The I Spy Bag is a super fun fidget toy that both kids and adults will like. The designer hasn’t met anyone yet who doesn’t love playing with it! It’s especially great for anyone with extra needs or for use as a calming down tool. You can choose which trinkets you’d like to include inside for people to find – from buttons to letters!
It’s a great toy to take on a car trip, or use in a restaurant or even at church.
Skill level: Confident beginner – there is a clear vinyl window that you may not be used to but the designer has added lots of tips to help you along the way.
