Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day is real! Invented by accident in late 1950s America, bubble wrap is almost more famous for the fun of popping its bubbles rather than its obvious use for packing fragile items.
The last Monday in January is supposedly Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day.
If you have a constant need for a bubble wrap fix then go to Japanese company Bandai. who has an electronic device called Puchi Puchi that fits on your keyring and provides a continuous popping satisfaction!
