If you have been following this blog, you’ve probably seen my appreciation for the Nerf brand. But what if I told you that there are other brands of Dart Blasters? Gasp! It’s hard to believe right? That there are other brands other than Hasbro’s Nerf.
There are several companies out there trying to cash in the foam flinging world, some of which are just as successful as Nerf. One of which I will briefly cover in this post.
One company is Buzz Bee’s Air Warriors. Buzz Bee Toys was formed in 2000 as its own toy company, based in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. Buzz Bee Toys markets products for an international audience; some of their toys, such as the Derringer, are only available in certain countries.
The company’s roots date back to when some of the executives at the company were initially working at Larami before it was shut down by Hasbro. After this, the executives went on their own and formed Buzz Bee Toys.
Another company; BOOMco. will be covered in another post. Stay tuned!
