    Hi all,

    This thread probably won't interest many people, but I don't really care. In the last few months, I'm noticing more and more (Dad's) on here, that have young children (predominantly girls for some reason!!).

    So I thought, what the heck. Why not share your photo's/stories of the kiddies helping out/playing with Nerf, and any blaster's they may have.

    This is my daughter Alexya - she was 18 months old when this was taken:

    Parents and their Nerf Kids Alexya10

    Bub's been reloading and retrieving darts for me since 13 months old, and loves Nerf. Obviously, I only use stock darts and blaster's with her around.

    She has now progressed to dart-smithing. Whilst trying to make sili-tipped darts the other night, she insisted on helping/hindering me by passing the sili-tips when it was time to glue them on.

    Alexya is 20 months old now, and I'm in the process of painting a reflex for her - from little things, big things grow!!

    Cheers,

    That is really cute. One day she's going to be a world class modder (like Uin13 or Coop772) and she'll be asking you to go to go to other countries for nerf wars.
    Haha.

    She's so cute. I have a little cousin that loves nerf. Whenever he comes over he's like "Mata gunn, we play gun". Not sure I'm giving him the right message but he sure enjoys himself.

    I have a video of him chasing his sister with a magstrike, just need to find it.

    This one's more from the child's point of view, this child being me.

    My mom disapproves of my Nerf hobby, but my dad's cool with it. While I'm modding in my room, next door he's playing with the Move and the PS3, so I'm not the only child around with big toys.

    One time he borrowed my Raider and used my mom as a test subject for the slam fire mode

    My little girl xmas day. Since the Barricade I have given her a LSFG pistol with a brass barrel. At just under 3 yo she can fire off the hip and hit me in the back off the head 3 times in a row from across the room.

    @Dietzie - that's awesome mate!! I'm hoping bub will move up to a normal blaster soon. Her hands are still a little small though - but the Reflex should be a perfect fit.

    @ clunk. Watch her when she gets her own. There are quite often epic shootouts and well planed ambushes here

    This is my Daughter Mikayla and her favorate nerf gun is the "Vulcan".
    She loves to hold the trigger down and emty the belt, then shouts "Yeah" while clapping.
    The wife hates me letting her play with my arsonal of guns. She wants her to be a little girl

    @Nemesis - that's a gorgeous little girl you've got there!! You can really tell from the pic that Mikayla's having a great time!! I'm quite fortunate that my wife encourages our daughter Alexya to "be a little boy" every now and again.

    As long as the kids are having fun and they're safe, who cares what it is that they're doing.

    Seems to be a common trend of Dad's and their Jnr Nerfer's being little girls!!

    Great to see some quality Father/daughter time - another good reason for spending time/cash on this hobby.

    Thanks Clunk07. I like my father/daughter time aswell. It's better when mum's not around we have more fun.

    I can understand why my wife worries as we had tried for 7 years (4 IVF Cycles) and she came along naturally.

    Here is another one after she has let off a belt.

    Yeh, I think we all enjoy our time with the kiddies when Mum's not around!!

    You've got to stop with the pics mate - she gets cuter with each one!!

    It's definitely one of the most frustrating/heart-breaking things to go through, we went 12 months, and were just considering our options, when a night of drunken debauchery delivered us our little jnr nerfer!! I couldn't imagine what you and your wife would've went through - at least there was a happy ending/beginning to the story.

    Cheers,

    - Clunk.

    Hey Clunk great thread. I think you'll find theres a lot of dads like me who might just enjoy Nerf as much or more than our kids. The hobby/sport has brought me alot closer to my son and we would now spend at lest a couple of hours a week together in the shed. It gives us older dads a real connection and 'quality time' with our kids that we may have missed other wise.

    Yeh, it's definitely good bonding time. Admittedly, I can't wait until bub is a bit older so I can get her in to the workshop. At the moment though, she is a very good dart-collector.

    BTW - hope you haven't got a BTV2 spring in that LS - your young bloke will have arms like Arnie before he's 18!!

    The longshot has just the stock and night finder spring + the usual mods which we've found suit the younger boys but he's been practicing and practicing his V2 RSCB TS which is now his primary. So now he gets 25m flat he wants to play with the big boys. All I can say is look out 4B int the field
