The Nerf Elite 2.0 Motoblitz

This toy is for everyone in the family to have some fun, not just the kids, it’s time to get your inner child out.

Toy guns that spill out water or darts may create images of chaos for some parents. The Nerf Elite features two ways to fire darts, giving you flexibility and tactical advantage in Nerf games.

You can unleash six darts at once with air blitz blasting powered by air-pressurised pump-action.

Lazy Makoti’s range

We are certainly cooking up a storm this holiday season and Woolworths has created a range with beloved cooking personality, Mogau Seshoene popularly known as Lazy Makoti. 

For a limited edition the Lazy Makoti Homeware range has harnessed Lazy Makoti’s brand well known for her traditional recipes but with a twist.

However, moving the fuss away from cooking, and making it simple and delicious. 

The homeware is eight collections, they also come with food kits such as easy-to-make ginger scones to ujeque or dombolo (steamed bread). 

“With this collection, I once again open up my heart to let my love for food flow to your kitchen. I hope all the ladies who will be transitioning to becoming umakoti this festive will also feel the love through the range,” she said. 

The Lazy Makoti range is available in Woolworths stores nationwide.
