If you are one of the millions of people still shopping for last minute gifts, fear not! Bass Pro Shops has a perfect gift for everyone on your list. And, if all else fail’s, a Bass Pro Shops gift card will do the trick! But hurry, times-a-tickin!
Bass Pro Shops is the place to turn for everything outdoors. Hunting, fishing, camping – you name it, they’ve got it! Or, if you happen to be looking for something a little more indoors, Bass Pro Shops has a wide selection of home decor, accessories and clothing for you to choose from. In fact, I love their clothing selection and Princess P is all about their toys! No really. Half of her Christmas list was picked out from the Bass Pro Shops catalog! (Santa if you are reading, she would really love the Bass Pro Shops Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force Kids’ ATV!)
We were recently sent two of this year’s hottest items from Bass Pro Shops to review – the Fishin’-opoly board game and the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Mega Pack: The Hunt and The Strike Video Games. Both of these items are super fun and are perfect for snow days!
For the Wii, the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Mega Pack contains two great games at one low price! The Hunt video game features the most realistic hunting experience available, bringing you to an amazing variety of huge North American landscapes. This game not only includes both big and small animals, but it also features aggressive predators and customizable weapons. When Chris first tried out this game, I had to laugh at him a bit. Being the hunter that he is, I expected him to start the game and breeze through it. However, he had some difficulties sighting the weapons in and finding the one he liked best. After that, he had no problems and enjoyed it. The Hunt controller is really neat, too!
The Strike: Tournament Edition is the closest you will ever get to tournament fishing without ever leaving the comfort of you own home. Competing against some of the world’s best anglers, The Strike takes you through ten tournaments, situated in North America’s premier fishing lakes. You are able to grab your favorite rod, reel and tackle box and get ready to enter the cutthroat world of competitive tournament fishing! The Strike gives you plenty of options and is tons of fun! Fishing from your couch has never been better!
When I first saw Fishin’-opoly from Bass Pro Shops, I had to laugh out loud! This game is just like the classic, only it has “Cast!” instead of start, “Bass Boat Bonanza” instead of Boardwalk and “Snag!” instead of jail. The playing pieces include a bass boat, old boot, can, fishin’ hat, worm and catfish and the cards are titled, “Fish in a Barrel” and Can O’ Worms”. This game is hilariously cute and tons of fun, especially if you have a fisherman among you! Fishin’-opoly can be played with 2-6 players and you can play the traditional play or 1 hour version (if you don’t want it to last all night). I thought Chris was competitive playing the classic version, but he is even more competitive with Fishin’-opoly from Bass Pro Shops!
If you are still in need of that perfect Christmas gift, check out Bass Pro Shops and their extensive collection of items. Whether you are in the market for a bass boat, kids ATV or a lady’s Columbia jacket, Bass Pro Shops is a great place to turn! Plus, be sure to visit Santa at Bass Pro Shops (through the 24th) to get a free photo with Santa and participate in free arts and crafts!
