What Will Be This Year's Popular Toys for Christmas?

Every year different toys hit it big. They're the toys kids desperately want, the ones you may have to buy early or face the stores being out of stock. Everyone wants them and not everyone can get them.

Looking around this year, there are a few toys that seem to be likely candidates for hitting it big in 2007.

My own personal favorite is the Eye-Clops magnifier. Kids love using magnifying glasses, and I can't imagine that they wouldn't enjoy a more powerful one that is easier to use than a microscope.

Toy electric guitars such as the Power Tour Electric Guitar also look to be very popular this year. These are for somewhat older kids, 10 and up. But for the kid who thinks he or she wants to learn to play it looks like a nice deal.

The Nerf N-Strike Disk Shot also looks like a lot of fun for the kids. It shoots both darts and disks.

I also like the Hasbro Electronic Hyper Slide. It has some disadvantages - noise being one of them, but can be played by one or two children. All they need is a smooth surface to play the game, whether it be table top or floor. It has a choice of 3 games to play, giving a little variety and challenge.

The Spinmaster Air Hogs Battling Havoc R/C Helicopters should also be a lot of fun. Tiny R/C helicopters that can battle each other. They're highly maneuverable and can be played with indoors... so long as you aren't worried about them knocking anything fragile over. Pick the play zones carefully. They're quite lightweight so hitting things may not be that much of a problem, but the mother in me does think of it.

And who could forget Webkinz when thinking of popular toys right now? You buy the plush toy, then you can play with it in a virtual world as well. Kids just love it.

The big trouble this year, as most parents know, has been with toy recalls. One of the hot toys this year, Aqua Dots, was recently recalled due to having GHB in it. It was dangerous to children if swallowed. What can we say except, kids do indeed put things in their mouths. My daughter was devastated when she learned about that recall, and with a cousin promptly started to make signs to warn other kids about the danger.

It's been a rough year with toy recalls, mostly due to lead content. Hopefully this will help parents to be more aware of potential hazards in children's toys so that they can make wiser decisions while waiting for more action to be taken on preventing these things from happening in the first place.

The N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35 Nerf Gun

The N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35 is one of NERF's new Nerf blasters for 2009. Released in early September of 2009, the Raider Rapid Fire is a 35 round beast that will forever change how you NERF.

With a universal clip that works with the Recon CS-6 and Longshot, the Raider's clip is nothing short of awesome. Every Nerfer will without doubt find the capacity to be game change. Reload less and shoot more with the Raider.

Other features it has include the slam fire action, which allows you to quickly pump and shoot the toy gun easily. Sending volleys of darts is easy, and with the retractable stock you can steady your shots for better accuracy.

The entire Nerf gun has a digital camo pattern printed on it, giving it a nice cool looking finish. The clip makes it look surprisingly similar to a tommy gun, which many fans were quick to point out upon its release.

Priced at a cool $34, the Raider CS-35 is near the price of the electronic Nerf Vulcan. However, what sets these two Nerf guns apart aside from the Vulcan being fully automatic, is the ammo capacity of the Raider (35 rounds compared to 25 in the Vulcan), and the fact it jams MUCH less than the Vulcan.

If you're looking for a Nerf gun that will fire quickly, and can carry a lot of ammo - the Raider is it. Its NERF's gift for the rapid firing addicts in the Nerf community.

The 5 Best Fictional Lorries

The world of haulage and lorry driving has never been seen as the most glamorous, despite there being some truly memorable lorries in the world of film and television. Here are 5 of my favourites...

5. Mack (Cars)

No doubt "Cars" was one of Disney-Pixar's more forgettable animated films, but Mack - a 1980s Superliner who transports Lighting McQueen in the film - just about sneaks into the list for being voiced by the legendary John Ratzenberger.

Ratzenberger, who played the longwinded mailman Cliff Clavin on Cheers, has appeared in all the Pixar animated films and is considered something of a good luck charm for the studio. They mocked this in the closing credits for Cars, when Mack the lorry watches car-themed versions of Pixar Movies praising Ratzenberger's characters in ever one - until he realises they're all played by the same actor: "What kind of a cut rate production is this? They're just using the same actor over and over again!"

4. Creeper's Truck (Jeepers Creepers)

Jeepers Creepers, the 2001 horror film, had a truly memorable truck in it, though more memorable for the lorry driver: the Creeper himself. Driving an armoured lorry, the creeper turns out to be an ancient demon that rises every 23rd spring for 23 days to feast on humans to form part of its own body. Despite being made up of bits of dead bodies, our villain is rather handy with his 1941 Chevy COE which he uses to transport the bodies of his victims. Nice!

3. Rhino (MASK)

M.A.S.K, for the uninitiated, was a 1980s kids' cartoon series and best described as a hybrid of Transformers and G.I. Joe. In total 75 episodes were created between 1985 and 1986. The relevance to this list? Rhino - surely one of the finest lorries ever to grace our television sets. This lorry was piloted by Bruce Sato, Alex Sector and Matt Tracker at various points in the show and was armed with anti-gravity cannons, a battering ram, a missile launcher and a separate little car that could slip out of the back.

