A handy power-up boost when you need it – this PAC-MAN Pop-Up Backpack can be folded away into a self-contained travel pouch when not in use, but is full size when opened up. Featuring a design filled with classic PAC-MAN icons, the Pop-Up Backpack is inspired by the popular 1980s arcade game and is a great gift for PAC-MAN fans and gamers. First launched in 1980, PAC-MAN was one of the most influential arcade games of the decade. Featuring the iconic pizza shaped hero (based on the Japanese character for mouth), the game established the trend for a mascot led gaming franchise, and the character soon became an instantly recognizable icon of popular culture. Starting from a simple premise of collecting pellets around a maze (whilst being pursued by the four intrepid ghosts of the game – Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde), the game has remained popular ever since, spawning numerous sequels, remakes and spin-offs, and is a much treasured classic by gamers young and old alike. The PAC-MAN Pop-Up Backpack is an officially licensed product.
