The Best Stuff At Toy Fair 2015

Once a year, toy companies from all over the world converge on New York to reveal what everyone will be fighting to buy their kids — or themselves — when the holidays roll around again. And once again we grabbed our cameras, put ourselves in the mind of a child (that was the easy part), and set out to find the most exciting new toys that will be hitting store shelves this year.


The Halo Needler Is Now A Real Dart Gun

Halo deathmatches are about to get real. (Except the whole dying part.) Mattel is turning the hit video game’s iconic sci-fi weaponry into awesome toy dart guns. First up: The infamous Needler.


Nerf's New Blasters Can Fire Foam Balls At Up To 113km/h

Nerf has long been known for making some of the most impressive toy weaponry kids can buy, but its foam dart blasters aren’t exactly known for their power or accuracy — until now. At Toy Fair 2015 in New York this weekend, Nerf will officially introduce its new Rival line starting with a pair of blasters that are capable of launching an inch-thick foam ball at speeds of up to 113km/h. Not surprisingly, the new line will also include face masks for added safety.


Great Odin's Raven! Nerf Made A Foam Version Of Thor's Mjölnir Hammer

With movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, and a new Star Wars film en route, it promises to be a banner year for toys. And everyone is getting in on the fun, including Nerf, who rarely indulges in movie tie-in products, but has revealed a foam version of Thor’s Mjölnir Hammer that you can safely bash your enemies — or co-workers — with.


Nerf's New Blaster Puts Four Spinning Barrels Inside A Spinning Barrel

If you’re going to call a toy blaster the “Doominator” it better deliver on a sense of despair and foreboding — at least for those on the wrong end of the barrel. And it looks like Nerf has done just that because its latest creation features a set of four dart-laden spinning barrels that revolve around a larger spinning barrel to deliver a near-endless barrage of foam projectiles.


Nerf's New Modular Blaster Lets You Build Your Weapon Of Choice

In a firefight when foam darts are flying everywhere, your hardware is as important as your skills with a blaster. And because everyone’s needs and preferences are different in the heat of battle, Nerf is introducing the N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 Blaster that can modified or reconfigured in at least 30 different ways.


You Can Fire Nerf's New Barrel Blaster As Fast As You Can Reload It

In the heat of battle, the time it takes to prime or reload a Nerf blaster could mean the difference between taking out your opponent, or taking a foam dart to the face. So today Hasbro has officially announced the new Nerf Mega RotoFury with a spinning barrel that lets users continuously hold the trigger and quickly fire off dart after dart every time they re-prime the blaster using its sliding mechanism up front.


The Best Nerf Gun For Every Kid (At Heart)

As a kid, I strapped a Nerf gun to my bicycle so I could dive bomb the neighbourhood kids while travelling — I imagined — at five times the speed of sound. As an adult, I’ve carried a foam-firing blaster to no fewer than three jobs. But a funny thing happened earlier this year: I realised my old guns weren’t any good anymore.


Nerf Rhino-Fire Review: The Most Badass Foam Blaster Ever Built

Remember when you had to pull back a Nerf gun’s plunger and load a new dart for every single shot? That was a loooong time ago. The new Nerf Rhino-Fire rains down 50 rounds of fully automatic flying foam from its dual drum magazines and twin oscillating barrels.


This Might Be The Most Fun You Can Have With A Nerf Gun

A Nerf gun is never not fun. If you see one of those laying around anywhere, at a toy store, in the office, in a kid’s bedroom, in your dreams, you have to pick it up and get goofy with it. So how can you have more fun with something our DNA says is never not fun? By adding explosions like mad genius Colin Furze.