Aside from its awesome vehicles and 80s vibe, MASK is most memorable now for its contrived use of acronyms. The good guys were M.A.S.K - which stood for Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, while the baddies organisation (such as it was!) was known as V.E.N.O.M - Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem.

2. Snowman's Truck (Smokey and the Bandit)

You can't have a list of excellent lorry drivers without referring to 1977's Smokey and the Bandit. The classic tale tells of rich Texans offering Bo "Bandit" Darville (Burt Reynolds) $80,000 to haul 400 cases of Coors beer from Texarkana, Texas to the Southern Classic stock car race in Georgia in 28 hours. A contrived plot sees plenty of action looking to sabotage the plans but despite this, Bandit and his accomplice Cledus "Snowman" Snow (Jerry Reed) manage to get the cargo safely to its destination in Snowman's Kenworth W900.

Nowadays with the improved road network, managing the journey in 28 hours would be a cinch. In those days however, it would have been very impressive for a lorry driver and well worthy of the $80,000 bounty (which would translate to roughly $270,000 in today's money - and would neatly negate the need for a money-spinning backload!)

1. Optimus Prime (Transformers)

As if there was any doubt, Optimus Prime is of course THE most memorable lorry. Because he's not just any old lorry - he's a robot in disguise! Leader of the Autobots, and without a doubt the best known character from Transformers, he was equipped with everything a robot in disguise would need, including a laser rifle, various additional weapons in the trailer, a radio antenna for battlefield communication and a mobile scout buggy for reconnaissance - perfect for delivering backloads, should he have time in his busy schedule. Many people who remember Optimus Prime for his deep booming voice should look away now when I reveal that Peter Cullen, the man who voiced him, was also responsible for the voice of Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh!

Nerf Longstrike - Nerf's New Sniper Rifle For 2010

Anyone that is not familiar with Nerf guns will undoubtedly get an amazed reaction after seeing it. If you can just imagine yourself never having seen a Nerf gun before, and while walking down a toy isle you stumble across the Longstrike, you will immediately think "wow, that's a Nerf gun?!"

There's no doubt many are amazed to see such a massive dart gun in a toy store. The fact that it is nearly 4 feet in length demands your intention, especially for anyone who walks down a toy isle, you simply can't help but notice how much shelf space this beast of a sniper rifle takes up. Its quite incredible.

Perhaps more incredible is its futuristic look. This blue blaster is a serious looking Nerf blaster.

Apart of the N-Strike line, the Longstrike is fully compatible with much of the accessories that come with other blasters in the line. This includes the barrel that comes with the Recon, the sites, and even the high capacity drum clip that comes with the Raider. With all the possibilities you'll have a heck of a time seeing which configuration you like most.

Before the Longstrike, there was the Longshot, which took the world of Nerf by storm. Now with two serious sniper rifles available, the only thing you'll be struggling with, is deciding which one to get.

Many Nerf fanatics have struggled with this debate, as both blasters are just so similar, and the only difference really being the looks and length between the two.

Nerf N-Strike Mission Kit with Tactical Light and Ten Micro Darts fits Longshot, Maverick, Recon, Nite Finder, and more

Nerf N-Strike Mission Kit with Tactical Light and Ten Micro Darts fits Longshot, Maverick, Recon, Nite Finder, and more Review



This accesory set is a must-have if you have a Nerf gun with a tactical rail. The light is invaluable for searching closets and whatnot for your enemies in the dark. Avoids the need to duct tape on a flashlight for your night rounds of Nerfing. The darts are amazing! They are longer than the supplied ones and therefore shoot much farther. They also sting more when you get hit. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED.

--Update--
After testing, this light is much brighter than the one supplied with Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 Dart Blaster. It says on the product name that it "fits Longshot, Maverick, Recon, Nite Finder, and more". That is only partly true. The light fits the guns listed, but the darts only work with Maverick and Nite Finder. Very deceptive on the seller's part. Still, when I got this I had the Hasbro Nerf N-Strike Firefly REV-8 and the bullets were phemonenal.



Nerf N-Strike Mission Kit with Tactical Light and Ten Micro Darts fits Longshot, Maverick, Recon, Nite Finder, and more Feature


  • Upgrade your blaster!
  • Includes 10 Micro Darts and green light for night missions!
  • Attaches to most N-Strike blasters!
  • For ages 6+.



Nerf N-Strike Mission Kit with Tactical Light and Ten Micro Darts fits Longshot, Maverick, Recon, Nite Finder, and more Overview


This Mission Kit comes with ten micro darts that fit in all Nerf N-Strike products. It also comes with a tactical light which can be affixed to the rails of all the N-Strike toys including the Hornet, Nite Finder, Longshot, Recon, and Maverick. The light is green and is great for night-time play.

Wobbly - David Clabault - Oshkosh, WI USA
The light mounts on the rails exactly as it is supposed to, but it wobbles all over the place when the gun is moved. I would expect it to be more secure.


