The warm season is finally here and soon school will be finished. In our household, since we homeschool, we tend to finish before the end of the school year in regular schools. The kids are already asking more and more to go play outside (I guess it helps to have a cool play structure for them in the backyard!) and we are reading to start our camping season.
But what else can you do to keep boys occupied during the summer time? Well Hasbro has just released some new NERF products in the Dart Tag series. Let me present them to you!
Take your DART TAG game to the next level! This fully automatic blaster lets you dominate the game with a 20-dart attack! The rotating barrel lets you deliver rapid blasting action and the removable stock lets you take your blasting action on the go. When your opponent is in sight, grab your blaster and send your DART TAG darts flying — they’ll even whistle as they fly. Blast your way to victory!
Blaster comes with 20 DART TAG darts. Requires 6 “C” batteries (not included). Ages 8 and up.
Do you have what it takes to be a DART TAG champion? Challenge a friend to a showdown with this awesome two-player starter pack. Gear up with your training jersey and load your SHARP SHOT blaster. Put on your VISION GEAR goggles, your opponent will do the same, and you’re ready for action! Your SHARPSHOT blaster lets you take down opponents fast, but remember: your opponent has one, too! Use your skills to stay out of the line of fire and when you’ve got your opponent in your sights, launch your attack! Go head-to-head until the battle is won — and then pull the darts off your jerseys to start the fight all over again!
Pack includes 2 SHARP SHOT blasters, 2 sets of VISION GEAR eyewear, 2 training jerseys (one size fits most), 8 DART TAG darts and instructions. Ages 8 and up.
Take your DART TAG game to the next level! This air-powered blaster lets you take down your opponents in next to no time! The quick-release belt clip lets you make your move fast, so you’re aiming and firing as quickly as you can. When your opponent is in sight, grab your blaster and send your DART TAG darts flying — they’ll even whistle as they fly. Blast your way to victory!
Blaster comes with quick-release belt clip and 4 DART TAG darts. Ages 8 and up.
Take your DART TAG game to the next level! This air-powered blaster lets you unleash a rapid-fire stream of 16 darts at your opponents to give you high-scoring performance. The integrated clip holds all 16 darts for super-fast loading and the pump-action handle lets you control the rate of fire. When your opponent is in sight, grab your QUICK 16 blaster and send your DART TAG darts flying — they’ll even whistle as they fly. Blast your way to victory!
Blaster comes with 16 DART TAG darts and instructions. Ages 8 and up.
Since 2001, I have discovered the world of boys… I have three of them and thanks to my daughter I am not alone in this bunch of guys. But still I quickly see the difference between boys and girls. From a young age, they would create guns with Legos without us showing them how to do it. Boys will be boys and nothing will stop them to be competitive and at war every once in a while. So when I got the opportunity to review the new Dart Tag products, I was highly interested.
This week, we went to eat at some friends before the Awana activity of our kids. They have two boys and my son, Alexandre (age almost 10), found an older version of the NERF blaster. He proceeded to go outside and play with it with the other boys. Now he wants to have one. *grin*
Yes I know I did received one…. He doesn’t know it yet. You see we have a little tradition in our household. When special days like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day arrives, we have taken the habit to bless the future mom and dads with us. Consequently, I am planning to surprised the “future dads” with some cool NERF products on Father’s Day in June. My husband has his eyes on the Swarmfire. *grin* He plans to blast the boys with it…
Last year we celebrate Father’s Day at our trailer. I suspect it will be the same this year. I can picture them going in the big field to play against each other. Quality time will be spend together and memories will be made for sure!
As I write this I smile because I just know that they will have lots of fun with dad and with each other while playing with these. You see our play structure has a fort section and I can see my kids playing there with their NERF blasters.
I wouldn’t be surprised whatsoever if they would even pretend to be clones from the Star Wars Clones Wars… It’s just the way they are!
And if the rain keeps your boys inside well they could go to the online games at http://www.darttag.ca/game.html . I tried it and I find it difficult to control the character. Mind you, I am sure the kids will figure it out better than their mom… Even though I have graduated in the Information Technology field, I find that they will be more advance than me with the computers one day. Still, it would keep them occupied for a little while when the temperature is not fantastic outside…
In the meantime, I can’t hardly wait for Father’s Day to arrive because I know that they will be very joyful when they see these. My only problem would be to hide them from their curious eyes when we go to the trailer…
