Sharing our healing hugs with those in need

Before we launched Hugimals World, we piloted Hugimals in children’s hospitals around the country to unanimously positive feedback from clinicians about how quickly Hugimals were able to comfort children and families navigating a challenging time. We're passionate about continuing to work with hospitals and nonprofits. Currently, Hugimals World's products are providing comfort to victims of crimes and to kids in foster care.