Good For what it is. - Echnalaid -
For what it is, it's pretty good for a light. The ammo is just there. This could be good for a night war, but there are only a few guns that can use goodly. Vulcan , Switch Shot, and Recon are the only guns worth using it with.

Top 10 Best Nerf Guns of All Time

Nerf products have been around for about forty years, providing a lot of fun without too much damage. Starting with foam balls, they have since spent years improving and expanding their product selections. The top ten Nerf guns are a mix of those that have been around since the beginning and those that are around today.


In 1991, the first Nerf gun, a bow-and-arrow type, could shoot a foam arrow sixty feet, one of the farthest shooting weapons the company has made.


The Nerf Ballzooka, released in 1994, can shoot fifteen balls in less than six seconds.


In 1995 the Nerf Crossbow was the first weapon that could shoot two kinds of ammo, both arrows and darts.


The Nerf SuperMAX 3000, released in 1997, this blaster has an automatic rotating chamber that can shoot eight arrows fifty feet.


In 1998 Nerf made the Nerf Lock 'n' Load, a little single shot gun with a fifty foot range.


1999 saw the release of the Nerf PowerClip DX 1000. Using pump action the gun can shoot Nerf darts seventy-eight feet.


The Nerf N-Strike Unity Power System was released in 2004. Heavily influenced by real weaponry, it is noted for its versatility. It can shoot three types of ammo and can also be disassembled and used as three separate guns.


The revolver style Nerf N-Strike Maverick, released in 2006, is considered Nerf's best selling blaster of all time, shooting six darts as fast as you can pump.


The Nerf N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25 was released in 2008 and is the biggest, most powerful gun they ever made. Its twenty-five dart clip can be unloaded in less than ten seconds.


The newest Nerf gun, to be released this Fall, is the Nerf N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS 35 Blaster. With a thirty-five dart cache, it will have the highest capacity of all Nerf guns.

Clear Nerf Guns - Which Ones Are Available Transparent?

It used to be that just one Nerf gun was available clear, but now it seems Nerf has stretched the popularity of what used to be one clear Nerf gun, into a complete line of 5 as of 2010 (late 2010 to be exact).

First, it was the N-Strike Maverick which made a debut in a clear special, limited edition form. I guess its only appropriate that a blaster as popular as the Maverick REV-6; 4 million of which were sold, be honored with a special edition release.

But now, as Hasbro is releasing more and more Nerf blasters, the demand for "new" is at an all-time high. So I guess the people at Hasbro have decided it was time to spread the love.

In honor of a new release set for late 2010 - a mystery blaster at best, Nerf is releasing 4 more blasters in clear shells to join the Clear N-Strike Maverick.

Which blasters will be available transparent?

Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 - one of the more versatile Nerf guns available.
Nerf N-Strike Raider CS-35 - a drum clip toting pump sporting a cool digital camo skin.
Nerf N-Strike Deploy CS-6 - a 2 mode toy gun that transforms with a push of a button.
Nerf N-Strike Nite Finder EX-3 - an original pistol that comes with a red light-scope.

These clear Nerf guns will be available for a limited time. You can expect to see them on shelves sometime summer 2010, as they are set to "clear the way" for the new one which will be released September 9th, 2010.

Nerf N-Strike Review



This gun is awesome it has a great pistol the hornet is also good...but the Titan is BEAST it shoots up to 60 feet with great accuracy and power but when all three combined there is no way you will lose in a nerf war.

  • DVD no longer included
  • System comes with DVD, blaster gun, micro darts, 3 blasters and 1 mega-missile
  • For 1 or 2 players ages 8 years and up

Enlist, engage, enforcewith the Nerf N-Strike system. The DVD-based system lets you take on secret missions to carry out justice against Kree Dalenn and his evil drones. Put the DVD in a player to launch the missions and take part in them yourself by blasting Nerf arrows at your TV (they stick!). See how many targets you can hit and how long it takes you to vanquish evil Kree Dalenn and his accomplices. System comes with DVD, blaster gun, micro darts, 3 blasters and 1 mega-missile. For 1 or 2 players ages 8 years and up. Imported. 18Lx12W".


Nerf N-Strike Specifications


Three Nerf blasters are all contained in one awesome unit of soft foam rubber destruction. And because it’s soft foam rubber, of course, very little actual destruction will take place. The Scout Blaster is a basic Nerf missile pistol with one dart available. The Hornet ups the ante a little with six shots available and a slightly longer shooting radius. The Titan Blaster also has only one projectile but it’s built for distance, firing, in our informal test, a good 50 feet. Put them all together in one unit for an impressive arsenal that is still mostly harmless, although it would be good to be careful around lamps. --Charlie Williams

The missle is WAY fun - M. Ash -
But the pump likes to break. Just had to buy a replacement in fact, apparently it won't hold-up to four 12 year olds playing "nerf war" for a couple hours. Will tell you that I bought this online at T-R-U for .

