You read that right – Battle Tag is now Available exclusively at Zellers and personally I think it looks like alot of fun for kids of all ages. It takes whatever environment you’re in and turns it into a 300m playground complete with weapons, battle tag vest and ammo packs. I think this is a pretty hot item for the young gamer – it gets them off the couch and actively doing something outside in the summer of even a great rainy day toy. Regardless of how you use it, this is a pretty sweet looking product. More details below
