Lately, my office mates are going back to their childhood and getting hooked up with toy guns. They are my buddies so I get a chance to play their toys. This toy that I am talking about is not the ordinary ones that imitates the sound of lazer gun, gun shots, grenade launcher etc.
Have you ever heard of Nerf? Nerf (trademarked in capitals as NERF) stands for “Non-Expanding Recreational Foam” is a toy brand created by Parker Brothers and currently owned by Hasbro. Most of their toys are a variety of foam-based weaponry, but there are also several different types of Nerf toys, such as balls for sports like football, basketball, and others.
According to Wikipedia, the most notable toy are the dart guns (referred to by Hasbro as “blasters”) that shoot ammunition made from Nerf foam. Nerf Blasters are toy guns used to shoot foam darts, (consisting of streamline, dart tag, whistler, and suction) balls, or arrows. Various forms of dart ammunition are available, including a variety tipped with Velcro that can stick to Nerf vests, another tipped with suction cups designed to stick to smooth surfaces, a streamline dart designed to fit in magazines, a sonic dart that emits a whistling sound when shot and color variations of the darts including camouflage and glow in the dark.
Okay, now that you now that Nerf is the toy that I am trying to tell here, I recommend that you get one haha. As of this writing I don’t have one yet but sooner or later I will have one haha. Me and my kids can play it too because this toy is design to minimize the impact of getting hit hard and serious physical injury. In line with this, watch and witness the biggest and greatest office confrontation ever! This video created by runawaybox.com entitled “The Great Office War” that got 7,193,278 hits already and still counting.
