Christmas has come and gone and we are busy putting the house back together, while the kids are enjoying all their wonderful gifts they received. Having three boys who love to play we just had to have NERF products under the tree. I couldn’t narrow down what I wanted them to have to play with outside but I knew they loved the little NERF products we have bought in the past and thought now since they are each a little older I can get them something in their age range that they each can enjoy while playing together outside. Even as a grown adult my husband and I enjoy playing with the boys toys and spending as much time with them indoors and out as we can. There are several gifts the kids received that we both have played with and the kids can not get enough of mom and dad playing with their kids toys. It’s not about the toys itself it is about creating those wonderful memories that we all can look back on years down the road. I am in my late twenties and I still tell the boys the stories I remember and the things I remember doing as a little girl and if I don’t tell them they are sure to ask Mom or Dad did you remember doing this when you were our age or did you have this when you was little? It’s those little moments we can share with the kids things we did and how much different our childhood was to their childhood now.
Life of a Southern Mom was given the opportunity to work with Hasbro and review two of their NERF toys. Hasbro sent me the NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE SLINGFIRE Blaster and Nerf N’ STRIKE THUNDERBOW Toy. I received the items before Christmas but wanted to wait and give it to them on Christmas morning.
The NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE SLINGFIRE Blaster is perfect for ages 8+. The Zombie hordes are no match for the ZOMBIE STRIKE SLINGFIRE Blaster. This blaster lever action allows for quick reloads and comes with one six dart clip and size ZOMBIE STRIKE darts which can be fired up to 75 feet. The ZOMBIE STRIKE SLINGFIRE Blaster features the NERF Tactical Rail System that can be customized with NERF N’ Strike scopes and accessories that are sold separately. Even though it says it is for ages eight and up, my four year old and six year old have both enjoyed playing with it. It is available for purchase at most retailers nationwide and on Amazon. Retail Value $24.99
The NERF N’ STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW Toy is also perfect for ages 8+. The NERF Mega power and performance transitions from blaster to bow with the addition of the N- STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW toy. This bow can fire five NERF MEGA whistler darts in a row that can go up to 100 feet. It includes 10 MEGA Whistler darts and holds five NERF MEGA darts at one time. Again, even though this says perfect for ages eight and up both my younger four and six year old can pull the bow’s dynamic arms with the traditional pull back system to blast away. This can be purchased for just $39.99 at most retailers and Amazon.
