Salvaging Toy Laser Gun?

I have these two old toy laser guns As Seen Here, Overpriced, and was wondering if anyone knows if there is anything worth salvaging out of it. The guns turn on and stuff, but the sensor to "reload" is on the blink, and even I can't set it off, let alone my 4 and 5 year old nephews. Thanks.

Btw, what type of "laser" do you think it is ? An infared beam, like a remote?

. One of the comments mentions it being IR and compares it to a remote.

Yea. Probably just a focused IR LED. That would be the most inexpensive technique.