Nice idea but broke quickly - David M. Johnson - CT
The missle works nicely and the single shot in fine, but the multi-shot worked great for about ten minutes, then stopped for good. Returned it for another unit. The second lasted about two weeks and then had the same problem. I think its in the garbage now.

The pump doesn't work for an hour - Y. Ke -
My son got it for Christmas gift. He only played it for less than an hour. The pump doesn't work any more. I went to the store for exchange but the new one had the same problem at the beginning. I had to go to the store again to get refund. It was fun when it works but not for long.

Outdoor Sportsman - Rapid Fire Shotgun

Outdoor Sportsman - Rapid Fire Shotgun Review



Ok. So out of the box it performs poor. But then again most all nerf guns do so that is really irrelevant. By standards of a professional nerf modder (my modded blasters sell for over 0) this blaster is amazing. It can be transformed from a weak child's toy that ranges 10-15' to a dominating weapon that will hurl foam darts over 100'. This and the pump action shotgun are the two best currently produced nerf type blasters. Like most nerf type blasters you will need to modify the barrels to shoot the optimal "stefan" style foam darts. The darts that are included are similar to the older style nerf darts called MEGAS. They can still be ordered from Hasbro directly. however the company that produces this blaster also sells refills of the same type darts it comes with. Amazon does not however sell them. If you do want to use standard common nerf type ammo you can do that also.

Here is an example of my own skills put into this blaster.

10 yr. old loves it - Debbie Kemp - Upstate, NY
My son's recent obsession with Nerf guns broadened a little when he saw this. He loved the shotgun look and was very pleased with it.

blaster - diamond jim -
This gun is a dud! not nearly powerful enough. It shoots three feet before the darts start to droop and fall to the ground. At times the thing even jams up with the darts. Don't waste your money.

Nerf N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35 Dart Blaster - Blue Review



This gun is by far one of the best Nerf guns that they've put out. Even if this gun came with a regular magazine and they hadn't even thought up the drum magazine... it would still be one of the best. The drum magazine with huge dart capacity just puts this gun over the top with how awesome it is. I had a battle outside with a friend who had just bought the Nerf Longstrike sniper rifle. I was a bit worried cause of how big his gun was, but I totally OWNED him. My gun kept shooting, and shooting, and shooting, and when I thought I was out I still had like 4 shots left haha. It shoots really straight, really far, and it's really great. I have been a fan of Nerf for a while, and have modded many guns to improve their quality, and I'd have to say this is by far one of the best guns out of the box that shoot well besides the revolver Nerf Maverick.

Pros:
Drum Magazine (huge capacity!)
Pump action means you never have to take your hand off the gun to cock it, so you never lose sight when shooting an opponent.
Slam Fire mode means you hold down the trigger, and just pump the gun and it shoots really fast. Although you lose accuracy.
Retractable Stock is removable and can be put on other guns, like the Recon. Plus it looks like a real gun stock.
Comes with lots of darts!

Cons:
With the bulky drum magazine, it leans to one side when you hold it, but if you let it rest on your arm, it doesn't matter.
Didn't come with any other accessories for the railing system like a sight or anything.

Get this gun, it's one of the best Nerf guns yet.

Maximum Firepower and Versatility
The CS-35 features a durable plastic frame, intended for intense play. It is based a classic Tommy gun design, complete with a drum magazine. This magazine can be used as an accessory with any other compatible N-Strike blasters. The CS-35 comes with an adjustable stock, which you adjust to fit the length of your arm. It also has a tactical rail, which you can equip with a variety of N-Strike accessories.

With a 35-dart capacity, the CS-35 has a truly massive payload of foam. Because of this, you might expect it to be a bit cumbersome, but it is actually surprisingly mobile. The blaster is lightweight enough to sprint with, and you'll be able to blind-fire around a corner with ease. You also shouldn't have to worry about running out of darts. The CS-35 comes with 35 darts. The darts are gentle and soft, so younger kids will be able to get in on the action.

There is one downside to the huge dart capacity: each dart has to be reloaded individually, so preparing the blaster for play can take several minutes. Still, the fun you will have is well worth these moments of tedium.

Blast Your Enemies Away
The CS-35 fires reliably in battle, and is free of the jamming that often plagues Nerf guns. It uses a pneumatic pump to propel the darts, allowing you to be in control of the rate of fire. The pump allows for two blasting modes -- multiple darts at a time, or single shots. The multiple-dart mode is particularly fearsome, since it will empty all 35 darts in a matter of seconds.

What's in the Box
Nerf N-Strike Raider CS-35 blaster, drum magazine and 35 darts.



The blaster carries up to 35 darts in the drum magazine and uses a pump-action system for rapid fire. The tactical rail is compatible with most N-strike accessories and the adjustable stock delivers a comfortable fit for kids six and up. View larger.

