Lazer Tag is a line of Nerf laser tag blasters, called "taggers" by the advertisements and packaging.
Lazer Tag products fire an invisible laser that other compatible taggers pick up and "take damage" from.
Lazer Tag was previously owned by Tiger Electronics. After the original release of the Deluxe Tagger, the brand gained success and Tiger released additional taggers and accessories to go along with it; a new name went along with the new products: Lazer Tag Team Ops.
After the release of two more taggers, the brand was purchased in 2006 by Hasbro, who, by 2008, decided to discontinue all taggers and accessories, with the exception of the newly-released Phoenix LTX. The name was also changed back to Lazer Tag some time around then.
At the 2012 Toy Fair, Hasbro announced a new series of Lazer Tag taggers separate from the Nerf brand. Called Lazer Tag Augmented Reality, the new products would be compatible with smartphones to present single-player games with, as the name would suggest, augmented reality technology. This series ultimately replaced the Nerf Lazer Tag series. The Phoenix LTX was the only tagger to be released under the Nerf license.
