Endless Bubble Popping Keychain is a little electronic, rubber

The pop is different, and after a 100 or so pop/clicks you get
to hear a funny sound of some kind; a beep, chirp, rude sound.

array of funky key chains. The crew liked to pop while waiting
for the school bus, talking on the phone, watching TV, but we
saw no long lasting desire to keep popping. However, every time
someone picks one up they started pressing the pop buttons. We
also found it to be excellent exercise source for building
texting muscles in the thumbs!
