Nerf Rebelle

From MyLastDart by way of SGNerf

Pretty Much a Direct Quote from SGNerf's page. My thoughts below. MyLastDart had a chance to catch a glimpse at the upcoming new range of Nerf Rebelle products designed specifically for the female demographics. This is a very interesting and positive development in the Nerf series that will expand the appeal of Nerf to a much wider market.

Ok, now for my thoughts. I can see where they're coming from on this, and i'm not sure whether or not i agree. Not because i'm sexist, quite the opposite. INMHO, or maybe not so humble, I thin any girls, or women for that matter, who were/are going to be drawn to NERF as a hobby won't be put off by the relatively gender neutrality of the current styling. I don't think these are going to be the hotcakes they are hoping they will. And I say that because in my family, hunting is a way of life, and the women hunt just as avidly as the men, and they DON"T get Pink furniture for their guns. The younger set are the same way. Just my opinion.

On the OTHER hand, however, i can still see a place for these. Check out the organic, flowing design they have. Look past the paint job. don't they look like "elven" or "alien" weapons? Possibly "bio-tech"? 

Oh, on a side note, the 6 shot pistol that comes with the eye wear also comes with a holster... How come they get a holster and we don't?
