It’s after lunch on Christmas Eve. . . have you finished your shopping yet? Or do you still have one or two things to pick up in a last minute run to Walmart? If you’ve got a special kiddo (or someone who is a big kid at heart) here is a last minute gift they are sure to enjoy–a Firetek Bow!
I’ve been telling you for weeks abou the Top 20 toys Chosen by Kids at Walmart for Christmas. That’s where the worlds largest retailer had hundreds of kids ages 18mo-12 years old try out the newest toys and give their opinion. Walmart used that information to choose the Top 20 Chosen by Kids toys for the 2014 Holiday!
As a Walmart Mom I have the fun opportunity to try out 5 of the top toys myself and share the experience with you. So far I’ve played with a creative toy–the Sew Cool Threadless Sewing machine, a remote controlled toy–the Disney Princess Palace Pets Magic Dance Pumpkin, a ride on/active toy–the Razor A Kick Scooter and a nifty interactive toy–the Zoomer Interactive Dino Boomer. This time I’m sharing the Air Storm Firetek Bow.
This bow is some serious fun! When I was down at Walmart HQ back in October we got to play with one in the big warehouse. You should have seen 20 grown women clamoring for the chance to shoot the bow down the width of the warehouse. So fun! You just put the arrow into the special loops, pull back and watch it fly! Up to 145 feet! The soft foam tipped “arrows” that are made to light up and whistle as they fly through the air, and the bow itself lights up as well. I haven’t had the chance to play with it outside in the dark yet–but I can see how fun that would be (plus you’d be able to find the arrows).
While I wouldn’t want to be hit in the eye with one, the arrows are made to be harmless. However this is an outside toy (unless you really aren’t too attached to your windows, light fixtures and knick nacks). The bow is also recommended for ages 8 and up–which I would agree is a good idea.
The features of the Firetek Bow:
- Loop-and-launch technology
- LED-activated power grip
- Fire-glow LED
- Fast-load, soft foam, long-range arrows shoot over 125′
I’d say that most kids, tweens and even some teens/adults would enjoy playing with this outdoor toy. So if you are stuck for a last minute gift for a kid on your list, check out the Firetek bow–only at Walmart.
