My kids absolutely love Laser Tag. While we have a couple places around here where we can play with friends, it does start to get costly. That is why we were super excited to try the Laser X Micro Blaster toys!
The Micro Blasters are the newest addition to the Laser X family which also include:
- the original Laser X, which blasts 200 feet
- a Long-Range Blaster, which blasts 400 feet
- and a Gaming Tower with 10-built-in games
The Micro Blasters might be small, but don’t be fooled by their size. They pack a lot of fun and can blast opponents up to 100 feet away! The receiver is on the arm. Reloading is simple. Just press and hold the trigger. The best part about them is that they all work together! All Laser X systems are designed to be able to play with each other, so you can get your whole neighborhood in a battle if you want! How cool is that?
We got a two player system which included two blasters and 2 arm receivers. The arm receivers glow and let you know when you have been hit. The kids took them outside to try them. While we waited until it was later in the day, the lasers did not show up as well in the light, but the kids could still tell when one of them had been hit.
The kids experimented close up before taking off in the yard, and as you can see in the picture above, even in the daylight, you can still see the armband lights. You can also see the lights on the blasters, They also make noise as you shoot at your opponent. The kids wanted to see how they worked in the dark, so they headed off to the basement to continue playing. They said that while you can play during the daytime, it is much more fun in the dark where all you can see are the lights from the blasters and the lights from the armbands. The kids also told me they want to get a few more so that they can get a group of their friends together to play.
The system is super easy to use. They require AAA batteries that are not included but are easy to add into the blasters. The packaging is not complicated either, which I appreciated because I really hate spending 15 minutes to open something. Overall, the kids loved the Laser X Micro Blasters! Miss Crankles really wanted to get her hands on them as well, but she is a bit small. I have a feeling in a couple years, she will take great pleasure in playing against Sissy or Bubby!
