When it comes to keeping little hands occupied, the latest must-have is a Pop Fidget toy. The toy became popular after it went viral on a TikTok video. Pop fidget toys are like reusable bubble wrap made out of silicone. The idea is for kids to press “bubbles” to hear a slight popping sound, and when all of the bubbles have been “popped,” they may flip the toy over and begin again.
Experts say that fidget toys might help kids focus, particularly those with attention-deficit disorder (ADD), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism concentration. Researchers found fidget toys to have good impacts in a recent case study. The result from the study showed that pupils who used fidget toys improved their academic performance by 10%. These toys help because fidgeting causes the mind to stay steady and focused. Here is a couple of pop fidget toys from best-selling brands that have been tested and have proven to be perfect for your child.Read More
