If it was a real gun, it would be outlawed. The N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35 Blaster carries 35 darts and is about as formidable as any weapon of its class: pump-action handle, single- and multishot modes, a tactical rail, a drum magazine and an adjustable stock. Cost: $29.99 www.hasbro.com/nerf/n-strike/

Ahoy, mates! Perfect for younger kids and toddlers, the Fisher-Price Ocean Boat comes with a minisubmarine, working propellers, action figures, nautical instruments and even a giant crab that fits in the ship's cargo hold. It's a great way to get future sailors interested in maritime life. The best part? It floats. Cost: $40 www.fisher-price.com (COURTESY OF FISHER-PRICE)

If you're looking to impart some of your esprit de corps to your tykes this holiday season, you don't have to settle for the same old camo-pattern stuff that pops up in stores this time of year.
