I have to admit I was pretty excited to be able to try the Firetek Crossbow by Zing. Probably more excited than the kids. Of course as soon as I started to open it, my husband was right there and had to try it first. My favorite feature on this, it lights up, not only the crossbow itself but the arrows, so it would be a great outside toy. The arrow stay lit even after you shoot them, so would be easy to find and hard to loose. It has some great safety buttons so the younger crowd would have a hard time shooting it. It also pulls hard so would take some serious strength,, so again making it difficult if a younger sibling were to try it. It also has an extra button release to make it more complicated if younger hands try to attempt it. I would agree with the age suggestion on this one and that’s 8 and up… It’s a pretty powerful toy, but so much fun!
