Corn Popper

If you learned to walk in the past 50 years, you've probably done so at some point while pushing this noisemaker on a stick. In 1957, inventor Arthur Holt sold his design for a small plastic dome filled with colorful balls to Fisher-Price for just $50. Since then, the Fisher-Price Corn Popper has become one of the most beloved (and irritating) toys for young children of all time. Designed to keep your baby moving, the Corn Popper sends the gumball-size balls inside flying and hitting the plastic dome to create its signature popping noise.
