When it comes to the art of foam warfare, more "firepower" is always a good thing, and for the growing legion of kids and grownups alike that take to the battlefield, more power often comes at an increasingly high price. A new player in the foam aisle is Prime Time International, and at the top of their arsenal sits the Dart Zone: Covert Ops Scorpion Gatling Blaster. Available this season as a Walmart exclusive, this thing packs 20 foam darts into a flywheel magazine that's capable of shooting up to 70 feet - and at the bargain price of just $19.97 MSRP, it lands firmly in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide.
Our foam-based arsenal is growing here at Rock Father HQ, and the most recent addition is the NERF N-Strike Elite Mega Magnus Blaster. Sent to us by Hasbro for review, this new offering for Spring 2014 is undoubtedly my favorite Nerf blaster thus far. Problem is, it might actually be a little bit too powerful, and it's already gotten me into a little bit of trouble.