Nice Gun - -
This Nerf Gun is a great one. When you open the box you can see the massve power right away. Also the only problem is when, you have to re load the massve drum. The two different firing modes are nice. but the best part is when you get into a war. The gun is not to heavy meaning that you can run faster.(unlike other guns). Also if you are firing it takes a long time to fire ALL 35 darts. The down side is you have to worry about losing your darts because there are so many. The range is good 20-30 FT., and is farily accurate depending on your dart. So this gun is really good and probably the best so far.

5 out of 5

Great Gun - Nerf Dude - Somers, NY United States
i think it is a great gun. the slam fire mode is really cool. You hold the trigger in and pump the handle back and foward. it shoots far too. i got mine 2 shoot 40 feet angled. the drum mag is great, but it makes the gun lean to one side. the only other bad thing is that sometimes the darts go 40 feet, but sometimes they only go two. it has a adjustable stock, and 2 tactical rails. the gun is so cool, the person you are shooting at will have no idea that 35 darts are about to slam into him:)

OMG - Sandra K. Brown -
Okay a lot of people i know say this gun is sucky. ITS NOT. this is by far the greatest nerf gun yet. pros con
awesome
cool
slamfire mode
ammo capacity
techno camo (blue)


cons
you have to wait for it while opening the cool box

great gun!

Nerf Whistler Darts 36pk

Nerf Whistler Darts 36pk Review



The whistler darts is the most fun to use. It is not loud but with enough distance and speed, it does make a little whistle. It won't work with our Recon CS-6, but that is the limitation of the gun. It works fine with the Maverick and with the single shooter EX-3. It shoots faster than the suction darts.

Fast darts, don't whistle - Anonymous - Nowhere, ND USA
These darts are faster and fly farther than the standard suction-tip darts. The advertised "whistling" is only present in less than 30% of shots, and is not very noticeable even then. The darts might be fun for battles with friends, but I don't think the whistler function works well enough to have been given prime billing in the product name.

better than the suction darts - -
theese darts are the best nerf darts the heads dont fall off they shoot further than the suction darts and they are alot more accurate the only problem is the person can here them coming but i dont care i reccomend these darts

Nerf N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25 Blaster - Yellow

Nerf N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25 Blaster - Yellow Review



The number one problem with a toy gun this complex is going to be function. I was worried when I bought it in a Thanksgiving morning sale for at Meijer that it would be a short lived toy that would not even last long enough for my then 21 month old son to really get to enjoy it. Granted it has been only 4 months since then, but the gun is in great shape and fires well. It will jam from time to time, but I find it to be a human error and not the mechanics of the gun. A lot of the immediate malfunctions that the 1 star reviewers have given the gun may be a result of handing a 4, 5, 6 year old, or what not, a more advanced piece like this and not having any instruction (maybe the parent also would not be able to offer any insight). The Vulcan is modeled very closely off of the US military's Squad Automatic Weapon or M249 and its bigger brother the M240G medium machine gun. Personally, I was an assaultman in the Marine Corps and was trained with the SMAW rocket launcher and demolitions, but I did get to use both of these automaitc weapons a few times and worked with many Maichine gunners 0331 and rifelman 0311. I am not going to force my son to join the military or be in the infantry, but if he chooses to do so he will have a good handle on how to effectively load, carry and get behind a belt fed weapon. These last reasons are why I gave it a few stars for educational value, there is more mechanical knowledge with it than most toys and it could actually help lead to a career. Finally, be good to the gun; figure out how to load it properly. Make sure the "teeth" on the feeding tray line up with the belt and that the first dart is directly lined up with the barrel. Have fun.

Nerf N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25 Blaster - Yellow Specifications


The Nerf N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25 gives you the auto-blasting advantage when you're at foam-filled war with your friends and enemies. Children and adults ages 6 and up will love the EBF-25, the largest full auto blaster that Nerf makes. It lets you shoot 25 sonic micro darts at up to 3 darts per second for an offensive assault.

What We Think


Fun Factor:

Durability:

(what this means)

The Good: Machine gun-style Nerf gun fires multiple shots per second

The Bad: The included 25 darts run out fast; gun is a bit too heavy for running around with

In a Nutshell: A great addition to any Nerf artillery, the Vulcan EBF-25 provides an advantage thanks to the sheer force of shooting 25 darts in ten seconds

At a Glance

Ages: 6 and up
Requires: 6 D batteries


This large, brightly colored Nerf gun shoots 3 darts per second.View larger.


25-shot belt feeds through the gun for a rapid-fire onslaught. View larger.
Full Auto Design Gives You a Quick-Firing Advantage
The first thing we noticed when we took the EBF-25 out of the box was how substantial it was. The gun itself was large, brightly colored in yellow and orange, and heavy enough for it to be a burden for quick missions; accessories included a tripod, ammobox, and ammobelt. The instruction booklet did a good job of describing the assembly process, which took about ten minutes. There is a handle that allows you to easily carry the gun around, but we would have appreciated a strap even more.

