Copter Darts

Spring 2013 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: OgoSport LLC
Price: $35.00

OgoSport's Copter Darts is a safer take on the traditional lawn darts game. Made of a soft and durable material, they are virtually indestructible according to the manufacturer and safe because they do not contain any sharp parts. The set comes with the target, 4 darts and a carrying case to keep all of the parts together.

Our children testers, ages 6 and 8, enjoyed playing with the copter darts in their backyard. They readily took to the challenge of trying to figure out how to adjust the "feathers" to make the darts get closest to the target. That said, though the game is recommended for children three and up, young ones may find it frustrating. This is especially true for those who have not yet mastered the art of throwing and aiming a ball, let alone an oddly shaped dart that needs to be aimed at a target..

With its novel shape and rugged design, this set of Copter Darts will easily encourage children to go outside and play. The included carrying case will keep the darts together, ensuring that none of the pieces are lost. It'll be a good "go-to" activity on nice days when the kids complain that they don't have anything to do. Our reviewer's only wish was that the set had included more darts, so that it would be easier for parents and children to all play together.
