Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

The Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow is part of the new line of Nerf Rebelle blasters and gear specifically designed for girls. The Guardian Crossbow features a more girl-friendly pink, white, and purple design but still has the same long-range fire power as some Nerf N-Strike Elite blasters. The Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow sends darts flying up to 75 feet. The crossbow features flexible bow arms and an auto-rotating six-dart launcher. Make sure the bow arms are snapped into place before you go into battle, load your darts, pump the slide, aim, and blast away. Launch one dart at a time or all six darts in a rapid stream. To switch to multi-shot mode, simply hold down on the trigger and pump.

Is It Fun?

Girls have been playing with Nerf blasters for decades so while the new line does raise the usual questions about gender stereotyping, we feel it will find its niche among trend-focused girls who want a blaster with a more fashionable look that still has the fire-power of the original Nerf. Nerf Rebelle will also appeal to girls looking to imitate popular female heroines such as The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen and Brave's Merida.

Who It’s For

The Nerf Rebelle Gaurdian Crossbow is for girls ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Six Nerf Rebelle-branded foam darts are included.

Additional blasters and other accessories such as the Vision Gear I'm wearing are sold separately.

There is a railing located on top of the crossbow where you can mount the Nerf Rebelle Mission Central App Rail Mount, which is sold separately.
