)

A device for launching confetti, coiled streamers or the like, comprises a conical tube having a bottom plug in a lower portion to define a cavity above the plug to receive the confetti, coiled streamers and the like. An upper plug formed of a low density foam material is fitted within a top portion of the tube for holding ally confetti, coiled streamers or the like within the cavity, and the tube forms a handle portion below the lower plug for grasping by a user. The upper plug is adapted upon quick motion of the handle portion by the user to fly outwardly by centrifugal force and permit the confetti, roller streamers or the like to fly from the tube to fall in an attractive shower. When used with confetti, the confetti is preferably arranged face to face in a plurality of bundles arranged in layers within the cavity. Each layer of bundled confetti is arranged adjacent another in side-by-side relation with the individual elements of confetti in substantially vertical alignment within the cavity. <IMAGE>
