Ever since the fidget spinner craze, fidget toys have been just about everywhere you look. TikTok users became obsessed with one type in particular: Pop fidget toys. These toys might look like glorified and reusable bubble wrap, but everyone is obsessed with them — both kids and parents alike. It’s no surprise, that Amazon’s best-sellers toy section is full of these fun toys.
If your child is anxious and has trouble focusing, these push-pop fidget toy could help. Rather than playing around with a pen, wringing their hands or other fidgets, they can focus their attention on a colorful silicone, BPA-free sheet. When they press each bubble in, it makes a satisfying popping sound. They can continue to go down each row, column or push the bubbles in at random. When they’re done, they simply turn over the toy and start over. There hasn’t been many studies done about the benefits of fidget toys for kids, but if you’re someone who often reaches for a stress ball or fidget spinner, this might be a worthwhile replacement.
These fidget toys are popping up at playgrounds and even on adults’ desks. The toy is portable and aesthetically pleasing. It comes in all kinds of fun shapes (like a unicorn) and colors (like tie-dye), so these toys are kind of irresistible.
The pop-it silicone fidget toys have some ASMR-qualities, which some people find very soothing.
