It's All About The PopSockets

This post contains Amazon affiliate links which means if you click on the link and purchase, I get a small amount so that I can buy a book. Yay!



My daughter Natalie was all, "It's all about the PopSockets!"

I blinked. "Wasn't it all about the Fidget Spinners?"



"It WAS. But not anymore."

Natalie always teaches me new things. She shows me YouTubers who seem to make messes, but she finds hilarious. (Logan Paul.) She sings new songs that I've never heard of in my life.

And she shows me new products.

PopSockets are things you press onto your phone:




You can get them in a variety of colors and pictures. Natalie opted for a donut because, well, "I love donuts."

I guess they make the phone easier to hold.

"What's so difficult about gripping the phone in your palm?" I asked, baffled.



Natalie rolled her eyes. "Old people do that."

"I bet your PARDON?" I was offended.



Natalie giggled. "I'm kidding." But from the look on her face, I'm not sure if she was.

You can prop your phone up with the PopSocket as well.



And if you don't want the PopSocket, you can push it in and hold it "the old fashioned way" as Natalie likes to call it. Natalie also wants the PopSocket mount, which allows you to stick your phone to a wall, a locker, mirror, etc...but she's run out of allowance.

I don't have one on my phone yet. I'm still holding it the "old fashioned way."

Do you have a PopSocket?

(If not, you can pick one out here!)

  2. This looks like a really handy goody. I might be old coz I don't have one and my phone is still small enough to hold in my hand haha

  6. No I don't have one. You can prop your phone up - just what I don't need. I can barely see my phone when I am holding it up to my face.

  7. OK I have to admit I've not heard of a popsocket before, it sounds like they can be kinda useful though seeing as they let you prop your phone up as well.

  8. I actually have one but haven't used it. I'd better get that on the phone pronto so I don't appear to be a geezer! lol

  9. I just saw these for the first time over the weekend. Same donut one! I wouldn't need help holding my phone, but being able to prop it up seems useful!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Bawahahaha! That sounds like something my daughter would say to me. Count me with the old people too but it is cute and would be really handy propping up the phone.

  11. My kids are constantly telling me about things I HAVE TO GET. My daughters suggested I get a pop socket but I already have a holder a on my phone that I like and doesn't stick out and I can loop my fingers through so I won't drop it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. HAHAHA. Old people hold their phones. I did see someone with one of these that looked like a pop tab and it was pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have never heard of this! I could definitely do something like this especially when I'm traveling. Sometimes all I have is my phone to look at in a movie on my phone gets old when you have to hold the phone all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I keep saying I need one of these, lol. I got the kids one because they're spoiled like that and always have cool stuff before I do.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Never heard of it! But both of my kids HATE fidget spinners and think they're useless so maybe this will help.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I saw these a while back once before. I may need to look into getting one for my neices and myself.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Honestly, I'm really glad that the fidget spinner fad died down, this actually seems pretty useful. I would even get one myself for when I'm working and watching netflix on my phone. :)

    1. I can relate. My grand daughter thought she had to have one of every kind and every color and I would play with them more than her lol.

  18. My son hasn't asked for one yet. I'm sure it's going to come though. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. haha, I guess I fall into the 'old' category! But truthfully it's the younger generation that keeps us old folks hip and up-to-date on all the new and cool fashions and gadgets

    ReplyDelete
  20. Cool! This is the first time I've seen that and I am so excited to have one! I would want the PopSocket mount.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I got mine last summer, and it has saved my phone so many times. It makes selfies easier, and it just adds another level of security when holding your phone. I love mine and can not recommend them enough.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Add me to the old group. I have never heard of these and I don't see why you can't just hold your phone. lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. We just recently tried one of these and really loved it - we had no way of knowing how to describe it, so we'll definitely point to your post and share with our readers!

  24. "Old people do that" oh kids are awesome! :) I have not seen this yet, although my kids do not have phones so I don't think they would need this. Those fidget spinners they are still obsessed with though!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am sat here thinking when in world did popsockets come in? How! Who! what! When? I am so behind, kids of these days are way to advanced

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've never heard of it so I'm still holding my phone the old fashioned way. It definitely seems cooler than some of the older options out there.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You're daughter is funny. :) I've been seeing this trend with young ones lately and I must admit they look cute on your phone paired with your fancy phone case and fancy nails :D I for one don't use it either but it's an adorable phone accessory.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have been seeing these things EVERYWHERE. I guess I'm old to because I don't see the point hahahah!

  29. I've been hesitating to get a pop socket for ages because I don't know if it will add more bulk to my phone! But I tried out my friend's one last week and it's amazing! I just have to find a cute design now :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've never heard them called pop sockets. I remember my neighbor got a phone case with a built-in finger loop a few years ago. That must have been the precursor to the "pop socket." They're cool, but they make it really hard to put your phone in your pocket. I'm fine with the old fashioned way!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Never heard of these, but they look fun, and useful. I can easily see our girls using them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks like it might have been designed for old people but the marketeers decided to paint em bright colours and sell them to the kids. Not seen them over here yet but I'll be ready when they arrive.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I know this designed for kids, but I think I want one! It could come in handy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I must be totally old and lame...I had never heard of a PopSocket before. Oops! And of course, this is a few days after I got my kids their own fidget spinners...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have never heard of these before. There are so many new crazes, that I just can't keep up. I have all this to look forward to haha.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have seen the pop sockets but I have never used them before. They do look like a cute way of handling phones. But I might be with you and only have my daughter worry about getting things like that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I can't keep up. Every week it's something new. My son loved the fidget spinners, I have to ask him if he knows about pop sockets.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Another old person here :) I think my nephew will love the pop sockets very much.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Put me in the old bracket, because I had no clue what these were!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I initially have no clue about Popsocket. And when I saw the photos, I realized, why these companies gives weird names on its products?
    Actually this item is not so new... I've seeing these everywhere in the Philippines and when I travel in Asia since two years ago :D
    Sone even decorate it with mini-stuff toys with it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have just started seeing these come around. I am completely on board because I didn't like the fidget spinners everyone had to have!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I keep seeing these everywhere! lol I can't decide if I would find them useful or annoying though.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think these Popsockets are kind of cool. Yes I am an old person a little and have not seen these before but they seem to come in handy. Thanks for sharing this neat item.
