More Great Gift Ideas (and some are Assorted!)


inflatable snake swords_The Toy Zone 090709

Wow. I’ve been looking for a dozen assorted Inflatable Snake Swords for years, if only to have a crazy sword fight. If you swing one ISS and miss, the snakehead homes in on and bites your enemy right in the crackerbockles before deflating. Ouch. Crazy.

Light-Up Expando Swords

On the other hand, these Light-Up Expando Swords come with a built-in choking hazard. Swing one at your enemy and it breaks up into little weaponettes that fly screaming right down his/her/its throat. These weapons of mass illumination go for $14.99/dozen, so maybe they’re better for self defense after all, but they’re definitely not assorted.

Foam Swords

Foam Swords + Duct Tape are an entirely different class of weaponry, to be covered in a future post. Meanwhile, don’t mess with ANYONE who displays little cows with crescent moons on his/her foam sword sheath. These people are dangerous, and THEY play for keeps.

    Choking with laughter (odd I know, but just what I needed): we HAVE those expando swords here still somewhere. Hey! They work. I’m choking. And the first thing I thought about green woman was…cows jumping over the moon? Are we getting our fantasy worlds a little confused maybe?

    thelit– I want to know if the snake swords have little inflatable fangs with inflatable venom.

  3. The Necromancer Says:

    The wavy swords at top are trippy. I want one!

  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Necro– I want two. One for a spare. Talkin’ arms race here.

  5. The Necromancer Says:

    BS: I’m a pacifist, but what the hell, I’ll take half a dozen. 😉

  6. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Necro– Regarding Pacifism: If you were found unarmed, and that Green Warrior attacked you, you’d risk death by 1,000 foam rubber sword marks. On the other hand, if you had an Inflatable Snake Sword, or even a Light-Up Expando Sword, she’d likely back down and let you have your way with her. Your choice; be safe or sorry.