The darts are held inside an ammobox in a 25-shot belt, which is fed through the gun. You'll feel like Rambo when you carry the gun, or sit it on its tripod for taking out enemies by the bucketload. After we'd installed the required six D batteries (not included), we pulled the trigger to see the gun work methodically through our belt of darts. It took only 10 seconds to blast through the included 25 darts, flinging them thirty feet across the room. We wished there were more darts included in the box since it seemed a bit silly that we needed to spend a few minutes to pick up the ammo, and then reload them onto the belt, after shooting for only about ten seconds. A refill pack can be purchased separately, which, we think, would be a wise investment if you want to effectively beat your enemies.

The gun also has a single-shot mode that lets you shoot with extra precision. Rather than battery powered, you have to pull back on a spring-loaded lever, and then use the trigger release lever to shoot the dart. In our experience, you can achieve a little bit more distance this way than with the auto-fire mode.

Tactical Rail System Allows for Fun Additions
The Vulcan EBF-25 features the Nerf Tactical Rail System, allowing it to use most N-Strike accessories, such as the night vision Tactical light accessory for night-time missions.

For those interested in Nerf-fights, the Vulcan EBF-25 should be in everyone's artillery; the rapid-fire design gives players the advantage when engaging the enemy, and is ideal when it can be used on the back of a moving vehicle, or a stationary setting.

A fun concept, but falls a bit short - Adam J. Frank - San Francisco, USA
In the interest of full disclosure, I'll point out that this gun was purchased and used by grown men chasing each other around a corporate environment in an ongoing series of NERF wars, so if you're purchasing this for a child, this review may not apply.

I used the Vulcan with the micro sonic darts it came with, as well as the streamline darts we have around the office, which are both supported by the gun. The biggest problem I've run into is darts jamming between the dart belt and the barrel. This seems to happen quite frequently with either type of dart, and makes for a fairly lackluster ambush of your beloved co-workers.

Another interesting thing about this gun is it takes 6 D batteries, which adds a considerable amount of heft to it. It has a handle on top which makes carrying it around easier, and makes its ideal firing position from the hip. Even with the tripod detached (which is completely incapable of supporting the gun's weight on its own) the gun is really not meant to be fired from shoulder level. And despite the 6 D batteries, the range wasn't that much better than the pump-action N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35, and it's a lot less accurate.

Like most NERF weaponry, they go well out of their way to make sure this device could never be mistaken for something that could do any real damage. This gun is ugly to the point of laughter.

Despite its flaws, it does have good battery life, and has a fairly low price point for a fully-automatic toy. The belt was easier to reload than I'd anticipated (a fair bit easier to load than other NERF-style magazines I've encounted, like the CS-35). If you're looking for something to occasionally spray darts all over the place for a few seconds (when it's not jammed), or set on your desk as a deterrent for any preemptive strikes, this may fit the bill. That said, I probably wouldn't purchase another one of these, at least not for the take-no-prisoners world of office warfare.

Jam Away - D. W. Lucky - NJ USA
Unfortunately this did not last long as it jammed on day 2 and while it looks cool I cant even get it to shoot one dart anymore. Let alone my son figuring out how to unjam this thing. Disappointing!

Not as great as it would appear - Ken Zirkel - Somewhere in New England
It seems like it would be a fun toy. However:

1) It's way too big to carry around; it has to stay on its stand, which completely limits playability

2) it jams all the time

3) it shoots way more bullets at once than you would ever need; it encourages excess over skill or accuracy

4) It's just way too much gun to be "fun". Give me a simple suction-cup dart gun anytime over this.

NERF N-STRIKE Vulcan EBF-25 Value Pack

NERF N-STRIKE Vulcan EBF-25 Value Pack Review



Have you read my other Nerf blaster review?

This is another blaster for those who like to tinker. As sold, it's a big heavy effete lump of intimidating plastic. It takes 6 D-cell batteries, but if the voltage drops a little, it will fail to cycle. No, the batteries aren't dead. They're just not strong enough to power the motor.

But there's a VERY easy solution. 9-volt batteries!! There's a very nice video online for what must be the best Vulcan hack to-date.

Remove the battery tray
Wire two 9-volt batteries in series (+ to -)
Attach to the contacts in the tray(+ to +, - to -)
Reinstall battery tray

Now you have enough juice to cycle the motor and deliver darts at a decent rate and power. But it's only just decent. 25 rounds per belt and a range comparable to an unmodded Maverick just doesn't add up to the sort of suppressive fire this SHOULD be able to dish out. Though swapping belts may make you feel like Rambo, it's too slow of a process in cubicle warfare.

For my money, the solution is a Recon with 35 round drum:
Drums swap out as quickly as a mag
Each drum hold 35 rounds (10 more than a belt)
A Recon without barrel and stock is very compact

Sadly, the drum is not yet available without the purchase of a Raider, but it will be. But buying a Raider isn't a bad idea. The Raider is a lousy blaster, but in addition to the drum, it comes with an excelent telescoping stock that will attach to a new Recon. Older Recons like mine with the "ARMED" tube will not function with this stock.

a cruel joke for kids - familyof4dad -
Let me start by saying that this gun was not bought for an adult who plays with it at the office. Give me a break, at my "office" I work 12 hour shifts doing back breaking labor. No, I took a radical approach and bought this gun for my son for christmas.
From the start the ammo box would not stay locked into place. The nerf bullets easily slip out of the belt when trying to load. Misfires one out of three times.
Bottom line what looked really cool in the box turned out to be a big let down for my son. Nerf, get it right or dont bother making it.

