Return of “Hydro Power”

As some have already seen, the review of the Water Warriors Waterlord is now posted on The Waterlord is the first rubber diaphragm-based water blaster to be produced by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. since the injunction imposed on them back in 2010. For various reasons, the Waterlord appears as if it will be only available at Walmart Canada in 2015, but with luck, it will appear on shelves in the US for 2016.

Disaster is too Appropriate

The only thing that the Flood Force Hurricane and Flood Force Tsunami are accurately about in their names is that they are both disasters, albeit unnatural ones.

For 2015, Nerf Super Soaker appears focused solely on style and pump-action-type water blasters. The Flood Force brand, made by SwimWays Corp., offers some fairly decent-sized water guns that actually use air pressure to create their streams!

Buzz Bee Toys Inc. Website updated for 2015

Buzz Bee Toys Inc.

While it happened about a week ago, for those who haven’t seen it yet, Buzz Bee Toys Inc.’s website was updated for Spring, 2015, including pages for their newest Water Warriors water blaster models.

While the site, itself, remains very basic in terms of functionality, I will admit it is at least easier to navigate than the 2014 version of the site that took ~4 or more clicks to actually reach a product page.

That said, while the new Water Warriors items are ok, it would have been nice to see a new truly-pressurized water blaster released. Then again, I probably understand better than most the challenges they’ve faced and some of the reasons behind the lack of a new pressurized water blaster at this point in time, but that is the topic for a future post.
