Nerf Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX Tagger – 2 Pack
Kids love to have Nerf wars, but one of the worst things is the picking up of all the Nerf darts! Even days after the war you find Nerf darts in all kinds of places over your house and yard.
Well the Nerf Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX Tagger 2-Pack does away with the darts as they will be shooting lasers at each other. Not real lasers like you see in Star Trek. But infrared lasers that will cause lights, sounds and even vibrations to happen to the other player who is shot. Kids are going to just love these and as they are officially Nerf branded they will be willing to give them a real chance, even though they do not have the standard Nerf darts.

Tips like, how to talk to girls, how to change a tire, cook a steak, throw a football, behave a traffic stop and many more great tips!
What we love about this book is that it can be taken two ways. One is that your child will read this and actually take some of these tips to heart which is great.
The other is that they will read this book and just get a real good chuckle out of it.
Many people swear by this book, but we think a big part of its charm is that you do not know if it is serious or if some of the tips are a little tongue in cheek!
