Nerf Cyber Hoop Review and Giveaway (ended)

This giveaway has ended, but there are still lots of giveaways and sweepstakes posted under my Giveaways tab!

Calling all Doctor Who fans!

 

Over the summer, I participated in a NERF Cyber Hoop campaign through BzzAgent.com. We received a free Cyber Hoop to try out and share our opinion about. My boys loved it, and I bought a second Cyber Hoop so we could leave one at older-child height and rig up the second one at a lower height for my 8-year-old, since he loves playing with the iPhone and the Cyber Hoop, but wanted to be able to dunk like his brothers.

And then the iPhone broke – it got dropped and despite the protective case on it, the screen shattered. Worse, I found that we didn’t have a warranty on it like I thought we did. So I dug out my older Motorola phone as a backup for the kids to use, and now we are iDevice-less. No iPhone, no iPad, nothing that’s compatible with the Cyber Hoop, since there’s not an Android app for it.

So I’m offering to you, my readers, a brand-new, unopened Nerf CyberHoop. This includes the hoop with wireless connectivity and score-tracking paddle, ball, mobile device stand and instructions.

My boys had a lot of fun with this before the sad and violent death of the iPhone. We hung it over a door in the living room and my two older boys competed in virtual dunk contests. Each time one of the kids made a basket, the hoop would make cheering sounds for them. The app recorded their games and dunks and tracked their stats (you do have to go tell the iPhone who scored each time someone makes a basket, though). Of course they loved competing for high scores and the best stats because they’re competitive like that.

The highlight reel was a particular favorite of my 13-year-old – he would record himself doing goofy solo slam dunks (note: this toy is not designed for serious slam dunking), and then got a huge kick out of watching the playback. This is a large part of why I bought a second hoop – my 8-year-old loves recording videos (just in general – he’ll record himself drawing pictures and then watch the playback), but is too small to mimic his brother’s moves to record his own videos. My plan was to attach the 2nd hoop right to the wall at 8-year-old-height so he could slam dunk too. Oh well; he’s pretty happy recording whatever else catches his interest, especially since his brothers aren’t recording slam dunk videos anymore either.

NERF Cyber Hoop

There are five ways to play for up to four players; one of the features we didn’t get a chance to use was the option to compete with friends who aren’t in the same room in real time.

The Nerf Cyber Hoop, which is recommended for ages 8 and up, connects wirelessly to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (iPhone 4/4S/5, iPod touch 4th or 5th generation, or iPad 2/3/4). It also requires 3 AAA batteries – obviously, neither the batteries nor the iDevice are included. You’ll need to download the free NERF Cyber Hoop app from the App Store; in-app purchases are available but are not required. The app itself does not require an internet connection after it’s installed, but you won’t be able to use all of the features if you’re not connected.

The Nerf Cyber Hoop normally sells for $19.99 but is currently 25% off on Amazon, so you can get it for just $14.99 if you’d like to purchase one for yourself.
