For anyone looking for a bow and arrow with "real bow action" or "arrows that shoot up to 40 feet," keep looking. The Nerf N-Strike Blazin' Bow is supposed to have these features but doesn't even come close to carrying them.
This toy blaster comes in four pieces that when assembled form a plastic bow with a twenty inch wingspan so it feels comfortable to hold. Unfortunately, this is the only good thing about the product. It comes with three giant foam arrows that you can store in holders attached to the bow. To fire, you remove an arrow from its holder and place on the knocking point which keeps the arrow in place. You then pull back the string and let go. This will launch the arrow forward at your target.
However, the arrows that are supposed to shoot up to 40 feet never covered more than six feet of distance. Also they tore apart very easily and were useless after only a few times being gently used. After awhile the bow became uninteresting because of it's minimal capabilities. Out of multiple people that tested it out, only one said that it was remotely fun. Because of these flaws I wouldn't recommend the Nerf Blazin' Bow to anybody.
Overall, it is not enjoyable nor satisfying to play with the bow and it doesn't take long for it to fall apart.
