1. Learning Express

They have many fidgets and a lot of other STEM toys as well. I didn’t find many Pop Its, but they do have a large selection of Aaron’s Thinking Putty and ShaShibo Shape-Shifting Cubes. Learning Express is available online and according to their website, they have a larger selection of fidget toys in the store. You can use the store locator on their website to see if there is one near you.

4. Walmart

As you know Walmart is available in-store and online. They also offer in-store pick-up and delivery. Shopping in-store at Walmart for fidgets you will find Nee Dohs, Tangles, some Pop Its if they are not sold out (also check the Game aisle), and Oddly Satisfying ASMR bars. I’m not too familiar with The ASMR FX toys, from what I gather they are fidgets that are also used for recording or making ASMR sounds. Walmart seems to be the place to get them. Shopping Walmart online you have a huge selection of fidget toys and fidget toy packs at great prices!

5. Target

Shopping target in-store for Fidgets you will find Chuckle & Roar Pop It! regular sized and the XL Pop It! I know from experience they usually have an end cap on the game aisle with squish balls, stretchy toys, and off-brand Pop Its. Online they have a few more PopIts to choose from and a large selection of Aaron’s Thinking Putty.

6. SHEIN

Available online they have a large selection of fidget toys including Pop Its! for cheap. They have some of the newest and trendiest fidgets. SHEIN also has bundles like the one shown here. They usually come with a random color of each type of fidget in the picture; this 7 piece set is $12. Another great thing about SHEIN is they have unique fidgets you would find at other places. I’m not going to lie, SHEIN is probably my favorite store out of this list. For their unbeatable prices and uniqueness. Their shipping has always been reliable for me too.

7. Claire’s

Claire’s is available in-store and online. They offer a pretty large selection of unique Pop Its! They have tie-dye and rainbow as well as fun shapes like a game controller and this avocado. They also have Nee Dohs and different slimes.

They have a large selection of fidgeting-type toys for party favors, school handouts, or carnival prizes. Shipping takes a little while so give yourself time if you are planning a party. This 50 Piece fidget spinner, Rubix cube, marble mesh, and monkey noodle assortment is $47.

10. The Red Balloon Store

They have a large selection of many types of fidget toys as well as many other toys and games. They carry a wide range of fidgets including the popular more common ones and others I have not seen before. Their prices seem to be decent for the regular-sized fidgets, but some of the smaller keychains and mini fidgets looked a little overpriced. They do carry SPEKS which they have priced at $28 which is usual. Though this mini avocado simple dimple is priced at $8.

11. Wish

From what I have heard wish is a popular place to find fidgets. I personally have not ordered from them, but what I have gathered from browsing the website. They have a large selection of fidgets and fidget toy packs, but you want to read carefully about what is included in your purchase and how much and how long shipping and delivery will take. This fidget toy pack is $7 plus $2 shipping and it arrives in three and a half weeks.

12. the paper store

The paper store has a surprising amount of fidget toys. I didn’t expect them to carry so many. I will say some are a little overpriced, but they also have some of the most unique fidgets. They carry Aaron’s Thinking Putty, Twiddles, Pop Its!, Rubix Cubes, Snappers, Nee Dohs, Shashibo Shape-Shifting Boxes, Orbeez/DNA balls, and SPEKS. Definitely a store worth checking out if you are on the hunt for unique and quality fidgets. The paper store is available in-store and online. Check their website for locations.

They have all the major teams and they come in packs of two currently on sale for $13 the regular price shows $20. Not bad for a sports team fidget! They also have magnetic finger rings with the team’s logos on the outside. Which come in a pack of 6 for $20.

16. Uncommon Goods

Uncommon Goods has fidget toys for adults or college students. We need fidgets for every age and these are just too good to leave out of this shopping guide. This first one I fell in love with and it would make for a very nice gift at a price of $145. This pricey fidget is composed of a glass marble on top of a glass base, shaped kind of like a filled-in bowl. The marble rests in the divet of the glass base and can be twisted to spin in the base or you can pick it up and roll it around. As I mentioned, definitely a gift for an adult.

The Second Fidget I came across was this complex-looking pen. It’s a fidget pen that is made to tinker with when you’re not writing, but while at work with it. I thought this would be a great find or gift for a guy who tinkers with things at his desk.

