(Unofficial) 20-Pack Nerf Darts £1 at Poundland

Found 6th Jun 2016
These are actually cheaper than home made "steffans". Bought a pack and they're as rigid and solid as normal Nerf bullets. Well impressed for a pound. Now I'm not so fussed about a rogue dart or two flying behind the telly.

​link or it never happened...please.
Just had a quick eBay browse and I can find 180 for £6.49 delivered. (HK for £5.99). Which is 3.6p per dart.

These (this post) are 5p per dart (180 = £9), however if you look at the actual image of the eBay ones, they are quite clearly ‘Steffans’ i.e. homemade.

They wont be consistent, they wont be machined and im intrigued what the actual heads look like (and their adhesion method) as id imagine this is cheap and cheery glue gun.

Im happy with my Poundland ones – as they are solid, machined and surprisingly well put together. Very close to the real thing.

Id happily go for the eBay versions if it was for Nerf Wars, where you’re kind of never expecting to see your darts again.

But for around the house/the kids, these will hold up quite well
The eBay Nerf bullet replacements can be called 'blinders' as a nickname, bought the 500 for £5 a month back and they look the same but come with a solid plastic tip, cue bruises, sore eyes and missing fingers with the kids, watch out.
By replacements do you mean the homebrews? They've always been called "Steffans" as long as ive known. Blinders seems quite befitting

Dont know. Was just what they were called when I used to play and collect a little

Stefans are a whole other thing... Really they're for people who're into upgrading their nerf guns or building homemade guns that shoot a lot harder and faster. Mad grownup nerf fans mostly.

These are decent quality, inexpensive, and have a proper soft tip. They do hit a little bit harder than a genuine nerf dart but still safe. £2.55 for 100 but they take a while to arrive:

These are more expensive but still cheaper than genuine darts. They fire a little further, but also straighter, and they have a really good soft tip. Very good. They can be a bit sticky in the drum magazines but that's really the only downside. Oh, they look different so some kids don't like them if they have to be "proper".

There's probably other suppliers of good darts but those 2 I linked are reliable- recommended. I personally wouldn't ever let a kid play with hard topped darts- they're just not safe, they can damage furnishings, walls etc let alone squishy eyes. Some other cheap darts can come apart, even worse- you shoot, the foam stays behind and the hard plastic head comes out like a bloody missile. Not cool. None of these would ever be approved for UK sale.

These jam in the guns and the impact is a lot harder

​That is awesome info. I had no idea there were Nerf enthusiasts out there. Ordered some of the darts you linked to on Amazon. Cheers.
