Badge-Nerf

Nerf Sports is a series of Nerf products focused on sport play that began in 1972.

Details

While not as popular as Nerf blasters, Nerf Sports consists of balls and equipment for people to play sports with. Common products released under the Nerf Sports series are footballs and basketball hoops. Many Nerf Sports objects are designed to cope with any amount of rainfall there may be, making them popular among people who play street sports.

History

The series dates back to the early years of the Nerf brand itself, with many iconic sports products beginning production from the 80s, with various play sets including Indoor Golf, Table Hockey, and Fencing. The majority of the early Nerf toys were Nerf Sports products (or retroactively added into the Nerf Sports line), among them being the Football (1972) and the Nerfoop (1972).

A number of products released under the Koosh Vortex series were re-released under the Nerf brand with no changes to name, with Vortex as a sub-series to Nerf Sports.

The line spawned several sub-series, among them being Nick & Nerf (1995 to 1996), Head 2 Head (1996 to 1997), and most recently, Firevision Sports and Dude Perfect. The line went on a brief hiatus in 2004, when all Nerf Sports products were rebranded under the Pro Shop or Street Zone lines depending on the product. Later Nerf Sports products were not under these series.
