Move over fidget spinners, mermaid bracelets are set to be the newest schoolyard accessory that can provide some sensory distraction for kids who need it, and they are way less annoying.

The Magic Mermaid Positivity Bracelet uses the same concept as mermaid pillows to help calm kids and get them focused. If you’re unfamiliar, mermaid pillows are made with rows of reversible sequins that change color when you swipe your hand across them in different directions, allowing you to “draw” patterns that can then be easily erased with another flick of your fingers.

Using the same magical sequin fabric, the Magic Mermaid Positivity Bracelets fit on your wrist like an adjustable cuff, where you can trace and erase designs. The bracelet’s maker, Mermaid Pillow Co. claims that they are calming and can help kids relax and get focused. They are $14.99 each and come in two colors: green/silver and aqua/purple.
