NERF this Father’s Day

NERF this Father’s Day

While Dad might be the head of the house-hold, this does not necessarily equate him to being the most mature. Despite his air of in-control, sophistication, deep down his inner child is probably screaming to get out and about and have fun; so forget the boring socks, jocks and ties and give him something he really wants – toys!

It is for this reason that it is no co-incidence that some of the hottest toys each year are not released in time for Christmas but rather, Father’s Day.  Think about it, what dad wouldn’t love a Nerf:

Celebrating its 45th anniversary in 2014, the NERF brand introduces a number of incredible blaster firsts inspired by its passionate fan base and a drive for continuous innovation. With a strong focus on improved power, speed, distance and accuracy, the 2014 N-STRIKE ELITE line delivers the performance and excitement that NERF fans have come to expect since the brand began in 1969.

The N-STRIKE ELITE DEMOLISHER 2-IN-1 blaster features new NERF foam missiles, increased N-STRIKE firing distance and the ability to fire both missiles and darts simultaneously, while the N-STRIKE ELITE NERF CAM CS-12 records users’ NERF missions and allows for instant video play back, sharing, and download. The N-STRIKE ELITE line’s bigger missiles, enhanced features, and better ways to capture your NERF shots lead the way in blaster domination. It’s NERF or Nothin’!

(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $64.99/Available: Sept 14)

Take NERF shots to the next level with the 2-IN-1 blaster that dominates both MEGA and ELITE missions! The DEMOLISHER 2-IN-1 blaster is impressive in size and power, firing an increased N-STRIKE ELITE distance of up to 22 metres, featuring semi-motorized blasting for superior speed, a 10 dart banana clip, and all new missiles.  Connect NERF scopes and lights to the blaster’s top Tactical Rail System and set sights on some of coolest NERF shots performed. Blaster includes two missiles and 10 N-STRIKE ELITE darts.  Four AA batteries required, not included. Available at most major retailers nationwide.

Mega darts, mega distance and mega power combine to bring NERF fans a dynamic 2014 N-STRIKE MEGA lineup. Blasters and bows both receive the MEGA treatment firing whistling MEGA darts, which measure over twice the size of a standard N-STRIKE ELITE dart and fly even farther through the air.

(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $64.99/Available: Sept 2014)

Awesome NERF MEGA power and performance transition from blaster to bow with the addition of the N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW toy. The bow’s dynamic arms and traditional pull back system can fire five NERF MEGA whistler darts in a row up to an amazing distance of 23 metres.  Includes 10 MEGA Whistler darts and holds up to five NERF MEGA darts at a time. Available at most major retailers nationwide.

(Ages 8 years & up; available Sep 2014; approx RRP $46.99)

Zombie hordes are no match for the ZOMBIE STRIKE SLINGFIRE blaster! The blaster’s lever-action allows for quicker reloads on the run and DIY-style designs lend an authentic feel to any NERF zombie attack. Blaster comes complete with one six dart clip and six ZOMBIE STRIKE darts which can be fired up to 75 feet.  Features the NERF Tactical Rail System customizable with NERF N-STRIKE scopes and accessories, each sold separately.  Available at most major retailers nationwide.
