What are Lawn Darts?

Lawn darts have many names, including jarts, yard darts, lawn jarts, and javelin darts. Typically, it’s a game that can be played with two players or teams.

Like horseshoes, the aim of the game is to throw your dart anywhere within the designated area to score points. Most games involve placing a ring on the lawn as the scoring zone. The player or team with the highest score wins.

The darts consist of a sharp point made from plastic or metal with three fins to aid flight. Commonly played by children, metal-tipped lawn jarts for sale were discontinued in the late 1980s. The same goes for vintage lawn darts for sale. Only plastic-tipped jarts are legal to sell, but if you own any vintage jarts, you can still keep them at home legally.

The lawn darts game can take multiple forms, including the standard game and Handley Cup rules. Under the latter, scores are based on darts in the target area and those closest to the target area. Darts may also be used to cancel out an opponent’s score.

As previously mentioned, AmericanListed cannot feature metal-tipped jarts/lawn darts for sale. However, we offer a range of other listings from sellers in your local area, including electronic dartboards, bocce balls, and vintage lawn dart accessories.

Can you legally sell lawn darts?

It depends. Metal-tipped lawn darts cannot be legally sold by anyone anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. However, plastic darts with blunted tips can still be legal to sell. Manufacturers have recently created legally compliant yard darts for the American consumer.

Note that independent sales are also banned. The prohibition doesn’t apply exclusively to registered businesses. Even a private seller offering lawn darts for sale to a buyer would technically be breaking the law.

Can you buy lawn darts in the U.S.?

Only certain compliant lawn darts may be sold. You cannot find any vintage lawn jarts for sale or any service that can provide them to you for your backyard party. Although metal lawn darts remain legal in Europe, manufacturers will not ship to the U.S. due to their ban. This ban extends to all transactions involving resident Americans, even if the seller is based overseas.

Can jarts be sold on eBay?

No, eBay is a sales platform, meaning they would be culpable if they allowed listings for vintage jarts for sale on their site. We apply the same principles to AmericanListed because both the seller and the platform would potentially be in violation of the law.

When were lawn darts discontinued?

Lawn darts were banned from sale in the U.S. in 1988 in all circumstances. While possession was not outlawed, future sales were. Recently, some manufacturers have attempted to bring back this backyard favorite by producing darts compliant with the law. These darts are made of plastic, and their tips have been blunted.

Why were lawn darts banned?

Lawn darts were banned because of the number of serious injuries associated with them across the U.S. and Canada. Legislation to curb the number of injuries occurred prior to the 1988 ban but was found to be ineffective.

The trigger for the ban was the death of seven-year-old Michelle Snow in California. Successful lobbying to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission caused the outright ban to come into force the following year. While this was the most commonly cited event, it was found that 6,100 Americans had visited emergency rooms over the previous eight years due to lawn dart accidents.

Canada banned lawn darts one year later, in 1989, citing 55 serious injuries caused by these backyard sports toys. If you choose to play with lawn darts, it’s important that you engage in safe practices.
