Kids will love it. I think some adults will find it cool too.

Eye-safety considerations prohibit usage of a solid cork that jumps like real chanpagne. I suggest a cork that produce a pop sound effect, and has a non-solid part that jumps toward the ceiling.

Two marketing options: 1) Coca-cola et al. will produce a special edition party-bottles with the popping corks. 2) Sell universal multi-usage corks that fit standard bottles.

       They'd be slightly safer if they were tethered to the bottle. Possibly to some object inside the bottle, like in Guinness.   

       Didn't toy guns pop out a cork on a string, sometime in the past? Or is that made up? My reference is a vague memory of "There's a Monster In My Clostet"

       Martinellis Sparkling Cider? Very common at kid's parties in my neck of the woods. Looks and acts like a champagne bottle.

Grolsch. But not for kids!
