Zing ZX Cross Bow Review

The Zing ZX ZX Cross Bow is designed for both indoor and outdoor play, but with summer upon us it seems like the outdoors will win out. Made for use with soft, foam Zartz in place of darts it’s a safe alternative to archery or sling shots (with caution of course).  Your child will be amazed at how far they can shoot.

I’ve never bought any toys that can be used for violence, but I didn’t have a problem with the Zing ZX ZX Cross Bow. My daughter took archery in school and has been interested in it ever since. With the Summer Olympics starting soon, she’s been seeing more of this sport on TV as well. Instead of using the Cross Bow to shoot at others, she uses it to hit targets.

She is limited in all types of physical activity, but she is able to use the Cross Bow and perfect her aim. “The Power Swing technology enables the bow arms to pop open for action” and the Zartz can reach distances of over 45 feet. She uses the clips to keep two extra Zartz ready for the next launch. I’ve cautioned her not to aim at others, including animals.

The only issue she’s had with the Cross Bow is that the Zartz have to hit a flat surface in order to stick. Most of the time, the Zartz just hit and pop off.

You can find the Zing ZX ZX Cross Bow at Target, Wal-Mart, Toys ‘R’ Us and at Amazon.com. The ARV is $19.99 and is for children 8 and older.
