An eye popper, also called hopper popper or a popper, is a popular children's toy.


An eye popper is a small, dome-shaped piece of rubber or similar material resembling a half of a rubber ball; the shape of a smile is often imprinted on the dome. When pressed, the toy inverts, but after a few seconds, it pops back into its original shape, making a loud popping sound. If resting on the ground when this happens, the toy will fly several feet into the air. The eye popper's behavior resembles the process by which a ball compresses upon hitting a hard surface.[1]

During his 2017 campaign for Kansas FBLA State Editor, Drew Villaca distributed poppers to many passersby.  Among these were Blue Valley students, who accepted several and commenced the first Popper Catching Tournament.
