How does the Pop It! Invaded Your Home
So basically this starts from my home. Every year I see a new toy in my home and kids are playing with them with same excitement. Sometimes there is a Doll, Remote-Control Car, Slime or a Fidget Spinner. This year, a Pop It!- a small, flexible silicone toy which you can pop it and out. And in some months we have 8 of them in different shape, size and colors. Whenever I go to market I saw a new design of this Pop It.
Also in my home there is different types of Pop It like in - Fruit shaped, Animals Shaped, Unicorn etc. "It seems like Pop It is ruling the toy market". In every shop pop it are in bulk amount many sites start selling and trading of pop it in bulk amount, there are many wholesalers who do trade of pop it. And the sale of pop it is risen from the past year. As an increasing demand some countries start importing of pop it. This made me more curious about it. Once I was scrolling TikTok and found a viral video of Monkey playing with Pop It. Then suddenly I search more about it then I found an interesting back story behind Pop It.
The Toy has a back story
Pop It is considered as a portable toy which is used by many Adults as a Stress Buster or a relaxing toys and as well as used by children to keep their finger busy.
But Pop Its were originally invented in 1975 by Theo and Ora Coaster. a couple and also friend of Anne Frank. the inspiration of its design came from a dream Ora Coaster had when her sister, an artist, passed away from breast cancer. Her son Boaz Coaster said, "She said imagine a large field of breasts ladies breasts, that you can push the nipple .She went to him and she said, do a carpet of nipples that you can press from one side to the other. And he did just that.” In the mid ’70s, Ora’s sister died from breast cancer, and shortly after, she had a dream about a field of breasts. She woke up and told that she wanted to create a game based on her idea. “Imagine a field of breasts, that you can press from one side, and then press from the other side,” Boaz Coaster, her son and co-C.E.O. of Theora Design, said when describing his mother’s vision. Theo made a temporary product that put in showroom for decades. The company made it with silicone to give the game a better and comfort hand feel, and ultimately Mr. Capon of Fox Mind decided to manufacture and market it as a game called Last One Lost, a logic puzzle where the person who presses the last bubble remaining on the board loses. It hit the toy fairs in 2013.
But the game was relaunched under the Pop It! brand and sold at Target in 2019 that sales really started to take off, said Mark thoma, vice president of design and marketing at Buffalo Games, a company that helps distribute the Pop It!
Is fidget toys actually helpful for Children?
Yamalis Diaz , a clinical psychologist at N.Y.U. Grossman School of Medicine, said that the evidence is mixed on whether fidget toys are helpful for kids who are struggling to focus in academic settings. One study will show much better ability to stay long in any work or task for kids with A.D.H.D. who use fidget spinners in the classroom.
Dr. Diaz, who specializes in treating children with A.D.H.D., said that in her experience, the usefulness of a fidget toy is unique to each kid. She described two children in her practice who had the same diagnosis and had chosen a Rubik’s Cube as a fidget toy. Of course, toys don’t need to have a purpose to bring our children a great deal of joy. They were negotiating relationships by trading toys.
