An Autistic Stimming – Flying Glitter Discs


Hi!  So, continuing in my fun stim series I’ve been doing, I have some new fun and exciting stim tools.

So, these are Frisbees that David and I picked up at the dollar store for three dollars each, and they’re beautiful and glittery and light and fun, and you can just kind of keep them, you know, here and …

They are, of course, that change the pattern flippy glitter that everybody loves this stuff.  I’m so excited that this stuff is everywhere.  Where was this in my childhood?  This stuff is so cool.  And this one has a really smooth feeling, like I just need to rub it.

It’s smooth.  This fabric is really smooth.  Sometimes I like to rub smooth things on my face, and this one – the sequins are so small and packed together so tightly, if actually feels really good on my fingers.

David pointed this out, that this one doesn’t feel the same.  This one, I think, is beautiful.  This one is my favorite.  I like – visually, this is just gorgeous.  How do I do it?  Oh, this way.  It’s so cool.  It’s just … is that not just awesome?

I think this one is so pretty.  I think it’s gorgeous.  Bye-bye.  Hello.  But this one is really scratchy on your hand.  But, isn’t that just so pretty?

So, I mean, have you ever seen this glittery stuff?  I think it’s all over pillows and so many, many things right now.  It’s really popular.  I’ve seen backpacks and purses.  I’ve seen a lot of stuff with this glitter.

Do you like this or does it bug you?  Some people don’t like it.  I love it.  Alrighty guys, I’ll talk to you next week.  Bye.
