Called a “classic” by several retailers surveyed, this technologically updated version saves the prankster’s breath because it reinflates after every use. Kids can place these under seat cushions and wait for an embarrassing noise when someone plops down. Ja-Ru holds the patent to this unique self-inflating item.
— First introduced by the Jem Rubber Co. of Toronto in 1930, the classic Whoopee cushion has been a favorite ever since, says Mark Newgarden, author of “Cheap Laughs: The Art of the Novelty Item” (Picturebox Inc., 2004).
— Phil French, co-owner of Whirligigs and Whimsies in Bethesda, Md., says he used to order the self-inflator by the dozen, “but now I’m buying in 24s.”
— The two top-selling practical joke items at Rebecca’s, in Euless, Texas, are the 8” Whoopee cushion and the 6” Whoopee cushion, according to Joe Nazarro, owner of the wholesale supplier.
