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 in 1957 by Arthur Holt, who died in April 1996, and sold to Fisher-Price for $50. The Corn Popper is one of the most popular toys for young children in history, and was designed to help them learn to walk. It sends tiny, colorful, gumball-size balls flying and hitting the plastic dome to create its signature loud popping noise.
