New Tech Spins On Classic Fun ~ @NerfNation

With children of older ages, both tween and teen, I am accustomed to the draw of pushing limits and the appeal of new twists to favorite activities and games. Even if their adventures involve the comfort and safety of our own backyard, fun in the cloak of evening adds a much desired element of excitement no matter the activity.  Whether an evening dip in the pool, a game of basketball or wall ball or even a camp out, complete with tent, flashlights and spooky tales, if it occurs after the sun has set, the fun factor is greatly multiplied.

Much like the excitement of games of laser tag, keeping a supply of toys and equipment on hand to accommodate their evening antics helps ensure they will stay out of trouble and, as a secret added benefit, helps Mom keep track of their activities in a stealthy fashion.  When I discover a new contender for fun in the dark of evening or in the darkened rec room in off season, I am quick to snatch them up!

Lighted Hyper Bounce Ball, Lighted NERF Sports Frames

When I ran across the NERF FIREVISION collection, I knew they would make the perfect addition to my son's supplies for cold weather season sleepovers.  With cool, night vision Sports Frames, a tech-coordinated Hyper Bounce Ball, and the option to pick up addition frames for friends or a set complete with a mini NERFOOP , perfect for use indoors, even the tech-geek in me was piqued.

Cool, techy gifts for tweens
NERF Sports Frames and Hyper Bounce Ball coordinate together when powered by four alkaline batteries, which are included conveniently in the set.  Uber cool red lighting from the frames allows users to identify and find the lighted Hyper Bounce Ball.  The FIREVISION is equally functional in both daylight, interior light and in lack of light, although play in the dark certainly adds an extra element of fun!  Although my tween son and his friends have been enjoying their indoor play, they can't wait for a break in the weather to test out the Hyper Bounce Ball out of doors, as it boosts a 100 foot bounce range, adding significant value to the specialized lighting to help ensure they keep it in sight.

Gifts for Tweens, Active Tech Gifts
Ages 6+     $5.99 - $14.99
My family has always been pleased with the quality of other NERF products we have enjoyed over the years and our high opinion continues after putting the NERF FIREVISION Hyper Bounce Ball and accessories to the test.  Choosing to pick up additional sets to gift to my nephews for our upcoming holiday gift gathering was one of the easiest holiday gift decisions I have made yet this season.

We've had Nerf footballs for a long time. This set-up looks like fun. I'd just be afraid of the ball bouncing around indoors and breaking things.
