Hasbro recently sent over the new NERF Rebelle Agent Bow and Arrows for us to try out and it is now my daughters new favorite toy. She turns 7 this month so and we are always trying to get her outside to play more. Now she's out there all the time making targets and practicing her best Katniss Everdeen pose.
It's an actual working bow and has an electronic sight to better line up the target. It comes with 3 arrows that have secret messages written on the tail and a decoder so that you can read them. It has a sheath that can be placed on the bow or on a pocket or belt for easy access to the arrows. Unlike most bows that require some skill in balancing the arrow on the hand grip, the Rebelle Bow slides the arrow into the guide so that it rests with no effort. They you can line up the sight with the red laser that shows up. It comes with three arrows that whistle and you can buy refill packs like we did.
This would make an awesome gift for girls that are looking for a run thing to do in the back yard. Archery is one of my favorite past times. I used to do it a lot as a kid myself. Here is a quick video of the NERF Rebelle Agent Bow and Arrows in action. I need to go find a ladder to get the one I shot up unto the roof down.
