History Behind Nerf Design
Posted 15 June 2005 - 02:29 PM
Johnson Research & Development Co., Inc. (http://www.johnsonrd.com/) and here's some interesting tidbits of information that give us a better view of the industry at large.
"The Super Soaker® brand name has captured approximately eighty five percent of the worldwide water gun market. Sales for this remarkable toy reached an impressive $200 million in 1992. "
That's a lot of money.
On the Company Profile page it explains: "After several false starts, the Super Soaker® was licensed in 1989 to Larami Corporation. In 1995, Larami sold Super Soaker® to Hasbro Corporation.... The competitive advantage of this toy has been maintained worldwide by an array of intellectual property rights owned by Lonnie Johnson."
It further states "Johnson Research has another license agreement with Hasbro which covers the design, engineering and development of NERF® soft foam dart guns."
Prettying interesting history.

I am going to post this ONCE more and only ONCE more. You two need to quit posting for a while, and start reading. Notice how the rest of us obey the Code of Conduct? Here's another tip, the Webmaster (cxwq) has kindly made a topic with suggestions for new members. You can find the topic here. You'll discover that being a fine member really isn't that hard of a concept.
You two each have one more post to start cleaning things up or I am giving you the 9999 special. What does that mean you ask? It means you are suspended from Haven for the next 9999 days, which rounds to about 27 years. Once I suspend you, there is no coming back. Believe me when I say pleading doesn't work either. Also believe me when I say it's hysterical when you plead, so don't let me or anyone else prevent you from doing so if and when the opportunity should arise.
If you don't follow my ultimatum I hope to God that I am around. You'll find yourself off this site so fast, you won't know what hit you.
