Nerf Mega ThunderBow Blaster

As a kid I took up archery for a few years with my father. 20 years later, I picked up the Nerf Mega ThunderBow Blaster. I have to say it is fun to play with, but has very little in common with the real thing. Feel: Unlike a lot of Nerf’s blasters, the ThunderBow feels […]

Nerf Elite 2-in-1 Demolisher

I have to say, the pictures do not do this “blaster” justice. It is big and looks impressive, even in the hands of an adult! Looks: As stated above: Impressive! The bright orange still keeps it from looking too real, but you feel pretty invulnerable holding this thing. Comfort: I would say this is just […]

Nerf Zombie Strike Sidestrike Blaster

My son has about 25 Nerf guns of various sizes, ammo capacity, and range. The Zombie Strike Sidestrike Blaster doesn’t really seem to fall into any of the normal categories for the ones he mostly uses. Shot capacity before reloading: 1. He prefers the smaller 1 shot pistols. Priming: Due to the way the extra […]

tri-FACTa Multiplication and Division Game by Learning Resources

This is another great tri-FACTa game. Well made with clear rules, this is a great game for home and an awesome tool for the classroom. So let’s face it: in school they do not practice math facts. They are taught them, but then the practice is supposed to happen at home. Who really wants to […]

tri-FACTa Addition and Subtraction Game by Learning Resources

tri-FACTa. Interesting name I thought. My husband though ate it up. You see, he is a Math teacher that works with kids that need a little extra help on Math. So, we got it so he could give it a try. Here is what he has to say: At first the kids groaned: Ugh, another […]

Air Hogs RC AtmoSphere by SpinMaster

The AtmoSphere looks like a blast from the box. Sounds like a “levitating” ball that will follow your hand. Ok, so obviously I knew it didn’t levitate. I could see the propellers, I knew it was a miniature gyro-copter in a ball. What I didn’t expect was how hard this thing would be to control. […]

Gund Sesame Street Peek A Boo Elmo Animated 15″ Plush

I’ve been the proud buyer of several Elmo dolls over the years. For myself, for my own children, and for the children of friends and family. Some Elmos have been purely for the cuteness, some for the interactivity. So we bought just for the giggles. I would not buy this Elmo for any of those. […]

Uncle Milton Mars in My Room Collectibles

The Uncle Milton Mars in My Room looks really cool. Who wouldn’t want a light up Mars on their wall or better yet, ceiling? The image they used to craft the model is very detailed and you can easily imagine this is the view you would see as an explorer approaching Mars from space. Unfortunately, […]

Nerf N-Strike Elite Centurion Blaster

My kids love Nerf guns. We have different types ranging from simple single shot pistols, up to Tommy Gun like repeaters. We have several gattling guns, and even a crazy M-16 wannabe. But what was missing from the mix? A sniper rifle of course! Fear not future “Overwatch”, your sniper rifle has arrived! This Nerf […]

Super Soaker Switch Shot Blaster by SUPERSOAKER

I am a big Super Soaker fan. I have found memories of catching my sister unawares with a soak barrage from across the yard. I was hoping the Super Soaker Switch Shot Blaster would bring this experience to my kids. Well, my first impression was massively underwhelming. The range on this Super Soaker is really […]
