Toyologist Toy Review - NERF VORTEX VIGILON

The Nerf Vortex Vigilon was another gun from Toys R Us that 11 year old Sam was keen to get his hands on.

Nerf Vortex Vigilon
Unlike the Nerf Barricade that we reviewed previously this doesn't require batteries. It also doesn't have foam darts and I was a little concerned that the discs would cause damage but when we inspected them I was relieved to see that they were foam around the edges with a soft plastic middle and very lightweight, just like the foam darts of the Barricade.

The loading mechanism is very easy and the disc chamber is released by flicking the switch on the side of the gun and the discs can just be dropped in. To shoot the discs the top of the gun needs to be pulled back before firing each time. The video shows that this can be done quite quickly.


The packaging states that the discs fire long range, we didn't see how far they would go at their furthest as we only tried it indoors but as you can see in the video the Christmas tree was blasted with quite a force.

Refill discs can be bought separately currently for £3.99

Available online from Toys R Us currently reduced to £12.99

Age suitability: 8 yrs +
