Why you can trust us

More info

TheToyZone is an independent publication with no ties with companies mentioned on the site. We don’t accept free products in exchange for glowing reviews. Instead, we report our own findings to help you make an informed decision.

Are you a fan of the Halo universe? Are you waiting with bated breath for the release of Halo Infinite? Are you prepared to shoot Nerf darts around your home in the name of science? We need YOU!

We’re scouring the world to find new blood to review a selection of products from Nerf’s new Halo range, such as our favorite Nerf Rival Guns, just in time for the hotly anticipated release of Xbox’s powerhouse Halo Infinite

This is your chance to show the world who reigns supreme in foam dart combat with this incredible opportunity to test and review the latest Nerf Blasters, and get paid for it!

The ammunition may be made out of foam, but this is most definitely war.

Lock, load, play. Repeat.

Who are we looking for?

Here at TheToyZone, we take our work very seriously. So when we’re not rolling across the floor firing foam darts at each other, splashing around with water tables, and testing the latest Switch games, we’re continuously searching for the best toys for kids across the world. Not because we have to, but because we love it! This truly is our dream job.

We’re looking for someone with that same passion for toys who will deliver an accurate, impartial, and sincere review that fits our light-hearted demeanor. One which gives our readers all the information on the products whilst not losing the playfulness of the job at hand.

What’s the mission?

We will send you items from Hasbro’s exciting new Nerf Halo range for you to unbox, lock and load as you put these blasters through their paces to see if they would stand up to Master Chief’s standards.

We want you to:

  • Rigorously test these toys (aka play with them)
  • Tell us:
    – What do you love about each blaster?
    – What don’t you like that much about the toys?
    – What is your verdict?
  • Take close-up photos of each of the products
  • Record an unboxing video
  • Record a video of you testing the products out in the field (check out our vid for the MA40 for inspiration)

What you’ll get

Clear out your current armory as the winning applicants will not only receive a brand new Nerf Halo Bulldog SG Blaster, but we’ll also send you the intense looking, 6 dart rotating drum Nerf Halo Mangler, and because a. You’re going to need some protection and b. You’ll need to look badass whilst slaying your enemies, we’re throwing in a Master Chief helmet with reflective visor and sidelights.

Everything you’ll need to look, stalk, and kill like the Master himself.

Oh yeah, did we already mention we’ll pay you $1170 for it?

A thousand dollars to play with Nerf blasters…
