Since its first appearance in European stores in 2006, Pop the Pig has “popped” off the shelves and into the hearts of children around the world. After all, what child can resist an adorable pig who hungrily chomps so many hamburgers his belly pops?
In 2009, Goliath brought Pop the Pig to America, where hamburgers are in abundance. Since then, Pop the Pig has been promoted with a national TV commercial campaign, viral commercials, blog posts, social media, and appearances on TV shows such as Live! with Kelly.
With Pop the Pig’s quirky eating habits, cute chef costume and exciting “pop,” this hungry pig has become an international classic whose popularity has grown as quickly as his expanding belly!
“It is now sold in over 50 countries and in every country where we have introduced this game, it has become a blockbuster,” said David Norman, president of Goliath Games US office. Enjoyed by kids around the world, Pop the Pig has sold over 7 million units, and sales continue to grow, selling over a million games per year.
