As part of Hasbro Toy Tribe, we’ve received a lovely new toy to try, the Nerf n Strike Elite Hyperfire Blaster, for ages 8-16. Currently £49.99 from Toysrus.
We’ve already got one Nerf, with precious few foam darts left, so getting this to try was very well received by my boys, and even my teen had lots of fun with it. Our existing Nerf is teensy in comparison, and the Elite Blaster was in demand when they saw how fast the darts are when the trigger is pressed. I have to admit to getting a very real satisfaction from shooting it myself, as the foam darts went ping, ping, ping against the wall.
The box was a fairly big size, which would go down well for a present, I think. And unlike many presents, inside wasn’t a huge box with something teensy at the centre. The length of the box was fully needed. One of the biggest disappointments my kids have faced over the years with toys, has been opening a box to find hardly anything inside.
Take aim with the HyperFire blaster and challenge opponents with ultimate speed! It’s the fastest motorised Nerf dart blaster, unleashing 5 darts per second to rain down a deluge of darts onto targets! With its 25-dart drum, this Nerf N-Strike Elite blaster brings impressive firepower to the battle. It fires darts up 90 feet (27 meters). Press the acceleration button, pull the trigger, and let the rapid-fire action begin! Comes with 25 Elite darts.
Believe me when I say, those 25 darts are fast. My kids are already pushing to get more darts so they can do a rapid load and fire. It takes four D batteries, which are rather large round ones. Luckily we had some for a torch that hub was planning to renew batteries on, so we pinched them.
Putting it together was easy enough although my teen helped middler to get it all working. The box had sat for a full day before I got to it, and he couldn’t concentrate on anything until it was opened and set up, but had to wait until I picked up my camera from the motorhome, where I’d forgotten to take it home from, and charged it up. Very bad timing to be forgetful!
Thankfully, it comes almost completely built, with only the dart chamber and the batteries to be inserted. With the size of batteries, I’m guessing this will last for a fair time, which is a bonus.
The dart chamber is circular, and you pop them in the top. It’s quite easy to do.
From there, it’s press one of the two triggers to get the Hyperfire ready, and press that firing trigger, then watch the darts fly…… Very easy set up, and very easy to use. It’s proved to be a very popular addition to our household.
Thanks to Hasbro for the review Nerf n Strike Elite Hyperfire Blaster. Currently £49.99 from Toysrus.
