tangle-creations

So I decided I should try out a tangle toy, because I do actually fidgit a fair deal and feel it might be helpful in those ‘Oh shit I’m having a sensory overload moment’ in classes that have been going on lately and just generally hopefully something to focus on in times of nervousness/anxiety etc

I got mine from a UK based Amazon shop called The Learning Shop and it was very cheap and arrived quickly

What I like so far is the size, because it’s easy for me to stick in a pocket so it’s not as if it’s super conspicuous, and that I can quite easily manipulate it with one hand, and do things like keep it on my wrist or my thumb.

And how it’s very easy to manipulate back into it’s folded state. And how it doesn’t have a funky plastic smell on getting it out of the package, and how it’s a nice smooth plastic so you don’t get any weird texture

It’s not silent, as you’d probably work out, but it’s to me a fairly pleasant clacking sound, but I know if I use it in class it might be fairly noticeable just depends on how loud the class is.

Do you have any idea where I could get like. Spare/loose tangle pieces? I like the idea of a recycled, hodge podge kinda tangle but I'm having trouble finding anything like what I'm looking for.

As far as I’m aware, after Googling with ever more interesting search combinations, said resource does not exist. It should! It’d be amazing to buy a few spare links from Tangle Creations when you’ve cracked a connector, instead of buying a whole new Tangle just for spare parts (which is what I did to fix my travelling/on the go Tangle Jr, as I’m quite attached to it and the ability to do The Thing). Mattel used to offer this service for missing/broken Monster High doll parts, so why not with Tangles?

I also looked to see if I could find cheap second-hand Tangles, but I only found a few questionable listings that included information on different types of Tangles without specifying what Tangle you’d actually purchase…

The closest purchasable object (as in a hodge-podge Tangle, which sounds awesome) would be the Tangle Friendship Bracelet. There’s two kinds and several variations in terms of what pieces one receives (as the links are meant for trading): try Children’s Therapy Store for the older version and Tangle Creations for the newer/Snapz version. (Personally, I’d get the first, as it doesn’t have the circular pieces.) I also found listings on Amazon (regular version, Snapz version) and Toys for Hands (listings in Dutch and English - this is a European-based webstore). Listings from the US, Canada and the UK are available on ebay. For this to work, you’ll need a Tangle as a base, because the bracelet won’t give you enough links to make a full Tangle.

The other, more expensive option, of course, is to buy a few multi-coloured/textured Tangles (Tangle Jr, Tangle Jr Textured) and go wild.

(I hold my links in a silicone jar-opener in order to be able to pull them apart; it stops my hands sliding off the plastic.)

Sadly, unless you happen to live close to a physical toy store that sells Tangles, this is like to be a little expensive to create.

I’m going to mention @tangleobsession who is more informed on Tangles than I’ll ever be; please add if you know more!

And here it is - the long awaited post about my rainbow mini relax tangle
First off I’m sorry it took me so long to post about it, I hardly ever have the spoons to make my own posts
Anyway, I was looking at fidget toys on eBay just after Christmas when I found this gem. I haven’t seen it before except once in a stim toy collection post somewhere on this blog from the past month
The tangle is slightly smaller than the relax therapy, it’s more like a regular tangle jr with rubber. The bumps are on it are lower too, almost unnoticeable
There’s 3 white links that don’t have the bumps, 1 has the tangle logo and the other 2 says NBC universal (which I failed to capture in the photo). It came with a little pamphlet about the tangle and troubleshooting
The tangle appears to be from some point in the past when NBC teamed up with tangle for mental health week. The eBay seller only had one, and like I said I’ve only seen one other one and I have yet to see it be sold anywhere else

[image description: an assortment of Tangles arranged on a quilt cover featuring the black silhouette of a tree and branches against a stylised night sky backdrop–dark blue dappled with white blotches for stars.]

