NERF’s new mascot Murph
The launch of NERF’s new gel blaster comes a month after the blaster brand introduced its new mascot, Murph. An anthropomorphic character who uses the non-binary pronouns “they” and “them,” Murph is made of NERF darts from head to toe, Murph is the brand’s first-ever mascot and is described as “the most fun, playful, and social member of the NERF team.”
According to a press release announcing the mascot’s debut, Murph is the personification of the playful spirit. They are a natural athlete, great at NERFoop, and an expert at surprise NERF Super Soaker ambushes. They can also toss a Nerf Vortex Football like no other and are a fantastic trick shooter with any Nerf blaster.
Created in a partnership with the ad agency The Martin Agency, Murph is the center of the brand’s new multi-year marketing campaign Unleash the Play in You, which encourages families to step away from their screens and get up and active with Nerf to create memories that will last a lifetime.
