Prices for Nerf guns start at around $5 for a standard Nerf N-Strike Elite Jolt Blaster and max out at around $75 for a Nerf Hyper Mach-100 Fully Motorized Blaster — both models that you can find on the shelves in your local Target.
Just like Simpsons toys, there is a collectors market for Nerf guns, and this sees some models like the Nerf Manta Ray, which cost $20 when it launched in January 1996, resell on websites like eBay for as much as $500.
Of course, not all Nerf guns hold their value. There are some models that simply don’t hold their value, and it’s not uncommon to find these on sale on eBay for less than $5 per piece, so if you’re shopping on a budget head there first.