Tangles

[Image description: A jewelry holder shaped like a tree is covered in tangles sitting on a three-drawer plastic bin high up over the viewer. Behind the tree is a picture of an artistically drawn bird on four panels. In the second picture, the tree has been brought to the floor and is sitting on a blue ombré rug. There is a hardwood floor, and some books stacked in the background. The third picture shows a top view of the tangle tree]

With the exception of my Tangle Orignal Textured Tangle (which is very large. Almost 2 feet extended!), this is my Tangle collection. Many of these are variations on the Tangle Jr.

On the tree, we have:

(Red, pink, blue and clear, top branch) Tangle Jr. Textured

(Blue, purple, yellow, green, near the top) Original Tangle Jr.

(White, with splotches, near the top) Tangle Jr. Artists Collection.

(Translucent green, mid tree) Tangle Jr. Translucent

(Shiny Gold, mid tree) Tangle Jr. Metallics.

(Pink, magenta, purple, mid tree near the back) Original Tangle Jr.

(Blue, green, white, covered in nubby silicon, near the back) Tangle Relax

(Translucent blue, larger, near the mid bottom back) Translucent Tangle Jumbo

(Blue, green, Purple, covered in nubby silicon, bottom back) Tangle Therapy

(Blue, light blue, yellow, green red, near the bottom front right) Tangle Jr. Fuzzy

(Larger red, yellow, green, purple, bottom front right) Tangle Jumbo

(Textured purple, front bottom middle) Tangle Jr. Totally Textured Metallics

(Clear, red, light green, translucent green, translucent orange, translucent blue, mid bottom front) Tangle Glow DNA

(Blue, red, yellow, orange, covered in “hair”, mid bottom left) Tangle Jr. Hairy.

I’m sure everybody has heard of Tangles by now, so I won’t be doing an in-depth review.

Most Tangles range from $4-$20USD depending on where they come from and what they are. A larger tangle (like the original textured one not pictured) can be $20USD or greater. Most basic Tangles are much less expensive.

Tangles can be purchased in many places, from Amazon, Ebay, and of course, Tangle Creations (where 90% of Tangles come from).

My particular collection comes mostly from Amazon, where one can find bundles of Tangles for varying prices. Some of these are from Office Playground (closed). At least one of these tangles (the Glow DNA) has been discontinued, and is hard to find.

Overall, tangles are something I believe every stimmer needs. Fun for everyone!

Translucent Glow in the Dark Tangle Jrs - eBay, $2.50 USD.

Item has free standard international shipping.

I paid $1.98 USD each for these, but the seller has relisted at a higher price.

There’s been a great many listings for the translucent GitD Tangle Jr knock-offs peppering eBay, so I thought it would be worth my while to order a couple and see how they work as a translucent Tangle Jr alternative.

I’ve noticed, in my foray into all things imitation Tangle, that the Tangle fakes that arrive in the clear-and-yellow plastic packaging with “Toy” on the top of the bag have easily been of better quality, and this holds true here as well. (Since it’s hard to know what you’re getting before it arrives, this isn’t all that helpful an observation when it comes to weighing up eBay auctions.) It’s always a fabulous thing to get a new fake Tangle that moves smoothly and holds a coil without my having to lubricate or modify, and these Tangles do both without any problems.

They’re much easier to manipulate than the solid white GitD Tangle Jr fakes, and I absolutely recommend these for people who cannot use a stiff Tangle.

They did arrive with a faint oily coating, something I’ve never before experienced with a Tangle, but a quick dunk in the sink and a wash with liquid handsoap fixed that. It’s so easy to remove that I don’t consider it a problem.

The bottom rose pink Tangle in the second photo above is my deflocked fake Tangle Jr Fuzzy. The Tangles are absolutely identical, right down to the fine scratches on the the surface and the slightly cloudy translucent plastic. People who are buying the rose pink flocked Tangles to deflock in the quest for a translucent Tangle can simply buy these instead.

The third photo shows the GitD fakes compared to my blue translucent fake. As you can see, the GitD fakes are more opaque, due to many faint scratches in the surface of the Tangle. They’re just not as translucent, which may be a problem for some stimmers. The randomness of buying fakes online, though, means that getting a Tangle like my blue one above is quite difficult, so stimmers after translucence might choose to buy the GitD Tangles anyway.

