I can’t tell you anything about this from a personal standpoint, as I am one of those horrible hippie mothers who never let her kids have pretend guns (though my son now attends a school program where they regularly build swords and machetes, so, I don’t claim to be logical), but I do remember that last year this Nerf N-Strike Stampede ECS was one of the hot items for Christmas. And right now it’s down to just $20 at Amazon, which is it’s lowest price ever. Plus, as we all know, once the toy clearance starts in earnest in a couple of weeks, Nerf darts are one of the things we’re likely to see going for cheap.
It’s got 4.5 stars with nearly 200 reviews, so there’s that. But perhaps most importantly: it gives you an opportunity to practice hollering, “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”
