Both you and your 8 year old will easily recognize the names behind these “best” toys. What follows here are the first, second and third top picks from the list:
Nerf Vortex Nitron Blaster:
Nerf is a well seasoned maker of shooters and blasters. At the top of the list in first place is the newest Nerf Vortex Nitron Blaster and it is as high-tech as they have ever offered. Hone in on your target with amazing accuracy with the electronic scope and its pulsing lights. Is the target a long way off? No worry with the acceleration trigger to power up for long distance shots.
With the Nitron Blaster you get an ammunition magazine with 20 Nerf discs. There is extra storage in the Blaster for additional magazines and discs to extend firing power. These may be purchased separately. The soft Nerf discs make this a favorite toy for indoor or outdoor play.
LEGO Ninjago Limited Edition Lightning Dragon:
The LEGO Ninjago Limited Edition Lightning Dragon (2521) as the second favorite pick on the list is a 645 piece LEGO set. It features construction of the Lightning Dragon which spits lethal lightning balls and the exclusive, evil Skull Chopper with snapping jaws and flick missiles. The set also includes 4 mini figures and nine weapons (one of which is the stolen golden nunchucks of lightning). Your 8 year old will have hours of fun constructing the scene and then waging the battle to rescue the hero and the stolen nunchucks of lightning in this favorite LEGO set.
Transformers Dark of the Moon MechTech Ultimate Optimus Prime:
Third on the “best” list is the “ultimate” gift for any Transformers fan. Transformers Dark of the Moon MechTech Ultimate Optimus Prime is as long on cool features as is its name. The classic red and blue truck tractor transforms into Optimus Prime robot. Then the included trailer converts to Omega Combat Armor that fits around Optimus making him an amazing 22 inches high. This battery operated figure not only has glowing weapon lights but also produces battle sounds and gives voice to Optimus. This movie-adapted Transformer toy will amaze and enchant your 8 year old Transformer buff.
