My 10 year old son is addicted to fidget spinners, gadgets and cubes. He loves things that light up, make noise and move. There are a full line of finger play gadgets and gizmos that do these things in new ways. Zing Dama is a ball on a string with a catcher ring that challenges your coordination and persistence. The goal is to capture the ball in nine different places. It is portable and lightweight with LED lights making it perfect for outdoors or after dark.
Whether you have a young elementary age girl or older middle school teen, Smooshy Mushy’s are super fun and relevant.

But trust me, if you can find them, they are sure to be a hit!
Look for them online but you may have better success shopping in store at Walmart!
