The Nerf N-Strike Tactical Scope is appropriate for children ages 6 years and older. Age recommendations for Nerf products are found on the packaging of each of the Nerf brand toys.

The Nerf N-Strike Tactical Scope is designed to fit on all N-Strike dart gun products. The dart guns themselves are labeled as being appropriate for children ages 8 years and older. The difference in age suggestions comes from the fact the N-Strike Tactical Scope cannot fire the micro darts. For example, the N-Strike Elite Stryfe Mission rifle can fire the foam darts up to 75 feet at high speeds.
