A 12-year-old Nevada County boy has created, launched and is looking for investors in his company.

Sebastian Merrick created NerfTech and its product is the NH1, a device designed to mount items onto a series of Nerf guns.

Nerf is a Hasbro toy brand that develops mostly foam-based weaponry, as well as sporting equipment.



Merrick’s NH1 is a mounting device that enables the attachment of laser pointers, flashlights, and other accessories to a line Nerf weapons.

Merrick launched the company through Sierra Commons, a non-profit small business education and incubation organization in Nevada City, where he has been visiting with his father.




Merrick enjoys playing with the Nerf weapons with his friends, but grew tired of rigging attachments with tape.

The NH1 Nerf Gun accessory holder is targeted towards the millions of kids that use the popular toys.

NerfTech is launcing a Kickstarter campaign to help take the company to the next level.
