I've seen them called poppens, vidros, bidoros, and pekopens. This is the thing I'm talking about:

The same item used by this geisha in this painting:

You blow into them and they make a "pop" sound, hence the name "poppen" and "pekopen".

I've taken a huge interest and these and would like to know where I could purchase one. I've purchasable vidros from the site ビードロ(ポッペン) but the blowers don't ship to the United States and only to areas in Japan.

Does anyone know where I could buy a vidro that can be shipped to the U.S.? Any information is greatly appreciated.

If you search for "Japan package forwarding", you'll find a lot of services that'll let you have the package delivered to an address in Japan, from where they'll forward it to your address in the US.

Not only forwarding services but there are buying services who can buy the item for you for example from a Yahoo auction if there is some payment or communication issue and then forward it to you.
