That’s not all we saw, with Hasbro rolling out the red carpet for its orange line of Nerf guns.
This year, kids of all ages can get into the Nerf Elite Hailfire, a new foam dart gun that can take six clips of ammunition for a high-speed foam shootout.
At $90 when it hits stores in November, the Hailfire is certainly not a cheap toy shoot-out, but the speed at which it throws darts at you makes it unlike any other toy gun you’ve ever seen before.
The GadgetGuy tried it out, using this writer as target practice, and as awesome as the weapon is, it’s worth noting that you still shouldn’t aim it at your face.
For that, you can try Hasbro’s upcoming Laser Tag game, arriving with compatibility for Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch.
You’ll be able to find the guns in packs of one or two, each with a slot at the top for holding an Apple iDevice, with a free augmented reality game available from the App Store which can turn real-life into a virtual shoot out.
Of course, you can play laser tag without the iPhone, but it will just be you shooting your friends with laser guns.
If you’re cool with that, you’ll find the packs for $60 for a single gun or $110 for two weapons when they arrive in October.
If laser tag isn’t your cup of tea, Nerf will also be encouraging you to play sports at night, with FireVision.
Designed for big backyards and open spaces, FireVision offers up some simple visors with LEDs on them, allowing you to see your friends and team mates at night, with red and green lights.
Specially designed balls come with reflector material on them – similar to the stuff used on roads – and as you throw a ball around, the strips reflect, making it possible to play ball-based games at night.
Football, basketball, and handball variations will exist, and the LED visors are closer to headbands with LEDs on them, making it a one size fits all, so all members of the family can play.
