Fisher-Price Turbo Fill Blasters: Water Play Is a Blast!

07/15/2009 at 10:00 AM ET

I’m not big on gun play, but I do know how much my 3 ½-year-old son, Finn loves to get soaking wet. Fisher-Price’s Turbo Fill Blasters ($35 for one gun, $50 for two) comes with a refill station that hooks to the garden hose.

Simply click the handle of the spray gun into the base and it refills in just a few seconds. Pull the trigger (there’s no pumping) and it sprays 30 feet for about 15 seconds before it’s empty.

It doesn’t spray so hard that it hurts when it hits you, and it is so easy to operate that Finn can spray it and refill it with no help. They are expensive but they really work well.

My only tip… get the one with two guns or you have no way to retaliate!

hey you might wanna check the quality level of toys you are recommending. this thing gets only one star ON FISHER PRICE’s website! have you used this thing before? ours lasted less than a week before the base stopped filling the guns completely. a quick look at other reviews shows this is not an isolated problem.

great idea, horrible execution, NOT worth 50 bucks or more for some cheap chinese manufacturing.

Total waste of money. This toy is a good idea, but like so many good ideas that get sold before the engineering is complete. Ours stopped after a few uses. Boo Fisher Price.
