Popping the bubble wrap is one of my "hobby" during the childhood.. and I believe many people have the same hobby.. It's just human nature that we all love to squeeze the bubble wrap and listen to the pop sound :P .
Because of this "hobby" that we all have, Bandai has come out with this little cool stuff called Mugen Puti Puti. It's a rubber-covered keychain, with some small buttons on it, that when pushed mimic the experience of popping bubble wrap. The popping sound comes from a tiny speaker in the keychain. What makes it even cooler is that for every 100 pops, it will produce an unexpected sound effect such as dog barking, fart, sexy woman voice, etc...
300,000 unit of Mugen Puti Puti was sold within the first 9 days after it was released in Japan, and Bandai is projecting to sell more than 2 million units by March 2008. It will soon becomes another popular cool toy, just like tamagochi..
