Summer time is a great time to get out and play. Mark Maltese, store manager, Milford Toys R Us Battle Play, stopped by FOX 61 Good day Connecticut with some play time ideas.

  • Battle Play
    • NERF N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 Blaster from Hasbro
      • This flexible, motorized blaster comes with a targeting scope, drop grip and dual-rail barrel, and many removable parts that let kids customize it in more than 30 combinations. After building their own blaster, players can load up their 10-dart banana clip, launch the included darts at targets up to 90 feet away and hit the battlefield in whatever configuration will make them the victor. 4 “AA” batteries required. Ages 8 years and up.
    • NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster from Hasbro
      • When the NERF Rival battle starts, the ultimate accuracy of the Apollo XV-700 blaster will have the edge over any opponent! Featuring spring-action firing, NERF players can fill up this easy-load blaster with the included 7 rounds and reload with the simple press of a button. This high-velocity blaster is available in two colors (blue and red). Ages 14 years and up.
  • Ride in Style
    • Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler Powered Ride On from Fisher-Price
      • Little ones can feel like royalty with this Fisher-Price Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler Ride-On. The Jeep features a realistic Wrangler design and Disney Frozen colors and graphics that provide a fun and stylish look. The pretend radio plays songs from the Frozen soundtrack as your prince or princess drives around. The Wrangler drives on hard surfaces and grass at up to 5 mph forward and 2.5 mph maximum in reverse.
    • Chevy Silverado 12 Volt Battery Powered Ride On from Rollplay
      • Kids will love getting behind the wheel of the Rollplay 12V Chevy Silverado for tons of outdoor fun. Two opening doors and a tailgate make it easy for children to climb in, and clear windshields give them a broad view of the path before them. Working headlights and realistic horn and engine sounds bring the car to life, and little drivers can enjoy some tunes with the built-in MP3 connector and speaker. Whatever the terrain, the car’s rubber traction strips for a steady ride (topping 2.5-5 mph in forward and reverse speeds). Ages 3 to 6 years.
    • smarTrike® Breeze 3 in 1 Trike from SmarTrike
      • This trike with a 3-In-1 design grows with kids from baby to toddler. Parents can first use it like a stroller with a light touch, then as kids grow, they can begin to pedal under supervision. Mom or dad can press the navigator button on the mudguard to switch from a baby tricycle to an independent tricycle, while the safety bar helps keep tots securely in the seat and a full steel frame provides durability. Shock absorbers are built in to deliver a smooth ride, and a covered basket lets little riders bring their favorite toys and snacks along for the journey. Ages 10 months and up.
  • Water Play
    • Zuru Bunch of Balloons by Zuru, Inc.
      • Kids can fill 100 water balloons in less than 60 seconds with this self-tying Kick Starter sensation. Zuru Bunch of Balloons allows kids (and parents) to say goodbye to the stress and mess of filling individual balloons by simply connecting, filling and making enough to start the ultimate water battle in under one minute. Ages 3 and up.
    • Splish Splash Seas Water Table by Step2
      • Little ones can have fun and splash around with this Splish Splash Seas Water Table from Step2. Mini sailors can experience hours of sensory play fun, all under a colorful umbrella to stay cool. This outdoor activity table has plenty of water-ific features and accessories that will encourage active imaginations and enhance fine motor skills, whether sending figures down the slide or off the diving board, spinning the water wheel carousel or using the bucket to fill up the waterfall. Ages 18 months and up.
