Nerf Turns 40

Various blogs on my RSS feed, such as Hack a Day, have brought it to my attention that today marks the 40th anniversary of Nerf–yes, Nerf as in squishy foam footballs, etc. When I was much younger I had a purple Nerf football and a Nerf basketball hoop on my bedroom door. My sister had a set of Nerf rockets with launcher, which I believe must have been the first Nerf projectile product. Apparently ballistic Nerf things are the mainstay of their business these days. Clearly I need to visit toy stores more often.

This means that Nerf and the Internet are almost exactly the same age.
