Sorry if you've answered something like this before, but do you have any recommendations for stim toys that are on the subtle side and can preferably be kept on the person?
It’s fine! You can always check my ask tag to see what’s been answered, but I understand if you’re not able to flip through five pages of asks (and tags are harder to access for mobile users, although I keep the tags pages linked in my user description to make it easier).
You might like to look through this previous ask for ideas, as it discusses lanyard-clipable stim toys!
In addition, if you’re in a classroom or desk office setting, some of the stationery items mentioned in this ask might be workable as stealth toys.
I’m not sure what kind of toy you might be after (chewable, fidget, etc) so I’ll list everything I know of that’s both on-the-person portable and subtle/stealth. Jewellery is like to be your best option. This is a little harder for people like me who prefer not to present in ways socially-coded as feminine, but, thankfully, most of these things don’t have strong associations with a binary gender.
Stimtastic really does have some of the best offerings for teenagers and adults after subtle/stealth stim jewellery.
(Note: how stealth these ones are depends somewhat on how eclectic you are in presentation. I can attach a bead ring or a squishy to a belt loop and have no one remark on it, but I’m the kind of person psychologists politely call “quirky”.)
(Note: I’ve found the animal prickle fidget toys in multipacks in the party sections of dollar shops and Toys R Us, $4-$4.50 AUD. I’ve also found the mini prickle balls in multipacks in the party sections of dollar shops and Big W, $3-$5 AUD.)
Chewables that are closer to stealth: Chewable Dulcimer Necklace | Chewable Trapezoid Necklace | Chewable Doughnut Necklace. (These are the smaller or plainer chewable pendants, and I assure you, I’ve seen folks wearing non-silicone versions of these. I’ve also walked around various cities, stores and markets wearing the Braid Pendant and nobody has once thought anything of it if they don’t see it in my mouth. Oversized jewellery, especially for femme-leaning folks, is pretty fashionable.)
You can also find the wrist coil/telephone cord bracelets in cheap multipacks in everydollar store - look in the hair accessory section. Also available on ebay! If you’re not the kind of person who wears bracelets, I’ve seen them as lanyard clips in many dollar shops (link to listing on Banggood).
Chubuddyand Amazon also have chewable telephone cord bracelets, if you want something unremarkable that’s chewable and a fidget.
In short, there’s a lot of options, especially jewellery-wise. However, most of these sellers are based in the US, so if you’re an international stimmer, be prepared for international shipping rates and conversion fees. While there are therapy-focused stim toy stores internationally, most of them don’t offer a lot in the way of subtlety!
Good luck. If this doesn’t help you enough, please let me know. If there’s something I should have included and didn’t, please also let me know!

Hey guys, I know I’ve been MIA lately with my big move to Louisiana along with starting my clinical year of vet school, but I just wanted to share this story/reach out and ask for positive thoughts and prayers.
This little guy came into the clinic tonight when I was helping out in the ICU. He was found in the middle of a field and a Good Samaritan brought him in to the teaching hospital because he thought we could learn from him. The doctor on duty proclaimed that although he is perfectly healthy, his congenital deformity makes him pretty unadoptable (he was born with those spaghetti legs, they are not broken). So he stated that he would euthanize the kitten unless any of us wanted him. He said if they took it to a shelter, it would be euthanized on arrival because of his legs. I was interested because I didn’t want the kitten to die, so I asked him to let me think about it. He gave me until the end of his shift to decide, and said he wasn’t passing the kitten off to the doctor on the next shift; it needed to be adopted or he would euthanize it.
Now, I know that this doctor may sound like an uncaring asshole from the way I’m telling the story, but I can tell you that he was very nice and in fact does care about the animals under his care. However, in a hospital as big as the one I’m at, if you kept every bleeding heart kitten that came through the door, there wouldn’t be space for actual patients. Being a vet means making hard calls or we would all be on “Animal Hoarders”.
So I decided to give the kitten a chance. I named him Lieutenant Dan, got him some kitten food, and brought him home. He’s currently in a wire dog crate in my bathroom because he’s unvaccinated and I don’t want him near Charlie or my dog Beckett (I haven’t talked about him much because he was a family dog living with my parents but I brought him with me to Baton Rouge and he’s doing great here!)-
Here’s the crappy part of Lt Dan’s story. I suspect he may be incontinent. He has a bob tail that points towards his head, and between the funky legs and the short tail, there is a good chance the nerves to his bladder and/or poop region are messed up. He hasn’t pottied since I got him, so I don’t know for sure. It’s encouraging that his hind end is clean, but like I said, that short tail and bad leg combo is not encouraging.
