Those redundant Wiimote shells aren't the only Nerf items you can get for the Wii. We introduced Pelican's Nerf Sports Pack way back in February, but it's apparently just now becoming available as a real item. It may look like any other Wii Sports-targeted Wiimote attachment set, but it differs in one significant way, which can be summed up in one silly, trademarked word: Nerf.

All of the attachments are encased in Nerf foam, which, according to the IGN reviewer, allowed Pelican to make them all larger and heavier, and thus more realistic-feeling. Having a small, Nerfy baseball bat like that also tacitly encourages re-enactment of a certain Saturday Night Live skit that we can't help but mention every time we talk about Nerf. This time, it just seemed especially relevant.
