5.0 out of 5 stars Get Your Ducks In A Row!, April 22, 2012
This review is from: Vortex Lumitron (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Holy Cow! The NERF VORTEX LUMITRON is a blast! When I pick out this toy, I thought that maybe my eldest daughter (14) *might* like it. But the moment it arrived, my husband and youngest daughter (6) rushed for it. Soon they had it opened and ready to go. But what to shoot at? Let's just say our house is a "target-rich environment." My youngest produced a number of rubber ducks which she lined up on an ottoman. My eldest stood and watched while the other two took turns and I watched distractedly from my computer. Soon, however, I overheard the eldest saying, "Say hello to my little friend!" I turned around to see her taking her own turn against the ducks. By now, they had added a small metal mailbox to the mix, and they were trying to shoot the ducks into the mailbox. This went on until dinner time and for several evenings thereafter.

I confess that I never even touched the thing - until yesterday. But I wasn't shooting at no ducks. I don't know what came over me, but I saw it laying there and I picked it up. Looking for a worthy target, and I am embarrassed to admit this, I spotted my husband's head. He was watching the news. The first three shots were high and to the right, but the fourth one hit him right on the neck. Only then did he take the threat seriously and protect himself. Where's the fun in that?

So yes, I highly recommend The NERF VORTEX LUMITRON. I can't compare it to others since this is my first such product, but my entire family loves it. Including me. I just prefer hunting live targets. ;-)

HA! I absolutely LOVE your review. So true and so funny! I needed a good laugh! May your shooting and aim get more and more perfect as time passes. Try shooting as the kids as moving targets or at unsuspecting husbands. What a great way to get rid of all of your frustrations!

Thanks for the laugh!

And the good review.

Pam

I laughed so hard at your 6 year old's "say hello to my little friend." My daughter and I will talk in movie references too though I am getting bad about rmemember-ing.

I do know that Sammy's dad will be DELIGHTED with this toy and he and the three year old will be fighting over it...LOLOLOLOL

It's funny how the parent and the kids fight over toys, isn't it? A sign of a great toy!
