Recently the kids and I had a chance to review several items from Zing Toys whose mission is to get kids up off the couch and outside to start playing. I’d been staring at the packages longingly for over a week waiting for the opportune (aka non-rainy) day to go try them out. Because we live in the wilds of the Seattle suburbs, that took awhile.
But last week the day arrived, not only was it sunny but it was warm, and it was the perfect day to go try out Air Storm Pop Rocketz, Air Storm Z-X Cross Bow and the Air Storm Zip-Bak Bow.
The Z-X Cross Bow was the hardest to use because of the amount of pressure required to pull back the arrow, but once you got the arrow locked in place -zippp-. It really flew. The Zip-Bak was definitely easier but the kids needed a few reminders about aiming (please aim at the rocks, not people, or the dog).
By far our favorite was the Air Storm Pop Rocketz. It was easy for everyone to use and lots of fun besides. So much fun we’ve already gotten one rocket into the neighbors yard, and one rocket on the roof of the house.
These things happen when you’re having fun. I can just about guarantee we will be needed a few more rockets in the future. After all, we need to make friends with the neighborhood kids, right?
The full line of Zing Toys can be found online and at toy retailers. You can also see all the products at www.ZingToys.com
I was given several Zing Toys to complete my review, but the opinion expressed is my own.
