@gothtistic-stims I found a tutorial for how to make those cube things!

wanna know what's the best?

•being cuddled while you hold a stuffed animal
•someone feeding you and them saying “here comes the airplane/train/etc!” while making the sound effects
•footie pajamas that cover your feet AND have hoods
•going to build-a-bear and making your own stuffed animal, naming it, and dressing it up
•new markers where the yellow one hasn’t been destroyed by the darkness (aka the black marker)
•walking through the toy aisles at stores and finding all these wonderful things you wanna get one day
•being able to pick out a candy after finishing up at the store
•going to see animated movies in theaters
•going to the playground and being pushed on the swings
•pillow and/or blanket forts!
•the breeze you get when you go down slides
•holding hands and swinging your arms at the same time
•those big hugs where you get picked up
•cute shaped foods (smiley fries, dino nuggets, spongebob mac n cheese, etc)
•eating food with themed utensils and plates!

FIDGET PAD (by WeFidget on Amazon.com)
DEMONSTRATION


pardon the lighting, as it was hard to find anywhere quiet to make the video. if you see me struggling, it’s not that it’s difficult to operate but it is difficult to show it on video with one hand.

i have a bunch of fidget cube knockoffs at this point and this one is my personal favorite. this is the fidget pad by WeFidget on Amazon.com sold by ZOND, so if you get it from a different company or seller or website, it may be different from my description.

FEATURES:
anything in brackets “[ ]” is my personal opinion and your experience may differ.

1. the joystick has a rounded top, not a flat one. here’s hoping it doesn’t become squeaky like certain other knockoffs. [i find it comfortable.]

2. two silent buttons and two loud clicky buttons. [these have a good feel of slight resistance to them, even the silent ones.]

3. two spinning “gears” that click. they resemble a combination lock. [i absolutely love this one.]

4. a silent roller with tiny bumps on it. there’s resistance when rolling it.

5. there’s a line of tactile bumps on one side of the pad. very stimulating.

6. there’s a “paddle” on one side that you can push and it will snap back into place.

7. loud clicky rocker switch. it’s large, round, and slightly concave. [very comfortable.]

8. a spinner. it has no resistance, in fact, it’s very loose - but won’t just stop in place when you spin it, it has some momentum.

9. two holes for a small lanyard, which came included for mine.

overall, i feel that this fidget pad is well thought out and well designed. it doesn’t feel cheaply made, but its durability is to be seen. the exterior is a velvety, matte plastic while the features are more of a plain shiny plastic.

also, you can fidget with this with two hands as opposed to just one. for me, it’s much more comfortable in the hand than a smaller fidget cube.

i recommend it. if you have any questions about this specific product, send me an ask. this fidget pad goes for around 12-14$.
