Unlimited Bubble Packing

I am sure some people love to play with bubble packing by pushing them. Bubble packing is plastic materials with air in it, and usually used for as a wrapping of fragile things. This is funny but when people have bubble packing in their hands, they cannot help pushing them.

Playing with bubble packing could be good for relax or get rid of frustration sometimes. Normally, it always has the end. When you push one, it’s done. However, Japanese toy company, Bandai was succeeded to produce endless bubble packing toy.

The toy name is “∞プチプチ (Mugen Puchipuchi)” Bubble packing is called プチプチ informally in Japan, and ∞ means unlimited, which means you can play with bubble packing forever. Of course, sounds come out when you push it. There are 5 different color of it; white, blue, purple, orange and black. It costs 819 yen which is not expensive.

Bubble packing company, Kawakami industrial Co, .Ltd shares large amount of bubble packing in Japan has heart shape one in thousand bubble packing. If you find heart one, you may feel you are lucky. According to this, ∞プチプチ also has a trick. You could hear obviously different sound one in a hundred times of pushing.


In my case, I like to push bubble packing one by one, and destroying them at one time by twisting the sheet. Anyway, Bandai has sold three hundred thousand of ∞プチプチ in 9 days from its on the market. Do you think this toy will be big hit even in other countries??

Fantastic! I want one!
Hehe, can you buy it at their web page?

Did you know that it is popular to bring large sheets of bubble packing along on mountain trips in Norway? It is said to be very good to rescue people who has become very cold and help them to get warm again. Very low weight, but takes a lot of room...

Wish you a nice morning when it comes!:-)

I looked up some website and you can buy one on the Internet, but on Japanese website.

I didn't know about the thing! but, yeah it is true bubble packing is warm. Cleaver idea!

Ragge said...

Hmm.. can you give me the adress and maybe I can manage to buy one by just pressing random buttons :-) Did they say if they shipped outside of Japan?

By the way; why is that boy in the movie at the product homepage crying? Guess the girl start crying after a while too. Shouldn't they be happy? :-D

God, looks scary↑ The above is the address. That is Amazon's site actually. I am not sure whether it ship goods to foreign countries or not though.

You know,the boy is too excited! It means that much mugen puchipuchi is fantastic. Funny movie it is for sure :D

For Amazon.co.jp, I think it depends on the seller... If the seller ships worldwide, then anyone can buy it.

Here also, we like to push the bubble, but I think it's very Japanese to create a product just for this "use".

For Ragge: why you don't use mylar foil rescue blanket, it's more effective and need a lot less room.

Ragge said...

Thanks for the adress! Didn't get time to try buying it yesterday, but will try again today :-)

I didn't see anything about shipping, but hope amazon jp will ship overseas like the uk- and us-amazon.

pby: sounds like a good idea. Don't know why we don't use that more, but I'll guess this is what the professionals use. Definately easyer to bring along. But I wonder if they work in two different ways, bubblewrap is isolating while mylar foil is reflecting?

PBY said...

For Ragge: mylar does more than isolating. If you are inside the blanket, it reflects the heat coming from the body, therefore, you don't loose any heat.
