Besides being a rabid THE LEGEND OF ZELDA fan myself, my oldest son (almost 5) has become entranced by the newest game in the series, BREATH OF THE WILD. We play the game almost daily together and recently defeated the main boss Ganon in what was one of the most exciting moments of my young sons’s life so far.
He has already asked for a Zelda themed 5th birthday party and has asked to be Link for Halloween this year. I couldn’t be happier as a lifelong fan of the game though finding items based on it are not as easy as some of Nintendo’s other properties (cough cough Mario) so I am always on the lookout for new official merchandise.
To that note, I just came across a brand new item the “World of Nintendo” line by Jakks Pacific has released an it is none other than an official THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD travelers bow and arrow set which if your a fan of the game is completely awesome. I am sure this will sell out fast but you can grab it now (as well as lots of other cool Zelda merchandise) at Toys R Us who are actually having an awesome 20% off sale the entire website right now until 7/12. The bow and arrow set retails for $19.99 and you can grab it for $15.99 with the sale going on. I cant wait to show this to my little guy as we continue to build his Halloween costume one awesome piece at a time.
