PoP PoP

When I was a child, I used to play this pop pop during the CNY. Besides, we have all sort of fire crackers which we don't get to see them in the market already. Those were the days. It was fun. We are always looking forward for CNY so we can lit the fire crackers. 

Recently, we saw this box of pop-pop in the shop downtown and hubby immediately bought it. 

Bought at RM26

50 boxes of pop pop


Colorful pop pop
To our surprised, it was colorful. I still remember our pop pop was only WHITE in color. Now, they have such colorful ones.

This are both YX and XJ's 1st time playing with pop pop. To think back, we are not sure why we did not buy the pop pop for the past few years. Hmm...............

YX can't wait till we go back home. He got so excited when we told him what pop pop is and how to play the pop pop. Hubby then took out 1 box and let him throw at the side of a busy road in town.

YX happily throwing his pop pop 

Carefully taking out 1 pop pop

Back at home, YX quickly ran to tell XJ about the pop pop. We brought the kids to the road side to throw (so I don't need to sweep the floor) and both enjoyed themselves.

Maybe before CNY, the 50 boxes of pop pop will be gone ^_^

  1. the pop pops brought back sweet childhood memories. We too, with my brothers and younger sis loved playing this and like what you said, it was only available in white only at that time. I got this for Ian last CNY and he loved that playing with that too!

    Well, at least pop pop is not as dangerous as other fireworks, right!

  9. My girl loves to play with pop pop, too. It's not as dangerous as firecrackers or fireworks because it doesn't involve fire directly... Just throw at the floor and get the POP sound :)

  18. These are the only "firecrackers" my daughter would play when she was small. Didn't like the noisy ones and burnt her foot while playing with bunga api when small... Certainly saves a lot of money.

  25. U had a vy good bargain. I bot 5 boxes from the pasar last wk. 80 sen per box. Mine's colourful too, but it's like a tube. According to the seller, it doesn't hv those 'sand'/residue. So won't make our floor dirty wor. Dunno how it works as I haven't let the kids play yet.

  27. Sarah was also played with Pop2 for the first time during the MoonCake Fest. But after playing about 5 small boxes, she started get bored.

    Do you noticed that the white colour pop2 has a bigger Pop sound than colourful one.

    Anyway, wishing you and your family has a happy and prosperous new year.
