Stim Stationery: Tactile Pens


Image Description: a rainbow-coloured collection of display folders with the spines facing out.

I’ve been wanting to write this blog post for ages, however, I’ve only just recently received all the featured items involved (waiting on delivery held up the process a fair bit).


Image Description: The background of the image is a navy blue couch with an alternating pattern of dark yellow fleur-de-lis pattern and a maroon-red pattern. The foreground focuses on a close-up image of a pen in the shape of a green cactus, with small green “spikes” jutting out of the pen. The pen also sits in an orange pot-like pen-stopper/pen-cap.

The foreground focuses on a close-up image of a pen in the shape of a green cactus, with small green “spikes” jutting out of the pen. The pen is laying on its side upon the couch. Beside it is an orange pot-like pen-stopper/pen-cap. It’s in a side-position so that the viewer can see inside it.

Store: Wish
Price: $4.45 + $5 for Shipping = $9.45

This item took ages to arrive in the mail, which you should probably keep in mind if you’re intending to give this item as a gift (Side Note: you can also get this item from Amazon as well).

I really like this item. It works well as a pen and as a stim toy. I’ve noticed that it’s quite popular online and it appears to be well-liked by people when I show it to them. I can easily see this as a popular item for office environments that allow pens. The only flaw I could think of the minimal packaging involved, other than that, happy to recommend.


Image Description: The background of the image is a navy blue couch with an alternating pattern of dark yellow fleur-de-lis pattern and a maroon-red pattern. The foreground focuses on a close-up image of three pens that resemble cacti (in three different shades of green). Each pen has a round flower at the top of the pen. From left to right, a mint green cactus pen with a red flower on top, leaf green cactus pen with a yellow flower on top, and a lime green cactus pen with a pink flower on top.

Store: Wish
Price: $2 + $3 for Shipping = $5

This item took a super long time to deliver, to the point where I cancelled the order, and ordered the same item again (this time from a different Wish merchant). On the plus side, the refund process for Wish was simple and worked well on this occasion.

Eventually, both orders of pens showed up and, just like the other cactus pen, packaging was minimal. Luckily there wasn’t any damage. The pens, while not as tactile as the previous cactus pen, have pleasant-feeling grooves in the main body of the pen.

I enjoy running my fingertips across it. I also adore the cute little flowers on top. As for usage, these pens are the fine-liner type, ironically, I don’t use fine-liners that often, so I’ll probably use these more as stealth stim toys instead.

The foreground of the image focuses on a textured pen that resembles an orange carrot with tiny green silicone-like leaves on the top of the pen.

As this item was given to me as a gift, I’m not sure what stores you can obtain them from, or how much they are. Putting that aside, I really like this pen, the body of it is super textured and feels great to run my fingertips over. Definitely happy to recommend.

The foreground of the image focuses on a smooth lilac-coloured pen with a textured purple and white butterfly ornament at the top of the pen.

This pen was also a gift, so I don’t know where you can get it from, or what the store price for it is. The pen is smooth and the butterfly, while having an interesting texture, appeared to be added on afterwards. To be honest, the end attachment does get in the way of clicking then pen on, so it’s a little impractical but it’s still a usable pen.

Well, that’s it for me, if readers have a favourite stimmy pen they’d like to mention, please feel free to do so in the comment section below.
