Vintage 1950s Toys

Vintage 1950s

Corn Popper

          It  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 and sold and sold the Corn Popper to Fisher-Price for $50.  Holt was an inventor who had received more than 35 patents in the fields of electronics and optical character recognition. He died on April 2, 1996.
          The Corn Popper is a popular toy for young children. It sends tiny, colorful, gumball size balls flying and hitting the plastic dome, to create its signature loud popping noise.
          The wide wheels and easy-to-grasp-and-push handle helps preschoolers with walking. Once children have taken their first steps, this push toy encourages them to keep moving in order to see & hear the exciting "poppity-pop" action. That is, the faster they go, the faster the colorful balls bounce and pop.
