What is this and why do we need it?
The new antistress toys have replaced squishies (rubber, silicone or gel objects that are pleasant to wrinkle and squeeze in the hands) and spinners (metal or ceramic bearings with rotating blades). Many believe that these sensory toys relieve tension, develop fine motor skills, and improve concentration by shifting attention to tactile sensations. Especially gadgets are suitable for children with increased anxiety and a tendency to repetitive actions – be it lip biting or picking burrs.
What is the difference that one can notice between Pop It and Simple Dimple? The first one is a small rug with convex holes, reminiscent of packaging air-bubble wrap, in which orders come from online stores and which both children and adults love to “pop”. However, in the case of Pop It, this process has no end: the holes are pressed from the other side, which allows you to turn the mat over and burst them again. At the moment of pressing, a characteristic sound is heard – a pop or click, depending on the material of the mat, which creates an additional anti-stress effect.
Simple Dimple is essentially a smaller version of Pop It, not with dozens of holes, but with two or four. The shape resembles a spinner, which allows you to carry it in your pocket or as a keychain and pop it during walks or meetings in Zoom. As you can see, these games are quite good for both adults and children. Besides, psychologists claim that they also help to develop various abilities in the little ones, such as focus, fine motor skills and, most obvious, color differentiation.
Pop the bubbles, score points!
The essence of online versions is much the same – you have to pop the bubbles, only it is done by tapping or clicking the screen. But you can hear the same sound and if you are playing on a smartphone, you can turn on the vibration that you will feel under your fingers. The main objective of the game is to score as many points as you can. You can do it in free play or time mode, play solo or compete with your friends and family.
Either way, it’s going to be a fun and relaxing experience. The best thing about Pop It online is that you can take it anywhere on your mobile device and have a little bit of antistress therapy whenever you need. Immerse yourself into the bright world of Pop Its and Simple Dimples and keep calm and focused whatever happens!
