This guide will offer you the best of the best, the cream of the crop, so you know what to buy for what you need - no matter what it is.

This week it’s all about bringing you the best toys to keep the little ones entertained. So from Lego sets that keep their hands and minds entertained for hours to Nerf guns that let dad join in the fun - this list has it all.

Best Nerf guns

If you're looking for the answer to the question "what's the best Nerf gun or blaster" then you've come to the right place. 

That's because we'll tell you right now that the best Nerf gun is the Nerf Rival Nemesis MXII-10K Blaster

It is awesome - a fully motorised action, 100-round high capacity hopper, 100 fps muzzle velocity and a generous 100 rounds to fire make the Nemesis a foam flinging brute. 

But if it's not the one for you, then check out our guide to the best Nerf gun or blaster below. These blasters are as fun as their names imply and have helped Hasbro sell enough darts over the last five years to circle the globe five times.

If you were anything like us, a lot of childhood days were spent sat in the lounge, with a massive box of Lego spread across the floor. Many an hour would fly by while we tried to successfully construct a replica of the X-Wing from Star Wars.

Luckily, as the years have flown by, Lego's tech has increased and now there are some stunning models you can build.
