How to Find the Best Nerf Guns for Girls That Aren’t Lame

Don’t Let a Pink and Purple Nerf Gun for Girls Fool You, These Blasters Will Send the Boys Running

Who says that girls only want to play with baby dolls that tinkle, or plastic pregnant dogs that pump out puppies like candy? (Gross) Sure, some do, but there are plenty of girls who’d rather shoot Nerf darts into their annoying brothers!

Nerf guns are a must-have for any kid’s collection. Girl Nerf guns, boy Nerf guns–it doesn’t matter. They all promote active play, teamwork, and hand-eye coordination. Netflix can’t do that. Not yet anyway.

Right up there with colorful building bricks, toy cars, and action figures, pretty much every kid would love to get a cool foam dart blaster for Christmas or their birthday. That includes girls too!

What was that? You didn’t know that Hasbro makes Nerf guns for girls too? Sure, they’re hard to find at the stores, but you can find them online, and this article will help you choose the best one for you or your daughter, niece, or granddaughter.

In this post, I want to share with you what I think are this season’s best Nerf blasters designed for girls.

I have two daughters who love spending time with me. Recently, I introduced them to the joys of firing Nerf darts, and now they’re hooked. That’s all they want to do! Drawing? Nope. Playing video games? No thanks. Eat lunch? Not hungry! “Can we please just have target practice?”

As a parent, I love bonding like this. What’s better than lining up a row of plastic cups or dolls across the back of the couch, running over to the other side of the room, taking aim, and knocking that plastic smile off Barbie’s face with fast-moving darts?

Nothing. That’s what.

My daughters love spending time shooting targets across the living room with me! Turns out, girls love Nerf guns just as much, if not more, than boys do!

There was one problem though. I got tired of having to share my blasters with them. (I mean…I bought them for me.)

They needed their own Nerf guns, designed just for them. The kind that fires foam darts that contain secret messages.

Hasbro realized this back in 2010, so they did a ton of research, and launched their “Rebelle” line of foam dart blasters targeted to girls in 2013.

These blasters and bows are adorned with shades of pink and purple (of course…sigh), decorated messenger darts, and names like “Heartbreaker” and “Sweet Destiny”, but they still pack a punch! The Nerf Rebelle line has clearly proven a success, since Hasbro keeps making them, and parents love to buy them!

Look At How These Nerf Guns for Girls Stack Up


As you can clearly see, these “girly” Nerf guns are designed for one thing—to scare off brothers who want to steal their sisters’ blaster! And, to fire decorative Nerf darts fast and far! (OK, two things.) They’re covered in what some might call “girly” bright colors, but you better believe they still perform just like the blasters for boys!

I admit losing a Nerf war to my daughters. (I was outnumbered! And the sun was in my eyes!) Once they got the hang of these easy to use blasters, like the Rebelle Combow and the Allegiant Blaster, there was no stopping them! Not even the neighborhood boys could help me out. They were too busy laughing at my pathetic attempts to dodge pink darts. Pro tip: One of the many benefits to playing with pink and purple blasters is that you won’t have to worry about the guys stealing your darts—most are allergic to anything pink! Thanks boys.

Keep reading to see for yourself the variety of blasters and crossbows that your daughter, granddaughter, or girlfriend would love to get this Holiday season.

My Top Pick

Nerf Rebelle Combow

Don’t forget…

Extra darts!

Nerf Rebelle Secrets and Spies Dart Refill Pack

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun…Blasting Things

No matter how many outfits or accessories she has for her dolls, I’d bet your daughter wishes she could shoot a Nerf gun with you or her brother. (And sometimes, at her brother.) Fortunately, there are some great options from Nerf’s Rebelle series. These Nerf guns for girls are legit! Moms, you might as well pick one up for yourself.

The great thing about Nerf blasters is that there’s one (or twelve) for everyone. Nobody has to be left out–the whole family can join in the chaotic fun!

Let’s be honest. There’s no such thing as “girl Nerf gun” or a “boy Nerf gun” – they’re just blasters!

As the old saying goes, “Girl or boy, woman or man, the fun never stops when a blaster’s in your hand!”

(Full disclosure: That saying isn’t very old.)