Last, but certainly, not least fidget I just love! Is this a coffee mug! If you know someone who loves their coffee or tea and is always rubbing or running their fingers through something, then this is the coffee mug for them! It has grooves for your fingers to follow the paths on the mug while you sip your warm beverage and meditate.

17. Kohl’s

Kohl’s came up when I was searching for fidgets. This is great since many people live near one, but to my surprise, they carry a limited selection. Which mostly consists of the Aroma Spinner. A fidget spinner that allows you to insert essential oils into the spinner arms for an aromatic stress-relieving experience. Interesting! I would be curious to know how well it works for someone who uses essential oils. If this is you and you’ve tried it out please leave us a comment and let us know! Nevertheless, you can find the Aroma Spinner at Kohls.

19. SPEKS

SPEKS are small powerful magnetic balls that you can use to build shapes and structures at your desk. “They refer to themselves as the coolest magnetic desk toy.” They may be small, but they pack a big punch and can be quite addicting! On their website, you can find them for sale for $25. Most stores sell them for $24-$30.

20. Tom’s Fidgets

Tom’s fidgets are advocates of the original flippy chain or bicycle chain. They also have an infinity ball, which is a bunch of metal rings connected together in. away that you can continuously “roll” the ball around in your hand.

What’s Up with Fidget Toys?

Fidget toys are sensory objects or trinkets that you tinker with, squeeze, move about your hands, or “fidget with,” while you are doing your work.

Whether that be school work or work, work. Fidgeting with an object while we are concentrating on something else (usually work), helps keep us focused by being that distraction that we would otherwise go looking for.

It’s not just those with an ADHD diagnosis who fidget either, we all do a little bit, in some way.

For example, do you ever find yourself biting a pen cap, picking your face, or playing with your hair? Or just picking your phone up off your desk to… look at or “check” the time or your notifications when you know nothing has changed.

Well…You’re fidgeting! We all do it.

Now imagine, you are one of our kids…

With all that energy and their Tik Tok-sized attention spans.

-Yeah, I’d Fidget too!

Imagine you are one of their teachers and need all of them to sit down and focus…

-Difficult Task, Huh?

So there is no question as to why teachers wouldn’t allow fidgets. The little bit of noise they might make, are no worries! Compared to the disruptions teachers could be dealing with in a classroom; with all that unfocused energy.

Which Fidget Toy Do You Prefer? A Video with 21 Questions about fidget toys and which you prefer?

When Did Fidgets Start?

Technically, In 1993 when a Therapist, Catherine, developed fidget toys for children who were ADHD, Autistic, or displayed other behaviors where fidgets could come in handy!

If you think back to our fidgeting examples of playing with your hair or picking at your skin, you will remember we all do it and the first fidget toy My Mom and I could come up with was a Bottlecap.

A Good Ole’ Bottle Cap or Snapple cap. It pops! But it’s not nearly as satisfying as the kids Pop it! today.

Why are Fidget Toys so Trendy Now?

Most people blame it on Tik Tok! That is completely valid, but I think there is more to it!

Before the current fidget toy craze, the fidget spinner had a popular run in 2016-2017, and then yes Tik Tok started in 2016 and the oddly satisfying videos of the Pop Its became popular.

Then, COVID happened and that made everyone anxious. Distant learning and social distancing left everyone to fidget in their own little personal bubble.

With all the pent-up energy and the need to be focused on virtual learning or working from home, therapists and teachers have recommended and used fidgets to help their patients release the extra energy.

Leading to their popularity at school.

Now if you are worried about them interfering with work in the classroom, there is no need to worry. From what I have read, heard, and experienced. The teachers are very upfront with their students that they are a tool to stay focused and if they start causing distractions they will not be used. The kids have seemed to respect that quiet well because they appreciate the tools as much as the teachers.

Like my daughter said, “They really help me while I’m bored and trying to do my work.”

-My Daughter

Similar to why kids play video games instead of just watching T.V., they get bored. Today’s kids are used to focusing on five different screens at once. With brief spans of attention spent on each one.

What’s up With Trading?

One of those screens they have been cycling through has all but trained them for this fidget toy trend.

That screen would be ROBLOX.

While we have been fidgeting in our bubble, we have also been trading pets in Adopt ME! Trading pets and training to trade fidgets!

That’s the latest, all the kids want to trade fidgets and watch fidgets be traded.

Kids love watching fidget toys and fidget toys being trading so much that on our channel CandyToyBox on YouTube we have niched down into fidget toys!
