    Once You Pop, You Just Can't Stop

    What is it that draws a person to popping the bubbles on bubblewrap?  It seems like whenever there is bubblewrap around you instantly get transformed into a kid again who can't resist the temptation.  And then, once you start you can't stop until every single bubble has...

    Bubblewrap Is Awesome!

    I absolutely love bubblewrap, my boyfriend gave me two rolls of it for my 16th birthday this year! And my dad had this bubblewrap with huge bubbles that we got from work, at my b-day party we put it on the floor and danced on it, it was awesome!

    One of the Very Few Perks of My Office Job

    Fun with packaging :] and yeah, ive heard the saying 'small things amuse small minds' but isn't that better than never being amused at all? in any case, i'm thankful for my ability to be amused at length by bubblewrap. Thankful.

    Bubble wrap popping is such a calmer!!! ...but then again, the sight of bubble wrap ready to be popped brings such excitement =) I always try to keep bubble wrap from packages I receive if they're reasonable size. Don't get me wrong, I love bubble wrap no matter the size - no...

    The Most Fun You Can Have By Yourself.

    There are few things more satisfying than a really big sheet of bubblewrap, and a quiet office. I try and aim to pop every single bubble individually, but I always get impatient and resort to scrunching it up and jumping on it. It makes such a good noise!

    Doesn't Everybody?

    I like playing with bubblewrap.  I don't know why.  I just do.  One of the neat things is that my wife has sheets of bubblewrap because she uses it in therapy with her patients.  It is amazing what popping sheets of air trapped in plastic can do for you.  I'm not bubblewrap...

    I can't resist the temptation of just popping it. No matter how hard I try to not, the more I want to. It's oh so much fun! And, there is so many ways of popping it. It takes me back in time and lets me be a kid all over again. Maybe that's why I can't resist the bubble wrap.

    OMG. Who DOESN'T love playing with bubblewrap? Pop to your heart's content... Take out your aggression on something that cannot fight back, and oooh, that delightful popping sound when you've decimated a little pocket of air.

    Bubblewrap: The Sound Of Fire, Without The Flames.

    I often wondered why we love popping bubblewrap. Really theres not much to single out as to why we might like it. You can pinch it, or twist it, and thats about it. It shouldnt be so likeable. . . ?   I believe, and it may just be me, that it subconsciously reminds us of...

    Most satisfying:popping individually with fingers....small groups too Moderately satisfying: twisting the whole dang sheet Not really satisfying: stomping on sheet like I did when we were kids Vote: fat bubbles or small..I say fat
