Christmas Gifts for Kids – NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K Blaster and Nitro Flash Fury Chaos – NERF has been around for nearly 50 years now. Created by Parker Brothers, the toy brand is currently owned by Hasbro. The most popular toys from the company are dart guns, or also commonly referred to as the blasters,which shoot foam-based ammunitions.
Loyal fans of NERF will instantly recognize products from the brand, especially by the bright neon colors and soft textures just like the NERF balls, even when the toys are not actually weaponry style. Take the Nitro Flash Fury Chaos for example; it will not shoot any dart or disc, but miniature cars through a number of obstacles to please the playful minds. Even with that, it still retains all the good things from NERF with trigger action and reloading fun. And in case you are wondering, NERF also still keeps the Blaster series alive and well. In fact, one of the newest models called the Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K is quite menacing with up to 100 rounds capacity. Now that you are in the market to find great Christmas gifts for kids, look no further than NERF.
Nitro Flash Fury Chaos
Instead of firing darts or discs, the NERF Nitro Flash Fury Chaos shoots cars out of its barrel. It may not sound like too much fun at first, but the included accessories make the playtime much more attractive in reality. The set includes three mini foam cars with plastic wheels, long jump ramp, two pop-up targets, and six obstacles. Nerf is more popularly known for its weaponry toys indeed, and Flash Fury Chaos tries to combine the fun aspects of both shooter and car-blasting stunts. As a matter of fact, the play time will feel pretty much the same since you launch the car by pulling a trigger. The only major difference is that there is no battle action, unless you invite a friend for a race without a track.
- Actions-packed car blasting scenes
- Foam cars and plastic wheels for durability
- Easy to use with safety switch
- No battery required
- Lightweight mini cars for faster actions
The ammunitions are the cars, and the magazine is enough to hold all three mini cars. You can fire them all at any direction you want, but the included obstacles and targets are there for you to utilize. Judging by the accessories, it is easy to tell what NERF intention is: stunt car actions. Anytime the car hits the pop-up target, a small disc flies into the air for a dramatic scene. Since the cars are made of foam and plastic rather than die-cast, they are lighter and more forgiving when they hit any target.
NERF Blaster Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K
For the more intense NERF-style actions, you can’t go wrong with the Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K Blaster. Equipped with large-capacity magazine to hold up to 100 rounds and a big compartment for six D batteries, the toy gun is ready to take it to the next level. A major feature is that the gun is fully-automatic. Powered by either D batteries or NERF rechargeable Rival batteries, Rival Nemesis can shoot each round at the speed of up to 102 feet per second (or around 70mph). The package includes 100 rounds made of high-impact foam.
- Fully automatic NERF gun
- 100 foam high-impact rounds
- Battery powered
A conveyor belt guides the round to the flywheels behind the barrel. As the round reaches the flywheels, it simply gets flung out at intense speed. Please understand that although the rounds are made of foam, they still have considerable density; it will not cause any bruises in your legs or hands, but eye protection is mandatory. The rounds are also quite bouncy, so it will fly back in wayward direction once it hits a hard physical object. Blaster Rival Nemesis guns are outdoor toys for toddlers, so please be careful with this if you intend to play the toys indoor.
