Infinite Toys: Pointless Trinkets are All the Rage in Japan

These toys reproduce moments from everyday life such as peeling a banana or opening a vacuum-packed container

Opening a hermetically sealed glass bottle is an everyday action from which many people derive a certain amount of pleasure, although they don’t really know why. Is it that “pop” sound the stopper makes when it opens and lets the air out? We all know the simple act of opening a bottle is itself insignificant, but, if you find a hidden and incomprehensible pleasure in it, why not repeat it over and over again anytime and anywhere? Infinite Toys reproduce those absurd moments you so enjoy with the sole aim of entertaining and pleasing you. These are the most popular Infinite Toys:

Mugen Puchi Puchi : Bubble Popping Keychain
It’s the famous electronic keychain that- when you press it- will play back the sound of popping bubble wrap, that pointless and addictive pastime many of us love to indulge in. It’s impossible not to pop a bubble when you have a piece of bubble wrap in your hands! That’s why someone came up with this portable simulator. A curious fact: the web site that launched this keychain on the market received 30 thousand visits the day it went on sale. And that’s without a marketing campaign. We’re selling it too, it’s called Poptastic and you can buy it here.

Mugen Peri Peri: Package Opener Keychain
The Peri Peri is a toy that simulates opening a package: a bag of crisps, a cardboard box, a pack of gum, or whatever. Could it be that we associate the act of opening a package with the pleasure we’ll get from discovering what’s inside? A new computer, some cough drops, or an order you placed over the Internet that finally arrives… If you long for these moments, you need Peri Peri.

Mugen Edamame: Soybean Pinching Keychain
If you thought the previous toy was pointless, you won’t find any explanation for this one. At first glance it looks like a simple soybean shaped keychain but- when you press it- a smiling soybean comes out of its sheath and your mind and senses are instantly transported to that oh-so-pleasant moment that is the act of pinching soybeans.

Epoch Banana
With this toy, you’ll be able to peel a banana as often as you like. They say Epoch Banana’s success is thanks to the Banana Diet, a book that’s sold over 700 thousand copies in Japan that recommends eating a lot of bananas every morning in order to lose weight. Many women and men now follow the Banana diet. And what better than a plastic banana to help you simulate the morning’s banana-peeling ritual?

5 second Stadium – Stopwatch that teaches you to count
It’s a stopwatch that can only count to 5 and its purpose is precisely to teach you how to count to 5. Have you ever wondered how long a second lasts? With this stopwatch, you’ll no longer be in doubt. When someone shouts, “Start!” you’ll finally know if you’re doing it right and whether the time you’re the real time. All you have to do is press Start, count to 5 and stop it. If you do it right, the stopwatch will reward you with a little noise. If you do it wrong, it’ll shout at you. They say this stopwatch has links to the 5 second dictum, a rule of unknown origin that says when food falls on the ground it’s only safe to ea it if it takes you less than 5 seconds to pick it back up. What’s more pointless, the rule or the stopwatch?

And what moment would you like to relive over and over again?
