Nerf N-Strike Blazin Bow! From Hasbro! @HasbroNews


Boys love weapons. I came to grips with that fact many years ago. If my son is going to play with weapons, I am happy for them to have the soft ammunition that is part of the Nerf system.

This years hot item is the bow. It is great fun, and it is now part of our permanent Nerf collection, which is probably up to 10 different weapons at this point.

@Nickelodeon’s #TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Toys



This is an extended family that have been Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans for decades. I am including 2 of the newest and hottest toys out this season.

The Secret Sewer Lair was fun to build, and even for a 10 year old, fun to play with friends. After all we have had the figures from many incarnations from the series over the last 7 years. The Ninja Control Shellraiser is fun because it is an RC vehicle. We did have a different one a few years ago that shot out pizzas!

Side note, my adult nephews still hold onto to their colectibe TMNT toys. This franchise is Hot!
