Cupid might win hearts with an arrow, but you can win their love over and over again with 96 foam darts that come with the ridiculously fun X-Shot Turbo Advance blaster from Zuru. The barrel of this behemoth holds 40 darts, which allows for a satisfyingly long battle between dads and their blaster-wielding progeny. If friends and family are busy, Turbo Advance can also be enjoyed solo by setting up plastic cups or other targets easily scrounged from around the house. The Turbo Advance’s barrel is a cinch to detach and reload. Safety glasses (sold separately) are a must for these toys which clear a distance of 80 feet — and bounce off walls and trees with gusto! Recommended for kids ages 8 and older, the X-Shot Turbo Advance successfully entices kids to put their devices down and run around outside. What’s not to love?
