The Spy Gear range is perfect for budding young spies, secret agents and even ninjas. We received the new Spy Gear Wrist Blaster and the Spy Gear Transforming Ninja Sword from Spinmaster and put them to the test. Take a look at our unboxing video for a first look at the latest addition to the Spy Gear range…
The sword is concealed inside the torch handle and it flips open when you slide a trigger button. The impressive extended blade folds back into the torch and can be activated again and again. You have to be careful how you hold the handle of the sword, so that you allow room for it to flip out of the handle easily. It doesn’t take long to get the hang of it.
In this case it really is worth reading the instructions that come in the box as it explains how to fold the sword back into it’s secret chamber. If you try to work it out yourself you might find that the mechanism seems stiff and clunky but if you press the button in the centre of the blade to fold it in half and then slide the trigger to fold it back into the handle the process is smooth.
The blade on the sword is long and made of a sturdy but flexible rubber. The Wild One absolutely loves it.
The Spy Gear Wrist Blaster attaches to your wrist with adjustable velcro straps (so even adults can have a go if they would like to). The Wrist Blaster comes with 3 darts which have sticky pads at the end, so they can attach to your target. The darts fire easily and shoot out of the wrist blaster with speed!
There are two holsters on the wrist blaster to hold spare darts. When the Wrist Blaster is on your wrist it is quite fairly bulky. It doesn’t really fit into a standard t-shirt sleeve so it isn’t possible to conceal the wrist blaster easily, unless you have a baggy jumper or a big coat on. This doesn’t seem to worry The Wild One but it is worth mentioning in case you are looking for something more stealthy.
To fire a dart, first load a dart into the blast chamber. Then, pull back on the slider until it clicks and push it forward to activate. Once the blaster is activated you can gently squeeze the trigger to fire the dart.
The wrist blaster is a fantastic addition to any spy’s kit. I expect that we will need to get some extra darts fairly soon as the tacky sticky pads are already becoming less effective but that’s because this wrist blaster has been played with over and over again since it came out of the box. We’ll be checking out the rest of the Spy Gear range as the Transforming Ninja Sword and Wrist Blaster have gone down so well here!
