The Air Launcher is a Nerf product that was released in 1976.

It came packaged with the Nerf Rockets set.


Much like the Missile Launcher, this is a simplistic mortar-like device. It is fired by a light stomp of the foot, or a pound of the fist. It mostly is mostly composed of a simple air bladder, that when pressure is applied to, launches all air inside out of the front post.


This is the first Nerf toy to have a blaster-like appearance, predating the Blast-a-Ball. It was discontinued some time after the late 1970s.

It was the only toy released to utilize Nerf rockets.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Air Launcher, simply place one Nerf rocket over the barrel tube at the front of the blaster.

Slam a fist on the yellow air bladder to launch a rocket.
