Mugen Pop Pop: America finally gets one of these wacky Japanese gadgets

The problem with some of the Japanese gadgets I am blogging about is that they either never become available outside Japan or can only be bought through specialized import shops. But now Bandai America decided to bring its Mugen Puchi Puchi bubble wrap bubble pop simulator to the US. Time to celebrate.

The toy, which has been renamed to Mugen Pop Pop in America, features a speaker that rewards players with a number of strange sounds including a dog barking or a fart after every 100 pops. It has been available in Japan since October 2007 and is now available at Toys “R” Us amongst others (for $5.99, with 4 different colors available).

Now we just need the Tuttuki Box (videos) to make it over the pond. I know John Biggs is wating for it.