The glow in the dark capability is nothing like the Slinky Glo. (Nothing is. The Glo is in a class of its own when it comes to glow in the dark.) They need to be put under a strong light for a few minutes before lights out for best effect, or exposed to light for a long period of time. The chartreuse/yellow has a green tinge, and glows a fair bit brighter, whereas the pink has a dull yellow tinge that appears more muted. Both glow for a good long while after dark, to the extent that I have to tuck them behind my pillow so the glow doesn’t keep me awake.

For cheap, GitD knock-offs that glow, move smoothly and hold a coil, I absolutely have to recommend these. Until Tangle Creations or Zuru give us a branded GitD Tangle Jr, I think these are a more than suitable substitute. They’re a little less nice on the translucence front, but at least buyers know they will be a cloudy type of translucent.

I’ll also say that I’ve bought two different Tangle lots from this seller and have been happy both times; the second time they sent me an email to advise of shipping and to contact them if I had any problems.

My reviews of similarly-packaged Tangle Jr fakes: Fuzzies, Galactic Artist’s Collection, Rainbow Scales Artist’s Collection.

Trip and Fall in Love

Read on |AO3| or |FF.NET|   ~ 4.3K

For: @raitoackerman 

Prompt: AU in which Eren is a shy and clumsy model, and annoys his photographer Levi who doesn’t want to admit that Eren is actually freaking cute when he trips over cables. They’re hitting a bar after a shoot one day, and a drunk Eren confesses that he thinks Levi’s really hot and that’s why he’s always bumping into stuff during shoots - well that, and the fact that he’s pretty blind, but thinks his glasses don’t make him cute at all.

Many thanks to my beta reader, she made this so much better

Sambucky headcanons because I’m in hell

(I got really carried away with this I’m so sorry)

- Sam always comes up with the most elaborate, well constructed insults and Bucky has yet to match him with a good comeback.

- He has been known to message Sam with a comeback days after the argument. So far the record is 8 days. 

- Despite insisting that Sam is “a punk who should respect his elders”, Bucky shows up on his doorstep fairly regularly to get away from Steve and his bullshit for a little while.

- Despite insisting that Bucky is “a lame old man who should get to thinking about retirement”, he always lets him in and they spend hours talking about their time in the army and all Steve’s ridiculous antics. 

- Even though Bucky would never admit it, he prefers being in Sam’s company most of the time. He’s one of the few people to treat him like a normal person instead of acting like he’s made of glass all the time, and it helps him feel a little less broken. 

- Whenever Sam makes a pop culture reference that Bucky doesn’t understand, it always results in them sitting down and marathoning whichever movie or TV show it came from. 

- The fact that Sam slowly begins making more and more pop culture references is entirely coincidental shut up Natasha

- Since getting back Bucky spends a lot of time just sitting on his own getting lost in his own thoughts, sometimes with some nasty results, so Sam takes it upon himself to find that sad old grandpa a hobby. 

- When he suggested knitting it was supposed to just be another old man joke, but it turns out they both enjoy it. It takes Bucky longer to get the hang of it, but Sam still uses his first tangled creation as a scarf for Redwing. 

- Whenever Steve goes on missions with Nat or Clint, Bucky will spend the night at Sam’s because he hates being on his own at night. 

- Sam always comes to check on him because he knows Bucky still gets nightmares sometimes, and they’ll stay up until the morning (or until Bucky falls asleep) talking about the last movie they watched or making plans for the next day. 

- He doesn’t realise he’s in love with Bucky until one night as he’s getting up to leave, Bucky grabs his arm and asks him to stay longer, and Sam realises he never wants to leave him on his own again. 

- Bucky doesn’t realise until the next day, when he wakes up in Sam’s arms and feels safe for the first time in 70 years. 

