After watching an afternoon’s worth of football on Sundays, you’re usually itching to hit the gridiron yourself with a few friends. But by the time all the games are done, it’s too dark to see the ball. Nerf Sports Firevision Football ($20) solves your pigskin problem with its glowing streak of light, giving your receivers the freedom to run routes that are actually longer than a loaf of Italian bread. Slap on the Firevision glasses and the ball will leave a beautiful red trail for more than 100 feet. I suppose the only potential mishap that could occur is if a streaking asteroid came hurtling toward the field and you attempted to catch it. That’s worth 8 points, btw.

Remember the Nerf gun you had as a kid? Well it’s time to put on your big boy pants and upgrade your stash of Nerf weaponry with the Nerf Vortex Nitron Blaster. Battery powered to fire discs almost as far Mike Austin rocketed a drive in 1974, the newest Nerf toy gun is perfect for some fun family combat with the kids or for a little friendly office warfare. Priced at $45, the Nitron Blaster also features a 20-disc clip, onboard storage for additional magazines, and an electronic scope with targeting lights. It’s also compatible with Tactical Rail System accessories.
