Nerf

NERF (Non-Expanding Recreational Foam) is a line of foam toys created by Reyn Guyer. Guyer brought the original foam volleyball to the Parker Brothers in 1969.[31] Parker Brothers eventually sold NERF to the Tonka Corporation, which was shortly thereafter acquired by Hasbro. NERF also launched a line of water guns and foam guns in the late 80s and early 90s including the Super Soaker the Nerf Blaster.[32]




DeviantArt[34] has over 18,000 fan art submissions tagged NERF.[34]



The term "nerf"[36] has grown popular with online gamers as well. The phrase can be used to describe the effect on a weapon due to the developers reducing the amount of damage dealt by the weapon. Gamers will complain that the weapon has been "nerfed"[37] and no longer deals an useful amount of damage.

G.I. Joe

G.I. Joe is a series of action figures developed by Hasbro in the 1960s.[10] The term "G.I. Joe" originally was a WWI reference to the US soldiers, and as such the line originally featured the "Action Marine," the "Action Pilot," the "Action Sailor," and the "Action Soldier."

In 1982, the line was re-imaged to appeal to the international market. The figures were given a backstory through a series of cartoons and comics that helped promote the toy line. This featured an ongoing struggled between the "G.I. Joes" and their evil counterparts "Cobra Command." At the end of each of the 1980s cartoons was usually a PSA featuring one of the Joes featuring the line "Now you know, and knowing is half the battle."



Mr. Potato Head

Mr. Potato Head was Hasbro's first successful toy line. The line consisted of a potato shaped plastic figure that could hold multiple parts in its hollow body. These included arms, legs, eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. The product became an iconic toddler's toy and was featured in the 1995 Pixar film Toy Story movie. DeviantArt currently holds over 2,000 submissions tagged Mr Potato Head.[19]
