When I saw the Fiddle Fone on the Humango Toys website I was obssessed! I immediately reached out to the owner and asked if it would be at all possible to review it. I told him that I have autism and the idea of using the Fiddle Fone as a stim toy was very exciting.
Once I got the toy, the love was real. I used it for hours and it did exactly what I thought it would. The smell and the sensation of the wood was intoxicating. I had a blast (see below for some stim examples). I loved using it for its intended purpose as well, to replace the endless scroll on our phones.
Overall, it was a great product to test, with the possible future issues of cleanliness aside. I now keep this toy permanently next to me to keep me focused and to let me stim when I need to, it’s wonderful. Please, support this small business and get your own Fiddle Fone today!
- Can use it for its original intention, to distract yourself when you put your phone down.
- Works as a stim toy (rolling the ball, flipping it in your hand, and jiggling it) (see gifs)
- Smells WONDERFUL
- Local (pdx) small business
- Worried about cleanliness. It’s stained, but it’s basically raw wood, so using it a lot (especially the roller ball) could lead to gunk build up, especially in the roller chamber, since you cant remove the ball to clean it. I COMPLETELY understand that this isn’t made for extreme use, but for the use that I am using it for, these are my worries.
