Big in Japan: Never-ending bubble wrap


Who hasn’t spent the better part of an hour popping bubble wrap, at age 20? Exactly. The Japanese have come up with a toy that constantly fills and re-fills bubbles in a sheet of bubble wrap. No doubt insanity ensues.

The toy, “Eternal Poppety-Pop,” only costs about $8 and delivers thrill after predictable thrill, not unlike the movie Iron Man, I assume.

Wanna hear what a bubble wrap manufacturer had to say about all this? Yes, you do.

Behind the popularity of bubble wrap is people’s natural urge to pop bubbles when they see them, like the desire to sit down when they see a chair.

If it keeps kids off the streets, then, by all means, pop away.
