Still looking for a gift idea for a girl? How about the Nerf Rebelle Codebreaker Crossbow Blaster. Thanks to movies like the Hunger Games and Brave, my kids are into bows and arrows. Don’t worry parents, the arrows are actually soft foam darts. Obviously dads and moms need to tell their kids not to aim the crossbow at someone’s face. BTW, it’s classified as a girl toy on the Hasbro website, but I think it’s fine for boys too.
Do you want to know what’s really neat about the Nerf Rebelle Codebreaker Crossbow Blaster? The Hasbro toy features a special code that prevents other people from firing the bow. In addition, your kids can send secret messages with the message dart and decoder. Neat, right? My kids will love this crossbow. It’s awesome.
We don’t have room inside the house to test the range and it’s been raining every day for two weeks now, so were not able to verify the range. But according to the product literature, the Nerf Rebelle Crossbow has a range of up to 75 feet.
Nerf Rebelle Codebreaker Crossbow Blaster is intended for kids ages eight and up.
