Isn't it funny how your kids get their own little obsessions and go off on their own little tangents? I think it's hilarious! First we were obsessed with Minecraft, but now, my Tater is obsessed with making his own YouTube videos. They usually don't make sense and they aren't funny at all, but we keep making them, day in and day out... His newest thing has been taking videos in the dark, like he is a spy or an "explorer" (He's obsessed with Bear Grylls!). They are pretty funny videos, but he's always asking me how we can make them better. And, folks, I think I have found the answer!
This is the NERF Infared Nightvision Camcorder, and it is awesome! I have to say, it is the PERFECT thing for recording videos in any and all surroundings! My boys love to do "Tour" videos, where they take the viewer on a tour of our house, our yard, the park, the grocery store, anywhere, and this camcorder is the perfect thing! You can take videos using this camcorder in the dark or in the daytime, either one, but I have to say that nighttime is MUCH cooler. It is just like the "army guys do", or so I'm told! ;)
I love, love, LOVE NERF because it's one of the only brands that can stand up to the crap that my boys give their toys! They are SO rough on toys, they break them like nobody's business, so I am always looking for tough brands. NERF does the trick, that is for sure! This particular toy takes AA batteries, four of them. They last a pretty long time, but I would recommend getting rechargables, because that really cuts down on your battery cost, and you don't have to run to the store every time the batteries die LOL!
This is a really cool toy, no matter if your little explorer is big or small! Heck, at our house, even dad had to get in on the action! These are just really cool goggles, and the camcorder part is just what puts it over the top! We are now on a mission to try to go for a walk at night and record something creepy! I am guessing we might see a raccoon or a deer, but the boys are convinced that we are going to catch Bigfoot! Don't worry, if we get anything good, we'll be sure to post the video so that everyone can see!
The NERF Infared Nightvision Camcorder retails for around $89.99 at most retailers, but you can get it right now on Amazon for around $77! That, my friends is a pretty good deal for a toy that is going to make your kiddos as happy as this one is!
