my 7 year old son loves this blaster! it's powerful rapid fire feature makes this blaster his new favorite toy. although 20 darts is a good amount to load each time, i do think is should have come with twice that amount to replace lost ones. i am very happy with this product and can't wait to buy my 4 year old a blaster for Christmas.
This is an impressive toy- and was almost as big as my 6 year old son! That was the only problem. He loved the size, and loved the rapid fire of the 20 missiles at once but the gun was way too big for his little frame. He nearly topples over when he lifts it up! Its great that there is a target provided but not so great that the directions say the target could ruin walls...so where do you put it?? The firing of the missiles is super fast so I recommend this for outdoor use only. Overall good product
This BOOMco was not a good idea after all. My son played with it for all of an hour and then it was no longer operable. He is 6 years old and knows how to take care of his things. The plastic on this toy is not durable whatsoever. I like the idea of having a target there with bullets that stick. The bullets have great sticky stuff on it because they have stuck on the target on the wall over night and they're still there.
I really really had fun with this toy. My husband wants one now, I was skeptical about my son having a big play gun but after this ; he will be getting one for Christmas . It would be nice to have a shoulder strap to hold the gun while you reload the darts. Thank you very much for asking me to participate in this testing. I enjoyed my time out from adulthood. Lol.
This product is a very cool toy! Shots off 20 bullets in 2 seconds! Kids and I loved it... a little difficult for my 7 year old to pump at first but he got figured it out after a while. Should have been able to hold all 30 bullets in the chamber or have a case/holder to put the other 10 bullets in. Overall love the toy

Review 7 for BOOMco™ Rapid Madness™ Blaster
Powerful, easy to use, fun
Date:July 14, 2014
Pros: High quality, Durable
My son (11) bought this blaster at Target. He has tons of Nerf stuff and wanted to try this brand. He was super excited opening it. It is pump-action (no batteries) and is powerful and accurate. The darts make a cool sound when they hit the ground, like shell casings. They stick well to the target (provided). Seems like they fly way faster than Nerf darts. Overall he loves playing with it. As far as looks, it would be nice if they made them in jungle or desert camo. He's also into scopes, lights, lasers, so we'll checkout the accessories in the future. One note, the rubber "round" that's provided is just for fun. The blaster only shoots the darts. It's not a "grenade launcher" as it might appear from the box.
