My first experience with the NERF Vortex Revonix360 Blaster came on September 17, when I joined seven other Chicago-area Parent Bloggers at a Hasbro Hot Toys Lunch. Grownups playing with toys at a nice restaurant (312 Chicago) is always a good thing, but when when of these showed up here at Rock Father HQ last month, all bets were off. Recommended for Ages 8+, this bad boy holds 30 lightweight foam discs that can be fired up to 65' away! And, you can do trick shots like bouncing them off of things. It's surprisingly accurate, and the only blaster that I'm including in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. Lets just say it could get me into some trouble...
