A must-have for the would-be Robin Hood

Crossbow for the Wii even has a laser sight.


It's not a Nerf blaster by a long shot, but this crossbow might provide a slightly more realistic experience than the Zapper if you're really into that sort of thing.

In this toy weapon's quiver is an arrow with a plastic ball on the end instead of an actual tip, which may disappoint the most avid fans of the free Wii game Link's Crossbow Training, though its laser sight should please the more maniacal among them. Not to mention that its $28 is more expensive than the Zapper, which comes bundled with the crossbow game, according Technabob. But maybe if they're lucky, the next version will come out with night-vision goggles .
