Summer Pierce, Billy Pierce and Kayla Roof pitch Pop It Pal in episode 1005. This product satisfies that “disgusting little habit nobody likes to talk about.” It is a pimple popping simulator and it's catching the toy and novelty world by storm.
Summer and Billy Pierce, a husband and wife entrepreneurial duo, invented Pop It Pal. Driving down the road one day, Summer asked Billy if it would be cool to make a device that recreated popping huge, disgusting pimples. Billy liked the idea and they started developing the product. They figured they could market it to fans of Dr. Pimple Popper, the collection of real zit popping videos that are disgusting people the world over.
Pop It Pal is a patent pending, silicone rectangle with little pore-like holes in it. Fill it with a bottle of Pop It Pal Puss and pop away. The Pop It Pals come in peach or brown colors and the puss comes in Standard or blue glitter color. The product is $19.99 and a bottle of puss is $5 (3 for $12.99). A portion of all proceeds goes toward organizations that battle the bullying problem.
It's become an internet sensation and Fast Company called it “the next Fidget Spinner.” The Pierces and Kayla likely want a Shark to help them quickly capitalize on its trendiness. Will a Shark pop for this unique toy?
