Corn Popper

The Corn Popper is a toy manufactured by Fisher-Price since 1957. Aimed at pre-schoolers, when the Corn Popper is pushed or pulled, colored balls inside a plastic dome bounce and create a popping, bouncing noise.

The Corn Popper was invented by Arthur Holt and sold to Fisher-Price for $50.

Corn Popper keyrings are also on the market; they are miniature versions and can still pop corn.

Famous quotes containing the words corn and/or popper:

    For out of olde feldes, as men seith,
    Cometh al this new corn fro yeer to yere;
    And out of olde bokes, in good feith,
    Cometh al this newe science that men lere.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340–1400)

    It is clear that everybody interested in science must be interested in world 3 objects. A physical scientist, to start with, may be interested mainly in world 1 objects—say crystals and X-rays. But very soon he must realize how much depends on our interpretation of the facts, that is, on our theories, and so on world 3 objects. Similarly, a historian of science, or a philosopher interested in science must be largely a student of world 3 objects.
    —Karl Popper (1902–1994)
