You’ve seen fidget spinners but what’s the next skill toy to take the playground by storm? Thumb Chucks are vying for the crown. So we asked one young man to give them a go.
We’ve also got a set to give away, details below!
Fidget toys are very popular with children at the moment. Lucien, 6, tried out the green Thumb Chucks. It is a new toy that has two rubber light-up balls connected by a thick ribbon.
“The Thumb Chucks light up when you are playing with them. You can twist, twirl, bounce and fidget with them. They are a bit like conkers. They swish around. Thumb Chucks light up when you bang them together. They are made of rubber and you don’t have to worry about them breaking if you drop them on the floor.
“I tried to twirl and spin them. I love the way they light up in my hands. But I would say this toy is more suitable for older children as they have better control of their hands and they can learn to do cool tricks from the internet. As a little boy I prefer my fidget spinner because it is easier to control and all my friends have got them. For those who want something a little more challenging, Thumb Chucks are your choice.”
There we have it, Thumbs Chucks are cool but more suited to older children than fidget spinners. Got a kid that’s getting tired of fidget spinners and looking for a new challenge? Then give Thumb Chucks a go!
