Anti-Stress Push Pop Pads: Like Bubble Wrap, Without the Pop

Stressed out? I think we all are these days. You need an outlet for that stress, or it will eat you up like the shark in Jaws. Enter these anti-stress Push Pop Pads, a stress-reliever and fidget toy for people like me who recognize they’re entirely too uncoordinated to operate a fidget spinner.

Available as $16 two-packs in a variety of shapes and colors, the silicone pads are lined with bubble wrap like dots that can be pushed, making an “audibly satisfying click” as they are, melting your stress away like a scoop of ice cream on a sidewalk in August (alternatively, there are these electronic bubble wrap poppers).

Did you know that according to a very questionable survey paid for by the makers of Bubble Wrap® that popping their product for 60 seconds can provide the stress relief equivalent of a 33-minute massage? Because I call shenanigans on that, especially considering I just popped bubble wrap for five whole minutes and still have a back full of knots and have to do my taxes.
