Fidget toys, which are colorful and hand-held, are a real phenomenon for children. Today, Toombow Kids interviews Aminata, age 11, a fan of these amazing toys!
Toombow Kids: Hi Aminata, how are you today?
Aminata: I’m doing great! But I have a cold.
Toombow Kids: Gee, we hope you get better soon! So, can you explain to us what a fidget toy is?
Aminata: It’s a satisfying object that allows you to de-stress and have fun. There are many different kinds!
Toombow Kids: How did you discover fidget toys?
Aminata: In a video on YouTube. A girl who was showing them.
Toombow Kids: Who plays with fidget toys in your school?
Aminata: Some of my friends and some girls from other classes, but we don’t take them to school because we might lose them. A few girls secretly bring them sometimes. I don’t know any boys who play with them, they prefer to play soccer or ping-pong.
Toombow Kids: What kind of games can you play with them?
Aminata: Well, there’s one where the goal is to take turns popping 1, 2 or 3 Pop It bubbles and the last one to pop one loses. It’s also fun to trade fidget toys. Also we can attack each other ! For example, the last time, as a joke with my grandma, we had a war and I threw some at her. But it was just for fun and it didn’t hurt!
Toombow Kids: What is your favorite fidget toy and why?
Aminata: It’s hard to pick… Can I say several?
Toombow Kids: Yes, of course!
Aminata: Squishy! I love them because they are soft things in all shapes like animals, food and they are super cute. I also like the Pop It, I have a big one in the shape of a whale!
Toombow Kids: Thanks a lot Aminata and see you soon on Toombow Kids!
Aminata: Big kisses!
