Get ready for more Nerfery

One of my favorite parts of the December toy markdowns is when everything Nerf starts being dirt cheap. Not because I buy any of it, mind you, but because I enjoy it when my friend with three boys calls me up and says, “Well, I had to buy the boys more weapons. I hope you’re happy.” (And I totally am!)

Anyway, the party’s just getting started, but already the Nerf N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire Blaster is down to just under $25—38% off its retail price of $40, and an unexpected discount to see just before the holidays. Usually the lesser guns and the accessories get marked down, but the big behemoths like this don’t. So hey, score if you’re in the market for massive Nerf firepower.

Less surprising, but even better, are discounts on two accessories you might want if you buy this blaster (or have any other N-Strike model): the Nerf N-Strike Flip Clip Refill is just $4.99 (69% off) and the Nerf N-Strike Elite Bandolier Kit is $7.34 (51% off). Perfect for making sure you never run out of darts!

And now—because no Nerf post would be complete without it—let us all bow our heads and remember: It’s all fun and games until you shoot your eye out, kid.

    Personally, I’m hoping to see some sales on the glow-in-the-dark darts. The new darts should improve my chances of finding the darts after epic backyard Nighttime Nerf Wars. That are, um, waged by the children…yeah, that’s it.

    My husband is in the Army and we live on a military base. EVERY SINGLE CHILD has monster Nerf guns, and it’s hilarious to watch them snipe each other on the playground. Even MORE amazing is the Great Nerf Dart Sort Out after each Nerf War. It’s all “I’m gonna GET YOU!” until everyone runs out of darts, and then it’s all super-kind words like “Oh, no, this one is YOURS” like they’re genteel British royalty. To me, they all look like little foam pieces of junk, but to 8 year olds they’re TREASURE.
