Review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles T-Blasts Leonardo Quad Blaster
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back. Or did they ever really go away? Whatever the case, this review is about only the ‘Leonardo’ Blaster which is one of a whole collection of guns that shoot darts under the TMNT brand. so if you child is a fan of one of the other turtles then you can always check out the rest of the group.
The Leonardo Blaster shoots foam plastic darts that are a lot like the ones in the Nerf gun series but with a unique ‘Turtle’ image on it. They come with four turtle darts that shoot up to forty feet. You can purchase extra foam darts of course.
This particular Quad Blaster goes for a price of around $20-$25 for . There are different blasters in the range that will vary in cost. The collectable extra ammunition packs are priced at around $13 for 10 shells.
Any child who is a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle – and even some adults – will be happy to have one of these blasters as a gift. Particularly fans of the Leonardo character.
The makers say three to fifteen years is the recommended age range. We would opine that teenage children might find the gun a little young for them unless they are large Ninja Turtle fans and want it as a collector’s item.
Thumbs Up Points
For anybody who is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, these blasters certainly look great. This is a fun toy that ties in nicely with the New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. We did enjoy the small turtle faces on the front of each dart!
Thumbs Down Points
Despite the fact that the gun comes with a trigger this actually doesn’t fire the gun. Instead it simply rotates the barrel. There is a loop at the back that you pull back and release to shoot the foam dart. This causes it to be less accurate, but maybe more practice is needed to get accustomed to it.

Value in a Nutshell
For a toy like this $20 is a fair price, and if your kid is a big Turtles fan then yes. If they aren’t but you think they will like different design blaster guns then check out some other brands such as Nerf. The foam darts should be ok for indoor and outdoor play so is great for the summer or winter months, so children are likely going to get lots of usage out of it.
This blaster is really meant for Ninja Turtles fans and if your child enjoyed the film he or she is likely to like this as a gift. If they aren’t really into TMNT but you like the notion of getting them a foam dart gun, there is a good variety on the market with the biggest seller and most popular being Nerf guns.
