PuchiPuchi bubble wrap simulator
Call it a guilty pleasure, but nothing beats the fun (and, perhaps, the stress-relieving benefits) of popping all the little cells on a sheet of bubble wrap. I fondly remember the days of my youth where there was always a fight to be the first to get to the packing materials that came with a delivery.
Bandai, the Japanese game gurus, have made it possible to fulfill your popping needs virtually anywhere and anytime with the PuchiPuchi bubble wrap simulator. Designed in consultation with an actual Japanese bubble wrap manufacturer, the PuchiPuchi is a small, keychain-ready square of entertainment ready for you to pop away at.
Available in several colors, the PuchiPuchi goes beyond standard-fare bubble wrap and will surprise you on every hundredth pop with one of several unexpected sound effects, such as a door chime, dog bark, fart, or sexy voice. Every thousandth toy features a lucky heart-shaped bubble.
The PuchiPuchi will debut at the Tokyo Toy Show 2007 on June 28th.
