4 mins read


NERF is holding a special YouTube workshop for parents and children during the October half-term.

If you’re stuck for ideas during the October half-term, then the NERF Upload event might be just the ticket.

It all begins with a free in-person event on October 26, followed by a virtual event on the morning of October 30.

“This month, kids’ action brand NERF is calling on parents to embrace their children’s dreams of becoming YouTube stars with the launch of NERF Upload, a series of physical and virtual events taking place this October half term,” reads the official description.

“Aimed at arming kids with the basic skills needed to become a YouTuber, NERF Upload will seek to showcase the many skills and benefits that come from a career in content creation, while dispelling common misconceptions that parents have towards the ever-popular career aspiration.”

Taking place at Studio Space in Wapping, London, the in-person event will be split between two sessions in the morning and afternoon.

The morning session runs from 9.30am BST until 1pm BST, while the afternoon session takes place from 2pm until 5.30pm.

Suitable for children between the ages of 8 to 12, tickets are available for free on the EventBrite website. Parents will be required to stay for the duration of the event.

The YouTube masterclass will be hosted by popular UK content creators, including Morgz, AJ, and Sharky. Cinemavericks will also be on hand to offer filmmaking advice.

Not only will budding YouTube stars have the chance to learn basic filming and editing skills, but they will also have the opportunity to play with NERF guns and master various trickshots. 

And don’t worry if you can’t make the in-person event, because a free virtual masterclass will be held on the following weekend.

Taking place from 10-11am BST on October 30, the virtual session will give fans the chance to submit questions and learn the art of content creating.

Once again, tickets are free, and can be purchased by visiting the EventBrite website.

Speaking of NERF, applications are still open for fans to test Halo Infinite Blasters ahead of Christmas.

In what might be the best job ever, The Toy Zone is hiring somebody to test the brand new Nerf Halo Bulldog SG Blaster, as well as the Halo Mangler and a Halo Master Chief helmet. 

Best of all, you’ll actually get paid to review the products online, provided you live in the UK or US.

According to The Toy Zone, successful applicants will need to play with each toy and explain what they like and dislike about the products.

You’ll also need to take some close-up photographs of the items, record and unboxing video, and another video in which you test the products in the wild.

If you want the chance to score the job and make some extra cash in time for Christmas, you’ll need to apply on the Toy Zone website by November 12.
