The pump action super soakers are great for older kids (7 and up), but younger kids often find it difficult and frustrating to do the pumping. As we showed in the video, with the battery operated Nerf Super Soaker Thunderstorm all you do is press the trigger and water shoots out. Hold the trigger and you get a continuous stream of water. So simple, even a Dad can do it. More importantly, younger kids can play with the Thunderstorm and battle their pump action Super Soaker armed older siblings.
The Nerf Super Soaker Thunderstorm is a great option for kids who want in on the Super Soaker fun, but are not looking to build their biceps with the pumping action required on other Super Soakers. The water clip only holds 10 ounces, which means you do have to refill often. On the plus side, you can buy additional water clips and just pop them in when your current clip runs dry.
There is a disturbing trend to add batteries and electronics to games and toys that absolutely do not need them (read our ). At first glance, it seems like adding batteries to a water gun is another one of those bad ideas. However, after using the Nerf Super Soaker Thunderstorm for a while, we can say that the batteries really do serve a real purpose.
The trade off between a powerful water gun and the simplicity of pulling a trigger has finally ended with the Nerf Super Soaker Thunderstorm. The Super Soaker Thunderstorm is battery operated, just pull the trigger and water shoots out 25 feet. I knew it was only a matter of time before batteries saved our poor kids from actually having to pump to get water!
