Calming friend Charlie

I ordered Charlie for my daughter's adult client. The client has a brain injury that renders her unable to eat by mouth, walk and has difficulty speaking. This wonderful young woman was excited to receive her "very own puppy" & Charlie sits with her during the day while sleeping next to her at night. During these dark, very cold winter months in Western Minnesota we hope Charlie brings her some joy! She smiled & greeted him out of the box with " He's Cute".

Hugi is a wonderful friend when you need one the most.

Grandson just loves it!

Nothing like it

I have Autism and anxiety, i get overwhelmed in new and crowded places and have trouble sleeping. I just couldn't find a good heavy enough weighted animal until now. This dog comes with me everywhere, i mean EVERYWHERE, even in public, and i am an adult. He's always on my person, weather on my lap, in one arm, both arms or on my chest he's always there for me. I love that Hugimals are unscented because scents, espically lavender, give me a headache, so unfoutenly Warmies didn't work for me (and weren't heavy enough) even tho they are cute. I also love the texture of the dog, very nice. I give Charlie a 10/10, and Autism approved :). they are a little pricy and i'd love more (can't afford more) but Definitely worth the price

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.
