Nerf has been in the toy business for decades. Starting out with a simple, inexpensive foam football, the company has become a multi-million dollar brand.
Each year when the holiday shopping season rolls around, you can depend on 2 things from the Nerf company:
- Plenty of high demand products to choose from
- Budget friendly affordability.
While the Nerf N-Strike Elite TerraScout may not qualify for that second category depending on your pocketbook or wallet, there are plenty of reasons to consider a purchase this holiday season.
In a hurry?
- Allows “out of sight” targeting
- For 8 years of age and older
- Offers recording of battles, in snapshots and video
- Rechargeable battery means saving money since battery replacement is not needed
- 400 to 500 shot capability on a single charge
What makes all of the Nerf projectile firing shooters good holiday gift giving choices is the fact that these toys do not fire hard pellets. Nerf began as a company making foam basketballs and footballs, and has added their line of dart-launching toys in recent years.
Soft foam darts are fired, instead of the hard plastic pellets and discs that older shooter type toys launched.
Nerf with this route due to understandable safety concerns and complaints from parents and others over the years that experienced physical and material damage from the “old school” shooters.
Nerf already offers a wide range of dart shooting toys, so what makes this one different? Most of the other Nerf dart shooters are hand-held devices that require you to see exactly what you are aiming to hit.
The Nerf N-Strike Elite TerraScout takes safe Nerf dart launching into the 21st century, with a drone that can target items you cannot see with line of sight vision.
This is an all-terrain remote control drone with a live video feed!
It offers the ability to video record your remote control Nerf battles, and view out of sight targets on your control’s LCD screen. The drone comes equipped with an easy-carry handle, and is durable, but light enough for kids to carry.
Nerf recommends this “R2-D2 on steroids” for children 8 years and up. It does require an SD card for recording videos and taking photos, and that is not included.
All operations are controlled, and viewed, on your wireless remote control.
The price tag of this high-tech Nerf toy means when you purchase one for your children, they are most likely going to be the envy of your neighborhood when they roll out this unique and one-of-a-kind piece of Nerf technology.
