She helps me sleep and my anxiety has gone down a lot

I Love This

I was searching for a comfort stuffed animal for a while, being someone who struggles with mental health and sleep, i came across a few and even bought two - but most focused on the actual weight more than the design and details that also come together with weight to provide comfort. I Found This company through tik tok and decided to buy Emory and what can i say, i am so so impressed!!!! She Is soft, weighted well in all the right places, easy to clean- designed beautifully and smartly too - The description Hugimals gives you also comforts you, since they take every person no matter age into consideration!! i’ve never felt more bonded and calm hugging a stuffed animal !! i’ve already recommended to a few people i know and again definitely would recommend to anybody who’s come across this website and is thinking about buying one! do it do it do it, lovely experience and worth it !!

Many thanks to everyone at hugimals for bringing this idea to life and also catering to a niche community that needed something like this most !

Gift for bestfriend who lost her mom

This gift was the sweetest gift I could have given to my best-friend. When she saw it she loved that it was blue and it was an elephant and then she hugged it and said she felt a pressure over her heart calming while hugging the elephant . This is absolutely an awesome gift.

Your Hugimal's Benefits

HELPS KIDS AND ADULTS FEEL CALM: Developed with doctors and therapists to lower stress and anxiety and increase calm in kids, teens, or adults. 

SCIENCE-BACKED COMFORT: Your Hugimal’s Deep Touch Pressure (weighted pressure) is research-supported to stimulate a relaxation response from the parasympathetic nervous system, lowering the stress hormone cortisol and boosting production of “calming” neurotransmitters oxytocin and dopamine.

USING YOUR HUGIMAL: When you snuggle up with your Hugimal on your lap, or lay with it on your tummy or chest, it becomes your secret weapon against stress and anxiety, helping you feel safe, grounded, calm and secure. Use in moments of anxiety like transitions, travel, bedtime — or anytime you could use a calming hug.

FOCUS AND CONCENTRATION: Weighted pressure can help with focus, making Hugimals great study or work buddies when placed on a lap (like a weighted lap pad but way more adorable!). 

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT TOOL: Hugimals’ neutral expressions are specifically designed to allow you to feel any emotion in a judgment-free zone (no forced smiles here.)

SENSORY BENEFITS: Hugimals’ extra-soft fabric provides a soothing tactile sensory experience, and their calming colors are inspired by the natural colors of river stones.

SELF-CARE FOR ALL: Unanimously positive reviews from our children's hospital pilot program show that Hugimals are "a fantastic source of both comfort and sensory support" for children. Our Gen Z and Millennial fans use Hugimals for self-care, stress relief and to help with sleep. They make great gifts!

REMOVABLE WEIGHT: Your Hugimal is weighted with the same non-toxic glass beading used in many weighted blankets, sewn into secure sections within a removable weighted inner body for added safety.

WASHABLE! (AND WE DON’T MEAN SPOT-CLEAN ONLY): The weighted inner body is fully removable, allowing for easy washing of outer plush. We recommend washing the outer plush in a cold, gentle cycle. Best to wash in a laundry bag. Then hang dry.

BLISSFUL, FULL-BODY HUGS: With their weight distributed throughout their head, body and limbs, you feel the soothing sensation of your Hugimal “hugging” you back.
