With Dart Tag taking the make-believe shooting world by storm, this latest entry on the toy market should sell lots. The marketing blurb says,
“NERF DART TAG SWARMFIRE Blaster
Ages 8 years and up/Approx. Retail Price: $64.99/Available May
The first fully automatic DART TAG blaster in the collection, the NERF DART TAG SWARMFIRE Blaster will change the game of DART TAG forever! Players can launch a powerful stream of up to 20 darts, keeping opposing teams at bay. Requires six “C” batteries, not included. Will be available at most major toy retailers nationwide.”
Now I must admit that Yaffa’s Toy Retailer Magazine’s Editor Fiona Cameron, presented herself and Swarmfire Blaster at my desk recently to test this great toy gun. What can I say but, when you can get your hands on a full-auto “Blaster” and put it through its paces in the office, then your day goes up a notch.
We’ll just have to watch out that the Greens don’t try and ban it because it’s too much fun.
