    Am I being irrational here?

    So idk if a lot of you know about fidgets, I mean, probably, this is an autism forum. they’re just something to fidget with, I’m fine with them, I occasionally use them. My problem is the dumb people that use them as toys and just make them in-usable for those who actually need them. It’s...

    Chewy Stim Toys

    Has anyone used chewable stim toys before? I have a habit of chewing on things so I've been looking at them. Specifically the ones that are necklaces, since they seem more discreet and not as easy to misplace. They come in different levels of toughness though, and there's a lot of different...

    I tried stimming: Spinning rings

    When the general public (which is my floppy term for people who know about the existence of autism but not too much about what it means) thinks about stimming in autism, most will probably come up with rocking, or hand flapping and the like, maybe also audible stims if they have ever been on a...

    Let's Talk about Stimming

    Hello guys, for those of you who don't know I'm a 46 year old Aspies HGV Driver. Only recently diagnosed.. For years I've done this thing where when driving on the motorway I have to bang my teeth together when passing a lamp post, road signs or between marker posts. I try and do it when half...

    Smallish stuffed animals

    I thought I'd make an inventory of all the types of smallish stuffed animals I know/can think of. Small, tiny stuffed animals have always been one of my favorite kinds, b/c I have always needed to carry at least one in my hand/backpack/pocket/shoulder bag in order to feel safe, calm, comfortable...

    I collect squishies and they're amazing. I use them as a stim toy and fidget toy. They're basically like a stress ball, but softer and sometimes scented! How I can describe what it feels like to squish a squishy, is it is like squishing a marshmellow. Without the stickiness. You can get...

    Cube Spinner?!

    Hey everyone, long time no see. Sorry for the long absence. I just found out that there is such thing as a Cube Spinner! Honestly they look cooler than the Fidget spinners. Does anyone have one? Have you heard of these? I'm thinking of getting one.

    Weighted blankets, do they work?

    I was thinking about investing in a weighted blanket for sleep and anxiety and so on, but I have no idea if they actually do what it says on the box. Has anybody had experience with weighted blankets? And are they actually worth the investment? They do seem to be pretty expensive. In short, tell...

    Fiddle Toy Stigma

    All over my facebook I am seeing people complain about fiddle cubes, spinners etc but why. Since fiddle toys have come on to the mainstream market they are getting a lot of bad press. I always have a fiddle toy such as a tangle or snake with me to stop me scratch my hands and keep my anxiety at...

    Seaplane rides and sensory issues

    My stepdad suggested that we all go for a seaplane ride this afternoon, and we all thought it would be fun - I did, too...we haven't been on one since we first started vacationing at this house my grandparents have in upstate New York about 12 or 13 years ago. When we got on the seaplane, I was...

    Getting defensive/embarrassed when asked about stim toys?

    Is it normal to get defensive when someone asks you about the stim toys you use? Not just when they're being disparaging and condescending about it, but also when they're just genuinely curious? I tend to get this way mostly when people ask me about the chewable silicone pendants I wear...my...
