I can not even count the number of NERF toys we have had through the ages. I am probably sitting on a little foam bullet right now. I think they are such well made toys and really entertain the kid without too much electronics involved. I have especially loved the NERF Night Vision football and basketball series they came out with last year. Even though it has batteries, the kids are out playing sports.
I love NERF so much we had my son’s 7th birthday party a NERF party. Water shooters was the theme, perfect for a summer birthday. They kids ran off all their sugar. Everyone I think absolutely LOVED IT. Is it awful to repeat the same birthday theme?
When Christmas rolls around I have one child who usually waits until the last minute to decide what he wants to ask Santa for. Well this year I am two steps ahead of him, I got him the newest NERF toy, Nerf Night Vision Camcorder.
They are going to go wild over these:
- Includes a night-vision camcorder, USB cable and a Vivitar Experience Image Manager CD
- Perfect for zeroing in on your pretend targets
- Camcorder allows you to see up to 50 feet in the dark and record video with 4x magnification
- Videos and photos can be played back on the LCD screen
- Contains LED/IR lights
SRP: $69.99 –Nerf Night Vision Camcorder (only 14 left at Amazon)
While we have not tried these yet, I did see a demo on YouTube and the person viewed the room with lights and then again with her NERF Night Vision Camcorder on, and I must say I was impressed as an adult, can’t imagine what the boys will think! I do worry about the battery life on something so technical, yet a kids toy, so just be sure and have some extra on hand. It will be interesting what these boys decide to video in the dark!
