Nerf N-Strike Blasters

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 179

Nerf blasters have been popular since the company first started making the toy guns. There was a time in the 1990's that it seemed like the popularity of Nerf toy guns was going to fade away but some new products and marketing campaigns helped create renewed interest. Today, new products like the Vortex line and the N-Strike line have created a new generation of Nerf fans. There has even been a growth in fans in the 18-29 age demographic with classic Nerf wars popping up on college campuses around the country.

We all know that boys like to play with toy guns. Research has shown that even if you don't expose young boys to television, movies, or toy guns that they will just pretend that something else is a gun. Nerf guns might be the safest of the toy guns available to children today. The foam that is used to make the disks and darts is soft and flexible. The Vortex disks fly a little farther and faster than the darts that the N-Strike line uses. The darts are probably a little better suited for indoor play, however neither will break windows, damage walls, or injure children.

The foam that Nerf uses is actually what the company name stands for. Nerf is an acronym for non-expanding recreational foam. The N-Strike blasters only shoot the darts but there are several different blasters available. The variety of blasters ranges from a single shot pistol to a large automatic gun. The Stampede is the automatic blaster and is an imposing site in a Nerf war. All of the blasters shoot the darts about the same distance and with the same amount of speed. This makes all of them safe for children to be around. Some of the larger ones are difficult for younger children to operate, however.

There are a variety of darts available that will work in the N-Strike guns. There are suction cup darts that will stick to smooth surfaces like windows and walls. These are fun for kids to see where they hit. There are darts that make a whistling sound as they fly. Both, the whistle darts and the suction darts can be bought in glow in the dark material as well as a plain orange or gray. There are Velcro darts available, as well, but these are for a different set of blasters. These are the Dart Tag line and very fun if you enjoy a good Nerf battle.
