One of the cheapest toys in the world comes in the mail – the big spools of bubble wrap stuck in with everything you order online. We lay them out on the living room floor, and let our daughter run like mad straight over them.
But what happens when you run out of the real thing? Not to mention the fact that it’s not exactly enviro-friendly?
You pick up the new Mugen Pop Pop from Bandai. They’re bubble machines without the sticky soapy mess, and they fit right on your keychain – and in little hands. And since you keep on popping without stopping, you’re not loading up the landfill with extra bits of popped-out plastic.
The little squares – in blue, pink, green or “ice” white – are topped with eight bubbles that never run out of air (although you might have the refresh the batteries after getting your own stress out). Let them have at the poppage, and see which kid hears the surprise sound first.
