NERF

Brand

NERF, the company that pioneered safe, relatively destruction-free indoor play, has been around since 1969, beginning as a Parker Brothers brand.

The idea of tossing a baseball or volleyball inside the house has always had great appeal to kids, without regard to the likely damage that would result in such horseplay. With that in mind, Parker Brothers set out to create a range of “safe” indoor sporting equipment. The result was the NERF line of soft foam toys. Lightweight sponge balls that could be tossed with authority but with very little force behind them, were a hit with kids and parents alike starting in 1969. Today, NERF is a division of Hasbro.
