The first-ever official NERF book, a stunning visual guide to the iconic blasters-from the very first ones ever made to a sneak peek at the blasters of the future! Packed with photos and facts, this comprehensive tour of NERF blasters features a high-energy design, kid-friendly format, and an exclusive set of 6 specially designed (and highly collectible) foam darts incorporated into the cover.

In the tradition of the LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary (more than a million copies sold), this is the definitive guide to the iconic NERF blaster, and a book that all NERF fans will want to own.

A hardcover, full-color collector’s volume, NERF: The Ultimate Blaster Book presents each blaster in a fully illustrated, detailed spread that provides a complete array of technical specifications (range, capacity, propulsion type, etc.), the story behind the blaster, and callouts explaining its special features. Sidebars offer factoids, activities, and more. And with 6 exlusive, collectible darts included in the front cover of every book, this lavishly illustrated book is the ultimate NERF must-have!
