The importance of Bubble Wrap is extremely important.. Let me tell you why.
Ok, ok… So it’s not INTENTIONALLY a toy, but the truth behind Bubble Wrap is perhaps even stranger. You see, Bubble Wrap was originally formed from two shower curtains being sealed together, and the inventors tried to market this as wallpaper. It’s perhaps sad that this wasn’t actually successful, who knows how many cases of extreme anxiety could have been solved if all you had to do was pound your walls for a little relief?
Ironically, this wasn’t the only misstep on its way to its true calling, the next thing they tried to market it as was greenhouse insulation, which was also largely unsuccessful. A year later they discovered its perfect purpose, and the line of Bubble Wrap brand packaging came to pass. It started off on an auspicious path with IBM being the first customer, shipping the IBM 1401 in air cushioned comfort out to its many customers.
Each year Bubble Wrap hosts a ‘Young Inventor’ award that encourages them to find ways to use Bubble Wrap outside of packaging. Whether you need a Bubble Wrap door cover to help you keep out the dings, or a Bubble Wrap cushy wheelchair to ensure your loved ones are safe from every danger, these young inventors work every year to try to create the newest Bubble Wrap.
