Nerf FireVision Review

I was recently sent a Nerf FireVision football set by BzzAgent for my reveiw.  Having boys and living in the desert, I was eager to give this a try!  See when you live in the desert often you don't get to go outside and play in the summer time until after 6pm when the sun starts to go down and the temperature drops below 110.  Even now in October it's still in the high 90's during the day, but in the evening it is so much cooler.

So the idea with Nerf FireVision is that even when the sun is setting you can play football because the visors have small LED lights on them in two colors, red and green for spotting team members, and the ball has reflective material on it to make it appear to light up.  Here are a couple pictures from them learning to toss the ball to each other:









Overall I think Nerf has a great concept here with the FireVision, I mean the boys think it's super cool, it makes it easier to play ball outside in the summer evenings, and it's fun! My only complaint with this particular set is that the green LED lights are more difficult to see on the ball than the red LED lights.  Also as you see in the pictures above the reflective material will reflect any light including my camera flash!  In case the pictures aren't doing it for you, I had the hubby shoot a video of the boys playing with the Nerf FireVision at the park!





You can purchase the Nerf FireVision sets where you normally purchase Nerf products, and the sets come in football and basketball currently. In addition you can purchase the light up visors separately so you have enough for forming teams.  Our football set came with two visors and the ball, the basketball set comes with one visor, a ball, and a hoop.  The football set retails for $19.99, and additional visors for just $5.99.  You can purchase the basketball set for $14.99, and again just $5.99 for additional visors.  The FireVision is recommended for ages 6 and up. 

Birbitt Thinks this is a great toy for the kiddos, and would be a perfect addition to your holiday shopping list for the young ones in your life.
