Stim Toy Review: Galaxy Pig


Image Description: a blue-and-purple squishy object in the shape of a pig’s head. The ears, eyes, and snout are black and there are white specks of paint spattered all over the pig’s head to give the illusion of stars. The pig’s head is resting on top of a red-and-yellow swirl-design couch

Review:
~Size Factor: The Galaxy Pig was smaller than I expected. I’ve seen the Galaxy Pig advertised alongside the Galaxy Apple, and I assumed that both items would be about the same size. The Galaxy Pig no bigger (possibly smaller) than your average stress ball and easily fits into the palm of my hand. This is a good thing if you’re interested in a small squishable stim to add to a Stim Toy Bag/Stim Toy Case.

~Attachment: Unfortunately, the Galaxy Pig I bought doesn’t come with attachments, which could make this an easily misplaced stim toy for those who are prone to losing things. This is kind of irritating to me, not just because I am someone who loses things all the time, but also because some galaxy-toy manufacturers went to the effort of making an attachment for the Galaxy Poop item but didn’t bother for the Galaxy Pig item (I can’t figure why they would do it for one and not the other).

~Scent Factor: When my item arrived, it gave off a very strong plastic and fruity smell, I had to air this toy out for a few days (almost a week) before I felt comfortable handling it.

Overall, apart from the long delivery wait, I quite like it. It’s very squishable, it’s super cute, and I love the Galaxy-style colour-scheme.