- The romantic mood is utterly ruined when Sam is abruptly woken up by Bucky’s cold metal arm touching his skin. 

- He spends most of that day knitting a sleeve for Bucky’s arm, so the incident isn’t repeated the next time they spend the night together. 

 (https://www.change.org/p/tangle-creations-bring-back-glow-in-the-dark-tangles).  

An awesome “petition” was submitted to me. It’s a collection of people who are interested in buying the glow in the dark tangles.

This is a really good idea. By adding your name to the collection, Tangle Creations can see that and sizeable amount of people actually are interested in the glow-in-the-dark tangle. This is good proof to have when we email them claiming that alot of people want to buy this product.

Because this seems real now, comment on the petition page what kinds of colors, designs, or patterns you want on the new glow tangle, if Tangle Creations makes it. This will help the designers.

erisintheclouds  asked:

hey! i love ur blog a lot & i know u have some aussie mods so i was wondering if u could help me? do u know of any physical places to buy stim toys in aus? specifically tangles, squishies, chewies, & textured (bumpy/rigid) things? alternatively, do u have any good online shops/links that ship to aus?

Thank you so much for the compliment! Yes, we can absolutely help. Mod Rainbow and I (Mod K.A.) are both Aussie and invested in trying to make stim toys more accessible for Aussies - part of the reason I started this blog was because few people at the time were talking about places Aussies could buy stim toys that didn’t involve dollar conversion and international shipping costs.

We tag by country of toy origin (not countries to which toys ship) so you might wish to check out our Australia tag for locally-sourced toys. We’re now up to twenty pages of posts! Note that I am Victorian (regional Western Victoria, close to Melbourne) so that a lot of my resources tend to skew Victorian. Mod Rainbow is based in QLD, and I’ll ask them to add to the post if they have any local offline sources that I haven’t covered.

But, to answer your question more specifically, I’ll go by store and list the things they sell. Links below go to that store’s tag or a post featuring that item. Please note that it might be worth checking on the store’s tag, as all these stores stock many more stimmy things that don’t quite meet your brief for the toys you’re after - everything from bouncy balls and poppers to wooden puzzles and bubble wands.

Also note that dollar stores right now are stocking spinners and knock-off fidget cubes as well as the usual range of hedge balls/hedge creatures, bouncy balls and knock-off slinkies. There’s lots of things available in the toy, stationery and party sections, often for inexpensive prices.

First, offline (or offline and webstore) Australian stores:

Toyworld

(Store locations: Australia-wide, mostly on the East Coast.)

Mind Games

(Store locations: Victoria, Tasmania, QLD)

  • Tangles: $10 AUD for Tangle Jr and Tangle Jr Textured

Queen Victoria Market

(Located in the Melbourne CBD, Victoria.)

Daiso

(Store locations: Melbourne and Sydney.)

K-Mart

(Store locations: Australia-wide. Also allows online purchasing.)

Sensory Oasis for Kids

(North Altona, Melbourne. Also allows online purchasing with flat-rate shipping in Australia for $9.95 AUD.)

Smiggle

(Store locations: Australia-wide. Some items for sale online.)

  • Mini Snake Puzzle: $7 AUD (often on sale at 2 for $7 AUD)
  • Large Snake Puzzle: $14 AUD (often on sale for $7 AUD
  • Serpent Puzzle: $14 AUD (often on sale for $7 AUD. Note: not available online, but I have still seen these available in offline stores).

Kidstuff

(Store locations: Australia wide, mostly on the East Coast.)

Second, Australia-based webstores:

Sister Sensory

Source for: Chewables, Tangles, Fidgets

No shipping price listed on their website, so it seems they calculate based on weight.

The Therapy Store

Source for: Chewables, Tangles, Fidgets

No shipping price listed on their website, so it seems they calculate based on weight. 

Skillbuilders

Source for: Chewables, Tangles, Fidgets

Shipping is calculated based on the value of your order. $0-$25 is $8.25 AUD shipping; $25-$50 is $14 AUD. I do not recommend this as a good way of determining shipping, since it’s possible via this metric to purchase two chew pendants, which are light, and pay $14 AUD to ship both when they’d both fit in Australia Post’s under 250 gram weight bracket.

