I don't sniff baby wipes but I do sniff my Neoprene shirt. It just has this special smell to it that I love. I also for some odd reason like the smell of WIndex.

RCM does some pretty weird things which I will let him mention.

My favorite stim toy would have to be my paper shredder!

Not really. I like smelling the cupboard under the sink lol

Oh, and paper money smells nice. It has a distinctive smell. The trouble is that apparently one in three notes in the UK has traces of cocaine on or something like that, so I don't know if it's a good idea or not.

Rubber can smell very nice too, but it's got to be a certain type or something or it doesn't quite 'hit the spot'.

I don't know if any of these would be considered stimming though.

I love the smell of paper money,

I like the smell of certain rubbers, NEOPRENE being the best! Tires are nice too, but only good tires, I know Goodyear tires have a distinct nice smell to them.

omg! I love our paper shredder at work. Not in the sense of it being a stim toy (I don't think I have one), but I just love shredding paper. For some reason, maybe a childish sillyness lol. However I can't do it for long because it is so noisy and my colleague is a grumpy cow lol

Ok EDIT omg I just realised after reading a few other posts from those love neoprene... I love suede. I love rubbing it! Does that mean it's stim thing? I don't know I am still very new to this stuff but I just love suede.

I have some cool and smooth stones that I like rubbing against my cheek and I also like smelling my fingers, especially after eating chicken.

I use my earmuffs for two things, and neither of them is to keep my ears warm! :xD: I got themto block out noise, but they're adjustable, so I love repetitively fiddling with the size of them. I also adore shredding paper.
I'm abnormal, just like everyone else.

I guess any of my needlework projects would be my stim toy. I love the feel of fibers, particularly cotton, and most needlework involves repetitive motion -- very stimmy! :mrgreen:
