So, no good for 15, 16 or 17 year olds then. Odd

I think the product could be improved by firing darts with Velcro on the tip instead of a "sucker" made of rubber. Each crossbow pack could then be supplied with an 'apron' also made of Velcro with a target printed on it for hanging over your head so it covers your chest & back.

Then, playing with a partner who had also bought the same product would provide a bit more of a challenge to try to get the dart (or, hopefully, multiple darts per pack, with the option to buy a set of say, three, or five extra darts for a moderate fee) attached to the other player & in a higher scoring zone within the target.

Hopefully this modification will appeal to all (including 15 to 17 year olds!) & give some variety to the lesser-skilled "Nerf" gun games.

[EDIT]: ...and a pair of goggles with each set too.

was this price over a year ago when i bought it as a christmas present, well made and worth the money

Aye its all fun and games til some body loses an eye.

Barnett used to sell ones just like these, they were brilliant.
We used to play shoot the celebrity on the telly, but wouldn;t dare do that with an LCD now!

They were also accurate enough that we could face each other at opposite ends of the room & shoot each others dart out of the air. Wicked fun, well worth £5.99.

Funny how in films and cartoons the rubber ones stuck to their foreheads.

i can imagine a kid firing at an LCD and piercing the screen, watching all those tiny crystals run free.

You'll just have to aim your shots above the waist then

...but yes, the only reason for the darts to be made of hard plastic would be to propel the shot further & cause a greater amount of damage on impact. You could probably lessen the density of the plastic & put some larger flights on the darts.

(I'll add a set of goggles to my wish list above)

You put far too much thought into that. I do recon you could stick some velcro to the ends though (which would make thm safer too perhaps!) and make your own target 'apron' yourself. Let us know how you get on.

I remember several tellings off when I was at school that went along the lines of 'you'll have someone's eye out with that.'

Yet I've never met or even ever heard of someone's eye being 'had out'

So why allow me to chew it at all if the mouth is an orifice with direct access to said breathing apparatus &/or vital organs?

Yes, it has, and... erm, no it hasn't.

Eye, or crossbow?

I let my son but a toy wooden crossbow when we visited the Royal Armories in Leeds. It came with sucker-tipped arrows. It didn't take us long to find out that chopsticks fired much faster and further. It may have been bad parenting, but it was a lot of fun.

Edit. Ordered :}

I'm amazed that the PC brigade haven't had this banned as a weapon of mass destruction .

can anybody find a link to the extra darts everybodys talking about?

See comment #]7 by Tanchi & the original link for this deal ["go to deal"] at top right of this (and every page) in this thread.

The Play.com product page states "Sucker darts". Note the use of the plural of "dart".

Anyone got the link for the extra darts? cant see it on the website

Use the Amazon.co.uk search box & type
TOY CROSSBOW

A pack of darts is available from an Amazon Marketplace seller ("sportislife2008").

Amazon is also listing a similar crossbow but in Black.

Rubber tips off, get out the pencil sharpener.....

just ordered a pack of 12 darts from here, i think its cheaper than the amazon market place seller, plus you can use paypal to

Got this as a gift for one of my housemates last year. Hours of fun! Paid £10 for it at the time and it was well worth it. It went through a lot of abuse and held up just fine.

I should buy one of these so I can shoot my staff with it.