Third, international sources:

Stimtastic

Source for: Chewables

Despite being located in the US, I really recommend Stimtastic as a source for chewables. This is because Australian stim toy/OT stores only tend to stock Chewigem and ARK Therapeutic chewables, which are usually priced around $20-$22 AUD plus shipping (usually around $10 AUD … thanks, Australia Post). Stimtastic’s chewables are $10 USD or less, so even by the time you pay dollar conversion and international shipping, you’re still often saving money. Depending on the chewable in question, sometimes you can even get two items for the same price as one purchased here in Australia.

(Because of issues of weight, there’s other items that I wouldn’t purchase from Stimtastic and would try to source here in Australia instead, but the chewables are too well priced not to purchase from this store, even with international shipping. Plus the shipping is quick!)

Banggood

Source for: Squishies

Most things have free standard international shipping. Despite shipping from China, I’ve had everything I’ve purchased so far arrive in three weeks or less. There’s a range of squishies available here, from only a few dollars each to $10 AUD and more for the larger, higher quality squishies. Not paying shipping makes their offerings that much more affordable and I’ve had no problems with the items I’ve bought.

eBay

Source for: Squishies, Tangles, Spinners, Knock-off Fidget Cubes

A great many of these things also have free standard international shipping from China, Hong Kong, the Philippines. Please note that quality varies widely and most of these things (especially the cheaper free shipping options) are knock-offs. (Check out this post of mine about the knock-off eBay Tangles: they work just like a Tangle Creations-packaged Tangle, but they’re lighter, looser and clickier.) For stimmers without a lot of money, though, these things are well worth checking out, especially if you don’t mind something clickier and louder (fidget cubes particularly).

If you need more help with finding sources closer to your state, please let us know. I’ve probably forgotten something, but my wrist is starting to hurt so I’ll end this one here! Being Victorian, I have more resources than many other Australian stimmers, but availability varies so widely from state to state, at times it’s like being in another country. I know a lot of what I take for granted just isn’t available elsewhere.

anonymous asked:

Ah! Hello I don't know if you've answered an ask like this before (I didn't see one) but I'm some one who really loves clicks and metal tapping together but I also think a tangle will be really beneficial for me so are there any you recommend that are pretty cheap? I don't have much money but I could probably manage something $15 or cheaper thank you so much in advance I'm new to stim toys and getting an autistic screening soon so I'm feeling more self aware of my stims and sensory things

For $15, anon, we can get you a couple of different stim toys! If we go for the cheapest options, we can get you a few of them! There’s a few things I would definitely recommend for anyone after clicking and tapping (and good stimmy noises generally) and I’ll throw in a couple of DIYs at the end as well. This should get you started at the very least, and you can explore adding to this kit (be it by purchasing or by making things) over time. It’s surprising how quickly I went from having a couple of stim toys to having a couple of baskets of stim toys…

(I’ll also say that it’s really normal to have that self-aware stage when you’ve been diagnosed - be it professional or self - or discovered that autism is something with which you relate. My experience was that I’d spent my whole life suppressing so much about myself, and once I had a label for my difference, once I came online and found people both with the same experiences and the language for those experiences, I felt incredibly aware of this and how I moved for a long while. A year later, I’m back to not noticing how I’m rocking my knees while I type; stimming and touching has become more subconscious again, with the difference that I now reach for those baskets of toys more subconsciously and I’m so much less restrained in general sensory/texture seeking.)

