Description: 1957-1963's #785 Corn Popper was the very first Corn Popper that Fisher-Price had ever made. The Corn Popper was a great success and has stayed in production, in one form or another, from 1957 to the present day. The #788 Corn Popper is the same as the #785 except the #788 rolls on plastic wheels. It originally had a wooden base and wooden balls inside, but during it's production it was changed to have a plastic base and plastic balls. Designed for children ages 1 to 3 years old.
