This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Playthings designed for keeping some or all of those ten digits busy have come a long way from the days of finger puppets made from sewing scraps and marble-sized blocks of wood. The items in this collection cover a wide range of age groups, interests and entertaining activities, from cuddly pets with motion and sound effects to stress-relieving fidget toys and miniature puzzles to solve. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 08, 2019:

Along with finger puppets in the classic style, there are fidget toys, miniature puzzles, and film-themed options for children and adults in this selection. Some are geared toward providing coping mechanisms and support for those on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorders, but any of these items could be tucked into a pocket to provide an amusing and portable way to relieve boredom.
