Need an ultimate stress buster? This toy lets you pop bubble wrap forever

Have you ever spent minutes trying to pop every last crevice of bubble wrap only to feel empty after finishing it? Well, there's actually a device that could solve this very problem.

Meet Bandai's Infinite Bubble Wrap Air (stylized as the "∞ Bubble Wrap AIR"), a new 2021 version of their classic 2007 keychain toy that perfectly fits in one's pocket.

The Japanese toy company utilized bubble wrap-like buttons to stimulate the satisfying feeling of pressing down on the plastic—without the waste. The simulator keychain also has a speaker on its back that sends out a PFWACK!  sound for the maximum bubble wrap experience.

That's not all though, as different sounds will also come from pressing down at random intervals, such as cat's meow or the crack of a baseball bat to keep fiddlers on the edge of their seats.

Serving as a classic toy from Bandai, the ∞ Bubble Wrap AIR has already won the High Target Toy Category in the 2021 Japan Toy Awards.

The toy is a premium gachapon, or vending machine toy, only available in Japan for 1,000 yen (P463). Meanwhile, its in-store version in selector Bandai shops will sell for 1,078 yen (P500)
