Weighted gray Super soft plush Description: Our Weighted TEDDY stuffed animal is designed to provide comfort and reduce stress and anxiety. This 8-inch plushie is made with soft, durable fabric and filled with weighted beads to provide a gentle, calming pressure. The design enables your child to use the bear as a cuddly companion to ease their worries.
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.
Item can be popped in the microwave for a minute to heat up.
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.
