The latest toys of 2021 are sensory poppers for children. But what are they?
These poppers are made from nontoxic flexible silicone which is environmentally friendly and reusable, unlike the popping bubble wrap. I find them quite therapeutic and quite addictive.
Sensory Poppers are brilliant as sensory toys like the fidget spinner in 2019 and are for children with sensory difficulties and/or anxiety. The sensory toy can help concentration and attention in a school room situation. It also helps with coordination and dexterity and relieves stress and improves learning through the “power of mindfulness. Focusing the mind on simple sensory inputs helps to keep kids across a wide range of age groups to keep relaxed, focused and calm”
“Sensory toys are particularly soothing for children with additional learning needs such as autism, ADD, or ADHD. Low-cost but high in value, bubble popper and other sensory toys can be a life saver for children, parents and teachers alike. Anxious or excitable energy can more easily find an outlet when kids can keep their hands busy, reducing emotional or energetic overwhelm’’. (https://www.keycraftglobal.com/)
My 5 year old found a new way to use these poppers. As I have 2 children I have to buy 2 of everything or face a war in the house.
