These textured rings are designed to be pulled apart, and looped back together using the suction cups which makes a satisfying sound when pulled apart again.
You can also create a chain by looping each shape together or you can stick them to a wall or window. These are also great bath toys too!
These can also be used as fidget toys, fidgeting is often our body's response to stress or anxiety, research at the University of Hertfordshire in 2005 found that fidgeting improved performance in memory tests and this might be because it lowers the level of cortisol, a stress hormone that interferes with learning. Fidgeting gives your brain something to focus on so fidgeting on these fidget toys can be soothing and may reduce the amount of other, less directed, fidgeting or anxiousness that you may have.
Fidgeting can also serve as a ritual for many people, which can have a comforting and grounding effect by offering predictability, familiarity, and structure.
Cognitive research suggests that fidgeting is associated with how stimulated we are. So this makes us believe that fidgeting may be a self-regulation mechanism to help us boost or lower our attention levels depending on what is required – either calming or energising us.
