If you have kids like we do, you probably have heard of NERF and their numerous blasters. I am privilege to present you the NERF MEGA MASTODON today. Initially, I thought it would be perfect for my 10 years old son to bring to the famous NERF Nights that are held at our church. But seeing how big this blaster is I think I need to rethink the usage of it.
When we went to close our RV and take our boat out of the water last week, our mailman delivered the package on the porch. Fortunately, our neighbor picked it up for us and brought it on Saturday when he saw we were back. My husband brought it upstairs and without my knowledge proceeded to open it. You should have seen his eyes shining as he looked at the box. You see he has big plans for our family pictures this year and I could see his plans forming in his head. I won’t say more because I do not want to kill the surprise for those who will receive our family picture.
This blaster is very big and would be preferable for teenagers or adults though the box does mention ages 8+… The MEGA MASTODON will definitely crush your opponents with its motorized blasting of mega darts. Nobody can stand a chance when facing this NERF Blaster!
The device comes with 24 darts and a revolving drum. It also comes with a shoulder strap which helps you to keep it close to you at all times.
The Mega darts will travel great distance as well compared to the regular NERF darts. About 80% of them will travel less than 28 meters (95 feet) while 20% of them would travel between 28-30 meters (95-100 feet). I would recommend to have a fannypack in order to store these bullets and to purchase extra bullets in order to keep our MEGA MASTODON ready to use. Come to think of it, I think Hasbro should design and offer a NERF MEGA fannypack to fans. I think it could be a popular items among the fans of NERF blasters.
The MEGA MASTODON is not very heavy but the size of it could make it awkward to manipulate. It was a great idea to include a shoulder strap for carrying it while have a war with friends.
Note that the MEGA MASTODON also require 6 D batteries in order to function. Assembly will be required though no tools are necessary. When opening the box you will see that the revolving drum needs to be put together.
Also be extremely cautious when using the MEGA MASTODON. Do not aim at the eyes or face in order to avoid unnecessary injuries. Play safely and have a blast!
This NERF MEGA MASTODON is a great gift for someone who is really into NERF blasters and love to have activities like the ones they are putting at our church. The junior high kids enjoy getting together about 5-6 times a year and create some challenging courses where two teams are fighting against each other. My boys sure enjoy that evening with friends and pizza. They are already looking forward to the next one on November 5th.
The NERF MEGA MASTODON is available for purchase anywhere, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
