NERF Rebelle Review

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free NERF Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow from NERF and BzzAgent to try and review.

My boys love playing with their NERF guns.  We have darts all over the house.  My 9 year old daughter will play with them from time to time, but doesn't like to admit that she likes to play with "boy toys."  She says she'd be embarrassed if anyone saw her or heard about her playing with them.  Luckily, NERF has come out with a line of crossbows and blasters -- just for girls!  NERF Rebelle!

I was sent a kit from BzzAgent to try and review the Heartbreaker Bow from the NERF Rebelle line.  The kit included:
  • A NERF Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow
  • A Dart Refill Pack
  • A NERF Rebelle brochure
  • Rebelle-Themed Temporary Tattoos
  • Coupons to pass along

When I told my daughter that we would be getting to try the new NERF Rebelle line, she was so excited!  Finally, she was going to get to shoot darts with her brothers -- but, with her own gun!  Here she is with one of her little brothers, holding up the box.

The Heartbreaker Bow works like a real bow, but uses darts instead of arrows.  It comes with 5 collectible darts. Your daughter can blast darts up to 75 feet away!  The bow can stow up to 5 darts for easy reloading.

The bow is easy to load.  Just stick the dart in the front.  To fire, pull back on the string and then release.

It wasn't long before my daughter and her brother were shooting at each other with darts!

It would have been nice if the bow came with some sort of quiver to hold the darts.  We've already lost two!  Luckily, my daughter has her refill pack. [Note: I noticed later that you can buy a Dart Diva bag and belt separately.  It can hold up to 10 darts.]

Would you recommend it?
Definitely!  It's great that NERF has come out with a line for girls!  My daughter loves her bow and wants to get all the other toys in the NERF Rebelle line.  NERF Rebelle also has an interactive website:, where your daughter can create a NERF Rebelle-themed avatar and complete virtual missions.