PS>If this review helps to keep this "toy" out of anyone elses home then I will feel as if I have done a good deed.

Don't waste your money!!!! - Michael T. Dunbar -
This toy is pretty cool when you first get it out of the box. However, after 3 days of use (Christmas, 2008) I found it stopped working all together. I could hear the motor trying to do something and I checked that the batteries were good, but the gun would not fire.

After the first of this year I contacted the merchant (Toys R Us) and asked them what I should do. They told me that I would need to contact the manufacturer (Nerf) regarding the matter. They told me that Nerf would probably want me to send it back. I tried to contact Nerf, but found that their website would not allow me to navigate the drop down menu for Customer Service (how convenient).

After several months, I decided to open up the gun and try to at least review the working mechanism to determine what might be wrong. I found the most worthless plastic parts (very little electronics) to ever be spewed out of the petroleum industry. A lot of parts had flash still on them, the gear box (all plastic, not metal) had gears that barely, if at all, fit together and various other defects in the plastic molding that come from shoddy, half baked, curing or extrusion.

If your considering buying this product, I would recommend you ask the merchant about a clear path to returning the item should it have problems. As for me, I look forward to the challenge of trying to repair it myself and try to enhance it so I can say my gun is faster and cooler than the original.

My friend has this gun and he has let me borrow it a few times. It rocks!!!!!! The range is awesome, and it is easy to reload. Other guns may be easier, but if you're a good Nerfer, this gun provides awesome shooting.

Cons:

Darts sometimes fall out of the holder
Trigger is hard to press with one finger (I use my trigger and middle finger)
After using the longshot for so long, I sometimes try to push the reloading mechanism and fumble (my con)

Nerf N-Strike Firefly REV-8 Specifications


Don’t let something as inconsequential as nightfall or even total darkness stop you from having fun shooting Nerf projectiles all over the place. This Nerf weapon is built for nighttime maneuvers, featuring eight glow-in-the-dark darts that can either be loaded up for rapid fire or stored on the back of the weapon for later use. Some parts light up with a soft glow thanks to a pair of AA batteries that are required but not included. The batteries don’t effect the gun’s charging, which is still done by pump action. The range of the projectiles didn’t quite reach 30 feet as promised on the box but we still had an awful lot of fun shooting Nerf darts across a darkened room. --Charlie Williams

Fun but darts sometimes fall out - undertheshrine - Albany, CA USA
I like the glow in the dark concept and the shooting mechanism, but sometimes the darts fall out. Overall a fun toy to play with though.

OK, not stellar - F. Barrett - Brentwood, TN USA
Since our other sons were getting Nerf guns, we got the third son this one so he would be able to join in if he wished. He's not very organized and it hasn't taken long to lose most of the darts. He's more musically - oriented, anyway and doesn't play with it much, but does seem to have a good time with it when he does bring it out. I'd recommend it; the glow-in-the-dark darts are pretty cool, anyway.

Very poor quality. - Lobster Sneakers - Washington, DC
So my neighbor is this disgusting old fat man who just constantly "accidentally" leaves his trashcans in my driveway. And it's like, I've told this smelly SOB several times that he can't do that, but he always just ignores me. He also uses this really loud leafblower to blow all kinds of debris and whatnot into my yard.

So I decided that enough was enough and I needed to get back at him in some way. I needed a weapon.
So I peruse the internet for fully automatic weapons or like a chain gun or something but it turns out I needed a permit for most of these. And if that wasn't bad enough, the price tags were OUTRAGEOUS!

I opened up Amazon and looked for some really hardcore weaponry to combat this smelly nuisance with, and lo and behold I saw the N-Strike Firefly REV-8. I thought, woah, this thing looks like some kind of futuristic alien space rifle! Seeing that it glowed in the frigging dark cinched the deal, because now I can break into my neighbor's house in the middle of the night, creep into his bedroom and then BAM! Flashbang and a bullet right between your beady eyes!

So I buy it, wait a few weeks (which were dreadful, he left his trashcans in my driveway every day) and it finally arrives. The first thing I noticed was that the ammunition for this weapon was not bullets, but instead some rinky-dink foam darts. Okay, well, that's all well and good I suppose, I loaded it up and tried to fire off a few gangster hip shots like I see those rap stars doing in movies about themselves. I realized then that I had to pump some little tab to make it fire! This was just turning into a worse and worse use of my money. I decided to continue with my original plan though, and I hopped the fence separating my yard from my neighbors.

As I approached the door to his house, I tripped and fell and knocked one of my teeth out as my face his his front steps. Not being one to give up, I cried for 15 minutes and then came to his front door. I tried shooting the lock, but the stupid little foam darts couldn't break it apart. I then tried beating his door down with the gun, but no such luck could be had.