Tangles

The cheapest option, no matter where you are, is ebay. (I’ve got my review here and a series of links here, but there’s many more listings here, often for $2 USD and under with free international shipping. (Folks may want to note that there’s now several listings for the glow in the dark Tangles for under $2 USD, too!) Please note that there is no real consensus as to whether these are legitimate, knock-offs, prototypes or something else: some people have found theirs to be identical to Tangle Creations packaged Tangles, while others (including two of us mods) have found them to feel cheaper - lighter, crackier, creakier, not quite right in ways hard to articulate. My feeling is that they’re knock-offs (and that this is indicative in the price) but I don’t actually know this for sure (that they use an older version of the Tangle logo makes it hard to tell). For you, anon, this might be the better Tangle to source, because I can tell you from my own experience that they crack and creak a lot more than a regular Tangle Jr, and at this price you can get a couple of them.

If you want a packaged Tangle, your best bet if you’re in the USA is Amazon or Fat Brain Toys (under $5 USD, $3.99 USD flat rate shipping). If you’re in Australia, try Toyworld stores (around $6 AUD each).

Fidget Cubes

Later on today I’m going to try and make a post about the knock-off cube I found in a local dollar shop. I’ll say this right now: it is clicky. Not just that it has buttons and switches to click, but it makes a loud plastic clicking noise when you use them. (It’s so noisy that I’d wish murder on the person using it beside me in the classroom.) In your case, anon, I’d go for the cheap version not only from pricing concerns but also because of the clicking noises they make. There’s a score of various ebay listings running anywhere from $1 to $5 with free international shipping in anybody’s currency and a few more listings on where to buy on this post.

Klixx Fidgets

This is basically a length of interlocking links that click when you move them. Tremendously clicky. There’s brand-name and imitation versions available - the imitations tend to be a few dollars cheaper. You can hear one being clicked in this video post by @yellows-stim-toy-hoarde.

Available on Stimtastic for $3.50 USD. The knock-off versions are called “Snap and Click” toys and there’s a Squishy Mart listing for $0.98 USD and on Children’s Therapy Store for $1.50 USD.

Twiddles

This is less clicky, in terms of volume, than my fidget cube, but it’s plastic, it’s scrunchy and it’s wonderfully stimmy to just crunch in your hand. It’s also the most expensive fidget here at $9.50 USD from Stimtastic and $12.99 AUD from Sensory Oasis for Kids. I’d be inclined to leave this one for later, simply due to the expense, as you can get multiples of the other toys in your budget. They are fabulous, though!

Snake Puzzles

This is another case, anon, where the cheaper the puzzle, the clickier and creakier it is. My Smiggle puzzles are mostly silent (exceptions being the glow in the dark ones, for some reason: the plastic feels more brittle) but my K-Mart puzzles (both small and large) click and creak as you rotate the triangular sections.

This is one of those odd items where I don’t have a good non-Australian supplier to recommend. K-Mart sells the mini puzzles for $1 AUD each, which I recommend as a super cheap creaky toy (although some of the covers over the triangular pieces like to pop free). There’s several larger ones on Amazon, but none are especially cheap. I’ve seen them on Banggood for $2.18 AUD with free international shipping, which might be your best bet.

Electronic Bubble Wrap

This is less clicky and more pushy with the sound of bubble wrap, but it might work for you if you really like pressing buttons. There’s a range of ebay listings here starting from $5.33 USD with free shipping.

Light Switches

Check out this post Mod Rainbow wrote a while back about finding cheap, unwired switches on ebay. If you’re after a switch to flick/click and you need something bigger than the switch on a fidget cube, here’s an option for under $1 USD with free shipping!

DIYs

- Clicky bottle/jar caps - think Snapple caps, jam jar lids, anything with a popper seal in the middle. You can reuse Snapple bottles for water or anything else so you’ve got a snap-cap bottle on you for stimming and drinking, making this pretty multifunctional!

- @diy-stims has posted this tutorial on making a DIY clicker toy: two bottle caps glued to the insides of a folded length of cardboard.

I think there’s enough here, anon, to get you started, and most of it is priced reasonably enough that you should be able to get a few different things on your budget. If anyone has any suggestions for cheap or DIY clicky toys that I’ve forgotten, please comment and I’ll add it to the post.

Good luck, anon, with both your assessment and your stimming adventures!

- Mod K.A.
