Every child has at least one time or another played with Nerf ball or a Nerf gun, but does anyone know what NERF actually stands for? Nerf was started by the Parker Brothers in 1969 starting with a 4 inch thick polyurethane ball. The Nerf ball was created as an indoor safe ball. Nerf was started and the company name stands for "Non-Expanding Recreational Foam."Over the span of time Hasbro has since aquired the company and have come out with several other lines of toys including Nerf Guns and Super Soakers. In 2011, the Nerf N-Strike Stampede ECS won "Boy Toy of the Year" as well as the Nerf Super Soaker Shot Blast won "Outdoor Toy of the Year."

These childhood weaponry toys have shaped a lot of young lads childhood.
