About Us

Popcorn International, Inc. is a privately held California Corporation formed in 1992. We have been leaders and pioneers in the foam mat industry since day one. When none of the big chains would touch our product back in the day, we went out and created our own distribution channel to consumers with over 60 mall-based kiosks, and when the Internet came along, we were the first foam mat company to be there, in 1995! You can expect innovation from us. Our business and sales office is located in Aliso Viejo, CA. We are best know for our premium quality Wondermat® brand interlocking foam puzzles and mats; with primary markets in Japan and the United States, where we run our own distribution and retail (Internet) operations.
