Toy Fair: Duck Hunter, infrared duck shooting without all the blood (or ducks)

My favorite traditional toy this show has to be the Duck Hunter from Interactive Toy Concepts. It's a combination of a battery-powered flapping bird (similar to the wind-up ones that you may have played with as a child) plus an infrared light gun. A sensor on the bird registers the hit from the gun - on the first and second hits causing the flapping to pause just a little and on the third shot dropping completely out of the air. The first version, coming out within the next month or two, includes a gun and either one or two birds. Another model expected out shortly is going to allow for a two-player mode, with one player controlling the bird and the other trying to shoot it out of the sky. Retail price is $30 and $40 for the one and two-bird sets respectively. I recommend the two bird set for the best possible way to train your kids to bring home fresh squab for dinner. – Nate Heasley
