Our weighted plush animals come in a variety of weights and sizes.
They are hand stuffed with virgin hypoallergenic recycled fiber and hypoallergenic glass beads. The weight is distributed throughout the body minus the head. The head is stuffed with fiber only.
We do not use plastic pellets as they do not allow that soft cuddly feel when placed inside weighted animals. Our hypoallergenic glass beads allow for a much softer feel.
Weighted stuffed animals and weighted blankets work the same way a hug does -- it settles and calms the nervous system with deep pressure stimulation. When you use them, your brain releases serotonin and dopamine. Then as your breathing slows, your heart rate decreases, and you feel relief.
General guidelines suggest that weighted stuffed animals are no more than 10 percent of the user's body weight.
Not recommended for children under three years.
Plush animals are certified ASTM-F963 safe.
