What It Is
The Nerf N-Sports Cyber Hoop Set is a new iOS-ready update of the classic Nerf Hoops game. It's an indoor basketball game, and the basic toy is, in fact, almost exactly the same as the original. It includes a backboard, a hoop, a net with a counter, and a Nerf basketball. Hang it up using the included door hook or Command Strip adhesive and you're ready to play.
Like the original, in stand-alone mode, the hoop will track your score as you're playing. But, the cyber part really adds a new dimension to the game. Download the free Nerf Cyber Hoop app from the app store and load it up. The app connects wirelessly to the hoop and unlocks five different games as well as the opportunity for you to take and share video of your games. We found the app connected immediately, and as we started to play, it kept score and provided the always-important cheering of the crowd and much more. The app saves all your highlights and scores and lets you share them on Facebook or YouTube.
Why It’s Fun
While still maintaining the classic fun of Nerf Hoops, this adds a whole new level of excitement and interaction. And if you already have an iPad or iOS device, this is one of the best integrations we've seen yet that really does enhance the experience while taking nothing away from the basic play.
Who It’s For
Nerf N-Sports Cyber Hoop is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Three AAA batteries are required but not included.
If you're playing solo, you'll want to be sure to set up your device where it can catch all of the action but be out of the way of flying balls and so forth.
