About the Rebelle Secrets & Spies Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster
The Nerf Rebelle Secrets & Spies Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster is new toy in the Rebelle line of Nerf guns aimed at bringing girls into the Nerf wars. This bow can hold 6 arrows at a time in the rotating quiver mechanism.
By pulling the trigger by the grip of the bow, the next arrow in the quiver is dropped into the firing area. From there, you must grab the arrow and notch it on the string, pull back, and fire!
The cool part about this Nerf Bow Blaster is it has realistic bow action. You are truly launching the arrow using the elastic string you notch it to, so skill and coordination comes into play a lot more than other Nerf Blasters. There’s no doubt, given the name, that this bow was heavily inspired by The Hunger Games movies.
The arrows have whistling tips which sound awesome flying through the air. You reload the bow by placing the arrows back into their slots on the quiver, which don’t always grip the arrow shaft as good as it should, so sometimes arrows can fall out if you flail the Bow Blaster around.
The Rebelle Secrets & Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster has a range of up to 90 feet, which is excellent. A lot will depend on your skill with the bow, as you must be able to notch and cleanly release the arrow for maximum distance.
What’s in the Box?
This Nerf Bow includes –
- Secrets & Spies Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster
- 6 Whistling Arrows
There’s minor assembly required, which is just attaching the one of the bow arms to the rest of the body. You can pick up some extra arrows in case any get lost.
Who is this Nerf Gun Good For?
The realistic bow action on this Nerf Blaster makes it an awesome and fun toy for any Nerf lover. Obviously, the color scheme and marketing is hoping girls will be the main users of the Revolution Bow. I wouldn’t be surprised if they came out with a boy-version of this toy with a different color scheme, as I think any kid would have a ton of fun with this.
If you’re competitive about your Nerf battles and care more about getting rapid shots off, you’d probably be better off with a traditional Nerf gun like a Retaliator Blaster. Check out the below video to see these arrows in action!
What People are Saying About the Rebelle Secrets & Spies Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster
Let’s take a look at how people are reviewing this Nerf Bow Blaster –
“The Rebelle is marketed to girls (girls are in the pictures using it, pink is part of the color scheme, although it blends in great with the blue and purple hues), but the boys had so much fun using it that they didn’t care at all that Nerf sets it up as a girl’s toy.“
“The arrow heads are soft and pretty much harmless, but will hit the target with a pretty good thud. They whistle like a firework (but not as loud) as they fly and pretty awesome! The bow is very cool looking.”
“Otherwise, this is a really cool bow. It feels solid, not flimsy. It looks good too. It would make a great gift for a girl who’s into this sort of thing.”
I’d recommend the Nerf Rebelle Secrets & Spies Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster to any child who’s interested in realistic bow action in a Nerf toy. Boys and girls alike will have a blast with this Bow Blaster, and they’ll get to play out their Hunger Games fantasies!