So if he is incontinent, I will have to bring him back to euthanize him. There is no way I would be able to care for him for the next year with my schedule. It’s unfair for him to be in a diaper or in a cage for an entire year, especially when I’ll be gone for 12 hours or more at a time. And I can’t take on the commitment of a diapered cat for the rest of its life. It’s not like my schedule will slow down after I graduate vet school.
However, if he IS continent, he stays! I’ve already talked to one of the doctors about getting his hind legs amputated. He moves around fine with just his front legs, and I would probably get him a little wheel chair.
Let’s all keep our fingers crossed and hope that Lieutenant Dan can control his bowels and bladder. And if any of you think I’m a horrible witch for condemning him to death just for being unable to control when and where he eliminates, I’ll tell you that I am considering his quality of life. Yes it breaks my heart that he may have to die. I may have saved his life today only to watch him die on Monday and that sucks balls. But I wanted to give him a chance when nobody else would.
So I’m working at the Farmers Market and there are more cute lesbian couples than other kinds of couples and I really needed to write some Hartbig. This is my first time writing on Mobile so sorry if the layout of this is funky.
And now Grace really does giggle because if there’s anyone who knows Hannah Hart, from favorite foods, clothing preferences, and of course what’s underneath said clothing, it’s Grace. She hopes this will continue to be true for the rest of her life.
“No, but really, Grace. Let’s plant a garden,” Hannah proposes, entirely serious. “A victory garden! A Hartbig victory garden!” Blue eyes sparkle vividly as the shorter girl close to leaps with excitement. Grace is certain that Hannah could tell her all about the world war and how it’s the historical context behind ‘victory garden.’ She definitely will not give her girlfriend the chance.
“I think we should get some of that asparagus for dinner. It looks delicious.”
Hannah finally unhands the flowers and simply says, “and who is actually going to cook it?”
“We can have Mamrie over,” Grace quickly retorts, with a bit of a smirk playing at her lips.
Hannah thinks that in such an event, they’d need to add a trip to the liquor store to today’s errands. It’s stupid, she thinks, the way that she values doing this little stuff with Grace, the way that adding an extra stop to today’s adventures makes her heart swell. Grace’s ability to melt Hannah into a puppy is simply unparalleled. She’d have things no other way.
Grace buys not only the asparagus, but also peaches, sweet corn, and multi-colored carrots, which she was previously unaware existed. When they walk away from the produce stand, maybe the sixth one they’ve encountered this morning, they stumble upon a place selling tamales. They both skipped breakfast, save for Hannah, who had four bites of yogurt. When she doesn’t eat immediately after waking up, Grace considers Hannah to be ‘unbearable.’ They order some Mexican food and are very thankful to be holding a meal as they walk toward the picnic tables.
“Grace, are you staring at another girl right now?” Hannah sees a girl, who is attractive enough to be mistaken for Tegan Quin, slightly ahead of them.
“Jealous?” Grace asks, smirking heavily with her brown eyes. Hannah rolls blue ones as she pushes the brunette playfully. Grace sticks her tongue out and now they’re just laughing, unable to stop. People stare but neither woman notices, as they are far more interested in each other. Grace never saw herself feeling like this with someone. She’s had other relationships, but they were always more of a distraction than a priority.
Suddenly Hannah is Grace’s priority, which feels as lovely as it does terrifying. Also completely worth it.
They continue to walk towards the seating area and pick a table slightly in the shade. It’s hot today. They sit and start on the tamales, which could probably benefit from some hot sauce, but are still delicious. Grace catches Hannah’s eye as they eat, and holds their gaze for a bit. It’s her favorite sight.
Hannah loves it even more. Each bite of tamale is satisfying, almost as much as the day in general. The blonde closes her eyes for a moment, savoring both. When she reopens them, allowing the world in once more, she sees Grace smiling.
“What are you smiling at over there, Smellbig?”
The brunette leans in and wraps her arms around Hannah. She captures her lips in her own, humming contentedly. Hannah pulls her closer as they almost forget where they are. Grace has no idea how Hannah can do that. Kissing more intensely, Grace moves her hands to Hannah’s little waist, which is lovely, as always. Before they are too consumed, Hannah pulls back slightly, only to whisper against pink lips “I just want you to know Gracie, that someday, I’m going to marry you.”
