Fiddle Fone

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!

Pros

  • 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

Cons

  • 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.

The Butters Hygienics – PMS Rescue with Sage, Epsom, and Evening Primrose

I was on the hunt for some more small businesses to work with when I got in contact with The Butters. They asked which product I was interested in reviewing. After telling them that I have PCOS, they recommended me trying the PMS Rescue Cream, and it was better than I could have imagined!

PMS Rescue is hand made using all vegan ingredients. There are an abundance luxurious oils like coconut, soy, and grape seed. To make things even softer, they add in aloe and shea. There are many other incredible ingredients, but to make this the PMS Rescue, they add Epsom Salt, Peppermint, Neem, Evening Primrose, Clary Sage, and Lemongrass.

When I used this, I had some back pain and cramps. When I went to sleep, I rubbed this all over my lower back and pelvic area. The smell of this cream lulled me right to sleep and I slept amazing! I woke up feeling refreshed and my skin had never felt better.

Unfortunately, there is one big negative to this product. Since all the materials and ingredients are natural, with no added chemicals, the smell that I woke up to the next morning was not entirely pleasant. I’m not sure why or what happened. When using this cream specifically, make sure you’re able to continually rub it in, cover it with another cream, and/or wash it off before letting it sit on you for an extremely extended period of time.

Even with the not so pleasant morning after smell, after trying this product, you can bet your moisturized behind that I will soon be stocking my home with as many Butters products that I can. I love supporting small businesses even more so when all of the products are hand made! There is so much love put into every single bottle. Please, try The Butters for yourself!
