Weighted Animals, partially filled with polyfil filling and weighted poly beads. 100% handmade and hand embroidered. Weighted animals are the most versatile of the weighted products because they are so easy to take with you on the go. Weighted animals allow your child to fidget while receiving sensory input. Carrying a weighted animal while transitioning to the next task provides sensory input to make that transition smooth. The main body of the animal is soft to be comforting while the dimples provide tactile input.
Although Weighted Animals don't work for everyone, the individuals who benefit the most also love to use other weighted products like weighted vests, and weighted blankets. With a weighted stuffed animal, you can have the sensory input but not have the medical look of many other weighted products out there! A weighted animal is literally the best fidget/ sensory tool you can buy.
We encourage you to use your Weighted Animal when participating in your proprioceptive / sensory activities. Toss your animal in the air, take it for a stroll, carry while dancing or carry in your backpack.
Weighted Animals can be machine washed with like colours in cold water. Be aware of agitators in washing machines as they are hard on fabric and can cause a tear. Tumble dry on VERY LOW HEAT with other items.
