Nerf and Nintendo's Safety Dance

Nerf is producing soft, squishy accessories for the Nintendo Wii.

You might already be familiar with the Nerf PS2 controller, a foam-covered wireless game pad that can survive the angry throws of frustrated gamers. Now Nerf is getting into the Wii accessory game, and televisions everywhere might be a little bit safer for it.

Performance Designed Products, the gaming accessory company that developed the Nerf PS2 controller, recently showed off the Nerf Sports Pack for Nintendo Wii at Toy Fair New York 2007. The Nerf Sports Pack includes a Nerf foam sleeve for the Wii remote and three Nerf sports attachments--a foam golf club, baseball bat, and tennis racket. It's very similar to a previous Wii Sports Pack we've seen, only this one is soft, cushiony foam rather than hard, screen-shattering plastic. Just remember that regardless of what they're made of, you shouldn't throw things at your television.

We don't have any pricing for the Nerf Sports Pack yet, but it will probably retail for around $15 to $30 when it hits stores this summer.
