Nerf is a line of foam-based products and toys that are invented and marketed by the toy giant Hasbro. As one of the most successful projectile-based toy brands ever produced, Nerf has made its way to Philippines, into our homes, and into our hearts. Although their foam blasters resemble realistic guns and have similar mechanisms in their functions, Hasbro refuses to refer to them as toy guns for safety and legal reasons – opting instead with the term Nerf Blasters.
Nerf began with very simple looking foam blasters and as the years went by, the designs and engineering developed further, looking more advanced with each lineup. Improved foam dart-shooting capabilities took these blasters to the next level. Today they cover a wide range of products including foam swords and shields, and foam balls.
Start With Nerf Blasters
Nerf blasters are simple toy guns which fire foam darts, discs or foam balls. They are officially named and described as Nerf blasters, but most people just refer to it as a Nerf gun. All Nerf guns are packaged with its foam ammunition (either darts, discs, or balls). Hasbro has designed several different types of darts with unique features as well, such as the whistling dart or the suction dart for smooth surfaces.
There are a few different sublines for Nerf blasters as well: The Nerf N-Strike, Nerf N-Strike Elite, Nerf Vortex, Dart Tag, Zombie Strike, Rebelle (aimed towards girls), and Doomlands.
Each Nerf blaster is designed to have specific features such as modular designs that can interchange parts from other blasters or upgrades from a blaster that uses double drum-type magazines as foam darts. Different shooting methods such as manual loading of individual darts or an automated flywheel allow for maximum creativity in every Nerf battle.
