Comforting homework buddy!

Our Sloth just arrived and my daughter loves it! She is doing her homework with her sloth draped around her and she loves him already! My husband tried it out too and said “it’s strangely comforting”❤️
Amazing product!

Thank you!

The Hugimals I ordered came quickly and are adorable! They have such a nice comforting weight. What a great concept!

A hit!

I got this for my niece and she now takes it everywhere with her, so much so that her brother is jealous and wants one, too! She didn't even know it was to help with anxiety but naturally told me "it makes me feel calm."


Emory has been just what my daughter in law needs while going through a very stressful time. My son says she walks around with Emory on her chest and shoulder all the time. 😊

The gift that keeps on giving

Purchased for my elephant-loving daughter who needs an added amount of zen, Emory is amazing. From the quality to fulfilling its intended results we just can’t say enough. We just have to keep the rest of the family from spending too much time visiting Emory instead of us! So thankful we found you Hugimals!

Bought this for my friend who lost her baby

I bought this for my friend who lost her baby. She said she would hold her baby’s blanket, but it wasn’t enough, and when she received this hugimal it felt just like holding a baby.

Three Very Happy Grandkids!

I gave each of my grandkids ( ages 11,10,8) a Hugimal and they immediately hugged it and carried it with them while they opened other presents. The youngest pulled up a chair for her Elephant to sit with the family for Christmas Dinner. The next day she told me how she thought she wouldn’t be able to get to sleep, but she cuddled with her elephant and slept all night in her own bed! I think mommy wants one now, too!

College daughters love them!

I bought two for my college age daughters for Christmas. They absolutely love them and sleep with them at night. I think it is a great concept and everyone enjoys that feeling of getting a hug. Great product. Thank you.

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.
