I'm USA based, so I don't know how far-reaching the craft store Michael's is, but I found a variety of slow-rising squishies for $1-3 dollars. It should be a fairly inexpensive stimulation for those on a budget who have access to this store!
Squishies! In an offline retailer!
I’ve said before, I think, how odd it is that squishies hadn’t made it to offline stores, since … well, they’re awesome. I am so glad, though, that there’s now a source for folks who can’t purchase online, even if only US folks. If one store starts, usually the rest follow, so I consider this a good sign for international folks as well.
I couldn’t find a listing on their website. However, while I was searching, I did find an amazing selection of stimmy keychains, silicone spinners ($5 USD) and rainbow 7-point spinners (also $5 USD). I’ve shown the silicone spinners below:
[image description: three tri-shaped rounded-end spinners made from silicone with white circular central caps. The top-most spinner is light pink with streaks of white, yellow and blue; the left-hand spinner is green with streaks of blue, yellow and turquoise, and the right-hand spinner is light blue with streaks of red and purple. All three have a mottled, marbled effect.]
Note: I wouldn’t recommend chewing on the silicone spinner. There’s no listing about safety information, meaning the silicone could contain BPA-containing dyes. This is for folks who like the tactile feel of silicone, not for folks who want to spin and chew.
Thank you so much for letting us know, @afrostycatblr!
