While kids are still slowly finding their way back into the classroom this month, teachers are likely also remembering how disruptive leading a room full of kids can be—and yes, I’m lumping in college-aged kids, too, because I know when I started university, I was constantly finding ways to hold on to childhood (and, in many ways, I still do).
Anyway, I call myself the queen of desk toys here at Gizmodo, because my workstation is surrounded by things to play with. And when I came across this Tiktok counting down the worst fidget toys, I realized how much of a menace these things can be in a classroom situation. So here’s some inspiration! Of course, you’ll want to proceed with caution when trolling your teacher, because there’s still an entire school year ahead.
