Toy Fair 2013: Curious About Zing Toys

The new design looks even more fun and accessible.

WHAT: Zing Toys
Curious About: How do you improve the perfect toy?  Zing has found a way.  The Z-Curve Bow was a huge fave of Toys are Tools readers in 2012 but there are new bows and arrows in new colors and designs that I love. 

I love the hot pink that is obviously intended for girls.  I don't know why but opting for the sassier, bolder pink seems.... more respectful?  I don't know how to describe it but this is the first time I'm going to say that I like that something boyish successfully underwent "girl-i-fication."

Love this new green.  More importantly, if you are familiar with the Z-Curve then you'll see the difference right away.  These seem less bulky.

This crossbow is different.  Easier to load but has a mechanism to project even further.

While I'm not crazy about the deer target (I'm a little sensitive that way....) I do LOVE the cans and the bullseye!  Terrific!

Can't live without the refills.

Of course there is a zombie style too.

This is the Zing booth (one of them! They had so much stuff to show!)  How cool is this?  Stand behind the glass and try to watch the arrow hit the transparent wall inside.

Sorry So Sloppy Note: To bring you as many images as possible, I've decided to skip writing estimated availability dates and prices.  I'd feel awful if I made a mistake.  If you are curious about something, send me a message or leave a comment here.  Also, look through the company website as well since some products are already available.  Sorry So Sloppy. Hope you understand!

  1. I'm torn on toys like this, though we did finally cave for Nerf guns this summer. I really don't like the line pictured that is all in camo and sold as "hunter" toys... at least with the bright colours and more cartoonish designs, I can pretend they aren't weapons.
