  1. OMG!! My brother had a big popper that he decided sto suction to his forehead. It left a massive purple circle on there for a few days. I think we got it out of a cap’n crunch or quaker rice squares box.

  2. I liked to place these on a table or counter as I walked through an occupied room… And then wait around the corner for the inevitable startled scream a minute later.

  3. My nine year old son came home with one of these today I have not seen one for years since I was a child such fun loved collecting different ones
