You can’t go on the Instagram Explore page or Snapchat Discover without seeing at least one oddly satisfying video. Slime squishing and soap cutting are part of a huge craze that doesn’t seem to be going away. And for good reason — oddly satisfying stuff is fun to watch and play with, and can provide a much-needed stress-busting moment.
While you probably don’t have the budget for endless slime variations like the people who make those viral videos, there are some really affordable oddly satisfying items that you can get from Amazon. These 12 products look cool, feel nice, and will give you all the brain tingles.
P.S. If you want to lose yourself in hours of amazingly soothing content, head over to the oddly satisfying subreddit.
