The Foam Machete, formerly the Zombie Machete, is a Nerf-branded Perpetual Play Group foam weapon that was released in 2013 under the Zombie Strike series.

Like much of the Zombie Strike series, it was originally a Target exclusive in the United States.


The Foam Machete is a foam weapon designed to resemble a machete. It has a wrappings design on the handle, which are made of the same type of foam as the rest of the weapon. The Zombie Strike logo is featured in the higher middle of the blade.


The Foam Machete was first revealed at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. It then began appearing in stores in August 2013.[1]

After the product's name was changed, Perpetual Play Group stopped producing the product, and instead Jazwares started producing it.


  • The Foam Machete can be used as a throwing knife, which could be a handy alternative to Z-Bombz. However, the Machete is made of much harder foam than Z-Bombz are, and thus it may be a little more dangerous to use as a ranged weapon.
