NERF Sent Us Super Soakers!

The time has come! Spring Break was this past week (or the one before that) for most kids in my area. It's a time that signals warmer weather and Summer fun being just around the corner. For some of you, warmer weather may already be a constant, but around Colorado, the weather stays bi-polar. So, we'll hope for the best.

To gear up for Spring/Summer 2014, our friends at NERF sent us the package seen in this video so that we can bring you info on some of the best toys to get!

Water Grenades Return to Shelves

Anyone up for a water fight, warriors? The other day, Perpetual Play posted an ad for what can be best described as water grenades. We've seen these Super Soaker products (or similar versions) pop up before at Toys R Us and places, but after I saw them on clearance last year, I was afraid they wouldn't return.I'm glad I was wrong!

The Perpetual Play Group has been cranking out products under a NERF license for a while now. They had some great releases under Super Soaker in 2012 with the Battle Shield, Assault Bunker and the Rocket Dart. They seemed to take the 2013 season off from Super Soaker, but at least the grenade-like throwable got a color update and are back for this year.

Speaking of water fights, a box just arrived from our friends at NERF. It includes a lot of the new NERF Super Soaker releases, so expect reviews on those to come up!! ~Chris

The Ultimate NERF Endgame - ThermoNERFular War

So, now that April Fool's is drawing to a close, let's get real. As you may have figured out pretty quick, this was indeed on of the fun pranks put on by the guys over at ThinkGeek. But now, you have the opportunity to push for it to become a reality! Get over to the reveal page and go to the bottom to vote for the NERF Nuke to get made into an actual thing. Would Hasbro ever go for it? Who knows! Is it worth the try? Yes! ~Chris

Warriors! Have you heard the latest news? The brains over at ThinkGeek just brought something out to level the playing field in your office, home or anywhere else that you can't or just won't face the enemy head on! You just have to see it to believe it:

I've been waiting for something to come along that's better than the Lanard grenade. The grenade is a great concept, but execution wasn't always the best. The bottom is weighted so that the tip (which houses the firing trigger) would generally hit the ground first, but that doesn't always work. I wonder the guys at ThinkGeek and Nerf did to make the Nuke more effective?
