May the Fourth Be With You #StarWars #PlayLikeHasbro

We are celebrating Star Wars Day with our new
 First Order Stromtrooper Blaster from NERF

Today is May 4th, and it is also Star Wars Day! I know a lot of people are celebrating in different ways. We're running our celebration over here by breaking out an Episode VII NERF First Order Stormtrooper Blaster.

Is it any wonder I never beat him in a NERF battle?
What better way to embrace the love of Star wars than by doing so in a friendy game of, "Run! He's got a NERF!" No, that's not really the name of a game, but it's invariably what we all say when someone taps into my son's arsenal. Let the record show: My youngest son takes his NERF collection very seriously. :)


The First Order Stormtrooper Blaster is a front-load, single shot blaster with a spring pull back to load it. This is the latest gun my son has added to his collection and it's standard NERF quality, which in a word, means 'excellent.' Included is the blaster itself, three darts and the instructions. It also has a sight on top of the tactical rail that you can use on other NERFs you might own.

In addition to the Star Wars logo being on the blaster, it is also printed on each of the foam darts.


The older boy is part chipmunk, he has half a donut stored in his cheek. ;)
That's okay, I'll take it... I was lucky to get this shot...these boys don't hold still when they play. 

Here you see my youngest son apprehensively posing for a picture with his big bro. He knows it's only a matter of moments before he's under attack. The struggle to hold still and smile, is real. That is especially true when a 'he-he-he' warning is emitting from his brother's lips. ;)

I think this NERF First Order Stormtrooper Blaster is the perfetct way to help celebrate Star Wars Day.

You can learn more about the NERF line by visiting the website. You can also follow on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Happy Star Wars Day to You All
&
May the Fourth Be With You!

That is so funny! Looks like both your boys are enjoying Star Wars Day. Hope the bigger one didn't run too fast with that donut in his mouth!

That is the coolest! Hopefully, your husband and son were better shots than the Storm Troopers from the movies. LOL

Oh my son Finn would LOVE the First Order Stormtrooper Blaster! I think it may end up on his wish list soon.

Pat Hatt said...

haha he better be ready to run, but when he comes locked and loaded like the first one there will be no running.

Both of your sons are mighty handsome.

May the fourth be with you. :)

Ha! May the 4th Be With You! I saw a meme that had that on and then it said "Because in 2 days it is the Revenge of the 6th."

Now that is fun! It's really cool that they modeled this Nerf gun after the stormtrooper blaster.

Everybody can have fun with Nerf guns.

That's so awesome! I never forget about May 4th and I always enjoy what people bring to the table, especially the dedicated videos and edited pictures they post online. You can't get any geekier than a blaster though! I hope the boys have a lot of fun!

The force is strong with these! I'd get me one of those First Order Storm Troopers Blasters. Not good inside my travelling bags though, haha.

If I want to amaze my nephews, i tell them I remember a time when there were no Star wars, lol. I actually remember sitting in a theater, about 12 years old, waiting to see the very first Star Wars!

My twins are Star Wars obsessed and my son totally wants this Nerf Stormtrooper gun! He has a bunch of other nerf guns, but he said his "collection isn't complete without it". He's currently saving his money for it! :)

My son loves Star wars. I love that they have this every year.

I have always loved Nerf products because they promote outdoor play and they are soft so you don't have to worry about the kids getting hurt. This was a creative way to enjoy Star Wars day.
