Zano Bow

When big power comes in a small package, what's not to like? The Zano Bow is about one third the size of the original Z-Curve Bow, but yields all the high flying power. Whether shot into the clouds or aimed at a target, the Zano Bow can launch arrows up to 30 feet. Watch out kids because the adults might take over the archery fun. The Zano Bow retails for $9.99.

AFO

The classic boomerang has a modern twist with AFO. Enhanced with LED lights and a return to sender action, the AFO creates a light show in the sky. Soaring through the sky or climbing amongst the trees, this flying flash won't get lost. Launched from the pistol dock, kids simply pull the chord to send it into fight. The most fun comes from flying the AFO because the LED lights illuminate the sky. AFO will retail for $15 on Amazon.com and will be available at Walmart in August.

Hog Wild Atomic Shield Popper

The Hog Wild Atomic Shield Popper is the ultimate attack and defend outdoor toy. The foam ball blaster has a gravity fed auto load feature. It comes with six soft foam balls. Shooting up to 40 feet, these foam balls can keep the enemy at bay. The built in shield helps to deflect enemy attacks while launching balls at the enemy. It retails for $19.99. With this toy, no one will dare break the backyard.
