Although Popits might seem like another useless piece of plastic popularized by tweens on TikTok, this reality is false. Popits provide stress relief, making them immensely useful. As you poke each bubble and listen to the discrete but noisy “pop”, your stress will be relieved and create instant relief from the responsibilities of life. Whether school has been hard, your friends hate you, or you just failed a test, popping a Popit will allow you to leave your worries behind. Popits are fashionable as well. They come in hundreds of different colors and shapes. Some are small enough to stick on a keychain! I always keep a Popit in my backpack, just in case I need to calm down after failing a test. These toys are truly the best thing to keep in your backpack.
