My Best Sleep Buddy

So glad my wife bought Charlie. After seeing how improved her sleep was as well as reduced anxiety I ordered Sam. I love him and have taken him out to visit our friends. He is the best for me to relax and fall asleep. When he’s on me I am out like a light can’t even remember nodding off. He is so much better than any drug. He is my drug. Thank you for creating the Hugimals

Such a great snuggler!

The minute I pulled Sam out of the box, I knew he would be my new best bedtime pal! Ruminating thoughts make it hard for me to fall asleep at night, and Sam does a great job helping me stay present and relax.

Best gift

I purchased Sammy the sloth for my daughter, who is away at college. This is her first birthday coming up that I won’t see her in person so I sent her Sammy to hug since I won’t be able to give her a hug. Her roommate, whose birthday happens to be the same day as hers, fell in love with Sammy, so I sent her Emery the elephant as a gift. They love them!!

Best stuffy ever

I bought Sammy because he was wicked cute, I love my weighted blanket, and because he weighs the same as my son did when he was born, 4lbs 5oz. He is so soft, cuddly, and comforting. I love that he is big enough to hug me and I can rest my head on his as a pillow. My son loves him too and sharing has been a bit of a struggle so I just ordered Charlie! I’m considering ordering Emory for his classroom school teacher next.

Love Sam! andEmory!

I have Sam and Emory in my office. If my client's aren't cradling them in an in person session, I have one or the other on my lab during a remote session. Calming for all!

Sloth for the Win

Love him so much. My kids started stealing him so I had to get them each one also. Needless to say, we are in Love

Best Hugger

I love the sloth so much, and it helps with my anxiety. He also helps me fall asleep when I am holding him. I highly recommend him.

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.
