If anyone tells you that your Dad is too grown up for toys, they’re a liar-liar-pants-on-fire. Dads don’t grow up. They never grow up. Here’s the real truth: Dads LOVE toys. They love them more than their kids do. They buy toys “for the kids” that they really just got for themselves but needed an excuse. They’d play with toys forever if they thought they could get away with bringing them to the office. In fact, they do bring them to the office!
With that in mind, we here at RED5 have done our bit to assemble the perfect collection of father’s day gifts for the fun Dad, the fabulous Dad, the embarrassing Dad, the energetic Dad, the silly, the strange and the downright absurd Dads… so, you know, pretty much all of them.
Basically, it’s like Russian Roulette. Except that instead of a six-shooter with one bullet, it’s a helmet filled with water held in by one of eight plugs that you pull out. So, not really that much like Russian Roulette, but it’s a heck of a lot of fun, and perfect if you’ve ever wanted to douse your Dad.
Twister is one of those games that’s perfect for the young and athletic, but absolutely abysmal if you’re getting older and less flexible. Therefore, it’s perfect for getting your Dad to tie himself in knots in the most exquisitely embarrassing way possible.
Your Dad might not be able to pull off the swanky stylishness of the average magician (let alone the glitz of a glamourous assistant gown), but with the Dynamo Magic Set, you and your Dad can practice the arcane and mystic arts to your heart’s content – just don’t let on how it’s done.
Let battle across the bedroom floor commence! What Dad doesn’t enjoy a good old game of pretend conflict? And now, with the Vex Crossbow, your Dad will be able to build himself a genuine siege engine, perfect for assaults on the kitchen desktop counter and glorious conquest across the carpet!
There’s many a Dad fancies himself an engineering whizz, whether he actually is one or not. To indulge that particular fantasy, we present this 280-piece official replica of the classic 911 engine, which, when assembled, actually runs, allowing your Dad to feel as though he’s achieved something. Bless.
Well, pardner, this here kitchen ain’t big enough for the both of us. I reckon the only way to settle this is with a good ol’ fashioned showdown – a Pie Showdown. Ya’ll are gonna need quick reflexes – fastest on the draw wins. Slowest on the draw gets pie in the face.
What Dad didn’t grow up wishing he could run around with a ray gun and blast things? Now, with the Laser Dart, you can let him live out that childhood fantasy… and then soundly trounce him at it. With easy reloading and nifty infrared tech, this is truly futuristic faux-combat for your poor Dad to fail at.
