Wherever you watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, chances are pretty excellent that there will be some kind of chip-based snack served as an appetizer. Whether the chip hails from the Tos family of snacks — Tostitos, Doritos or Fritos — or whether it’s a healthier version like pita chips or Sun Chips, something crunchy can be found at just about every Super Bowl party on the planet.
Everybody likes snacking, but these chip bowls can be a haven for all kinds of germs and saliva, especially if there are kids around to try to swipe some crunchy goodness. Now there is a way to stay germ-free and still enjoy your chips. You just have to bust out Takara Tomy’s Potato Chip Hand.
The plastic mini-hand was invented by this Japan toy maker to allow humans to eat chips without getting salt and grease on their fingertips. With just the push of an orange button on the plastic arm, the thumb and forefinger spread apart to form a perfect chip-grabbing claw. Eat and repeat.
Although not recommended by the manufacturer, this $8.00 gadget can also be used to pinch the shoulder of your toddler if he or she dares grab some chips in her drool-filled hand without asking. For more demonstrations on how the Potato Chip Hand works, connect to Takara Tomy.com.
