Pop the Pig “popped” onto store shelves in Europe in 2006 and quickly became the best selling game on the European market. Of course, that’s no surprise; because what child can pass up a pig that eats so many hamburgers it pops?
In 2009, Goliath brought Pop the Pig to America, where hamburgers are never in short supply. Pop the Pig is promoted with a national TV commercial campaign, viral commercials, blog posts, social media, and appearances on TV shows such as Live! with Kelly.
This hungry pig is loved by kids around the world because of his quirky eating habits, cute chef costume, and exciting Pop! Pop the Pig has sold through over 6 million units and sales continue to grow, selling over a million games per year.
“Our goal is to promote healthy eating,” says Sara Furay, Marketing Manager at Goliath. “Eating too many burgers can make anyone feel like their belly is going to bust.” Kids just love this delightful pig.