My neighbor, apparently awoken by the noise, came to the front door and asked me what I wanted at that godforsaken time of night.
I raised the rifle to his face, yelled out a witty catch phrase ("lights out!" I said. It's funny because the gun flashes), and squeezed off a few rounds into his face. The horrible ham monster knocked my gun out of my hands and punched me in the face.

So thanks a lot, Nerf, you ruined my life even worse. I hope your children disappoint you.

New Nerf Guns For 2010 - Nerf Longstrike and Deploy CS6

The future is brighter and the future is now. New toy blasters released by Nerf are going beyond expectations and taking down targets every where. Whether from a distance or through the dark, Nerf guns of 2010 give you an advantage over the enemy like you've never had before.

Target your enemy before they come any closer with the long ranging Nerf N Strike Longstrike CS6. This powerful weapon knocks off a target from 35 feet away and has an impressive blue barrel extension that stretches the blaster to three feet. No other Nerf gun has the range of this newest air-powered blaster.

The battle becomes even more interesting when long range weapons come into play. Employ precise aiming with tactical rails and the flip-up sight included on this awesome new shooter. Any target, no matter how close they get, should beware of its surprising and unsurpassed power.

Rapid fire is at your finger tips with the quick-reload clip. The long ranging, fast firing weapon holds up to two clips and one is already included in the set. Add in six Click-Systems darts along with the clip, a flip-up sight and the barrel extension and you are armed for anything.

Another ground-breaking introduction in the Nerf guns of 2010 is the N Strike Deploy CS6. More than a blaster, this pump-handled weapon changes into a flashlight for tactical maneuvers in the darkness. Find your target with the light and quickly convert back to the blaster to take it out right away. Innovative and essential, this gun carries many offensive possibilities.

Swing the weapon over your shoulder with that handy carrying strap included and count on rapid fire from the quick-reload clip. Six Click-System darts are always included and three triple-A batteries will be needed to take advantage of the flashlight feature.

Nerf N-Strike Maverick

Nerf N-Strike Maverick Review



When I was looking for a nerf gun, I wanted one I could modify. This is a great gun to get into the experience of modding nerf guns.

It's a nerf gun, so how educational can it be? That being said, it's still educational in that you can experiment with making your own darts of varying lengths, you can test different springs (if you find some that fit), you can modify the barrel to slide out further, make barrel 'clips' (if you have a spare gun), etc... so there are things to be learned, if you wish. There are also a great deal of youtube videos that demonstrate the different mods, which makes it considerably easier (and somewhat safer).

As a toy, it's great. It's durable, simple, and it shoots things. What more can you ask for?


Nerf N-Strike Maverick Feature


  • Incredibly cool Maverick blaster has six-dart barrel with flip-open action for easy loading that puts you right back in the game
  • Rapid launching action increases your battle speed and accuracy!
  • Other features include pullback mechanism and auto-advancing barrel!
  • Blaster comes with six darts and instructions

Nerf N-Strike Maverick Specifications


Like the gun toted by the cowboy hero with whom it shares its name, the Maverick is a six shooter. Unlike the gun that other Maverick had, however, this weapon shoots only soft suction darts that can fly across a room and adhere to a window or other glass surface. The Maverick features a rotating barrel, which makes it easier to keep the firepower flying in the midst of heated battle and a futuristic look to better engender sci-fi fantasy play if you so choose. For a little extra power boost, the gun also has a pump mechanism. In our informal test, the darts flew surprisingly far and impressively straight. --Charlie Williams

The Nerf Of Me - Spudman - Pasadena, MD United States
I bought this "gun" on the recommendation of one of my high school tutoring students. He likes the Nerf Maverick and says that some of his teachers own them for shootouts in school. My purchase was made to dissuade those rascally squirrls who insist on eating from our backyard tray feeder.

Pulling back the spring loaded slide requires more than a little effort, making it quite a challenge for any five or six-year-old. The six included darts load into the rotating chamber, but only one shot can be taken per pullback.

Our birdfeeder is 26 feet from the deck, a distance I assumed would be within the range of this benign weapon. The darts reach the squirrels in the feeder (weakly) if I aim above their heads and adjust for wind conditions, temperature, and phases of the moon. I've only hit one squirrel and that was on the bounce as he was bounding away from the feeder.

I can only imagine that this toy would be lots of fun for a kid or a grown up kid as long as he or she has the strength to pull back the spring loader. I may be buying some of the whistling darts because I've read that in addition to making a cool, intimidating noise, they travel further



Is It Really Safe? - J. Speer - OHIO
I purchased this toy for my sons' enjoyment. I instructed them to be careful but I was confident in the safety of the toy. No where in the gun literature did it say that the gun would still fire even within close range. My youngest son suffered a contusion on the cheek and my older son had a red mark on his forehead for more than 2 hours. Beware - the gun DOES FIRE no matter where you aim it.
