Remember popping bubble wrap as a kid? That satisfying “pop” sound as you broke each bubble one by one? That satisfying feeling has now inspired a new trend in the fidget toy craze: Go Pop!

Go Pop (formerly called Last One Lost) first went viral on TikTok and YouTube, creating a popping frenzy that both kids and adults have been going crazy over.

Go Pop is a simple, easy to follow game that can be taken literally anywhere – in the car, to the beach, while camping, to the park, or even at your desk or on the couch. And unlike bubble wrap, it doesn’t make an annoying loud pop sound when you pop a bubble!

The rules are simple: on your turn, choose the number of bubbles to pop in a single row. The last player to pop the last bubble loses the round. The game uses a bit of strategy and can really make you think. Simply flip the board over and start another round. That’s it! There’s no set up whatsoever. Go Pop is made of silicone and has no loose parts, making it easy to clean and disinfect.

But perhaps even more fun than the game itself has been the use of this toy as a fidget. Some have called it the latest fidget craze since fidget spinners, and we have noticed the game become even more popular amongst younger children as a sensory toy. Go pop has many sensory and developmental benefits. Popping the little silicone bubbles can help kids to focus. Some say it has stress-relieving benefits and can help with anxiety and self-regulation.

Parents love that this popping toy is a fun, screen-free activity that everyone from preschoolers to teenagers can enjoy.
