Koosh Solar Recon
Just the name alone indicated to testers that this was not going to be your everyday toy shooter. The Koosh Solar Recon looks and feels like a high tech, space aged device and the experience exceeded expectations. Koosh balls slide into a tube at the top and then get “charged” with light so that they glow in the dark! As you might imagine this threw the toy into the “totally cool” category pretty quickly. Parents loved that the Koosh balls were super soft and could not hurt even though they shoot out pretty fast and make a dazzling streaking effect in the dark. They also liked that the glowing balls were really easy to find. A final feature that must be mentioned, since it too drew plenty of oohs and ahhs, are the sound effects that accompany the action. Note to parents: that feature can be turned on or off.
