The Popper Fidget Toy which is commonly known as the Bubble Popping Game or Pop It Fidget toy is one of the best and most popular fidget toys for kids available in the market. I would like to share some information about the benefits of this toy and how this fidget toy works with parents who may not have heard of it before. This is a simple yet fun and engaging toy for all ages and I would definitely recommend it for kids and toddlers who have anxiety, OCD issues, and low focus levels.

Just taking a quick look at this popular fidget toy for kids. It looks entirely normal and doesn’t seem that interesting to a parent. However, maybe to a toddler or kid, it wires their brain cells differently and certainly does the job of keeping them entertained. I cannot stress how much this toy has made an impact on my own child’s routine. Let me explain more about these popular fidget toys for kids in the next section…

My learning experience
When I first bought this fidget toy for my child she was rather addicted to it and couldn’t let go of it. For more than half an hour she kept playing with it solo before I attempted to put her to bed. Furthermore, when going out she still wanted to bring this toy out and would continuously play with it in the car. Personally, I felt this toy would really help her to focus better and train her so that she is less frustrated with things that don’t go her way especially when she is very OCD in nature.
After playing it solo for a couple of days, she wanted me to play together with her. After explaining the Rainbow Popper game rules to her and we played it together on several occasions.
To conclude, I’m not sure if I’m too outdated or just too busy with work to have not come across this best and most popular fidget toy for kids earlier. However, if you do not already own this one, it could be a good idea to purchase one for your child. It does make a great gift for any occasion!
