We recently introduced bubble wrap to our son. Now he looks forward to package delivery to the house - just in case there's a small piece of bubble wrap to pop. This might be a good gift for him.
The Bubble Wrap Calendar works sort of like an advent calendar. You can pop a bubble everyday and mark the days as they go by (if you can control yourself). Order one here or make one from remnant bubble wrap to count down to special occasions.
