Hugimals Dog

Wonderful gift for my grandson who is six after we had to euthanize his dog. We had his dog cremated & placed in a lovely carved box which they keep on the mantle with mementos. My grandson named his Hugimal ROXY! Always keeps Roxy nearby. He held Roxy up by the mantle & told his dog that he got his gift. What a sweet moment! The Hugimal is soft, cuddly & being the best hug & comfort! Thank you for creating Hugimals!

Got Charlie for my granddaughters’ 18th birthday and this is her first year in college in Colorado away from Hawaii. She’s so happy!

Love him

I’ve been struggling with bad anxiety and maybe Alittle bit of depression for awhile now. This definitely helps me so much, when I’m either laying on the couch, or going to bed. I’m so happy with ordering one!!!!

Daughter loves it

My daughter loves it and keeps it in her office next to her computer!

Perfect Buddy

I bought this for my niece and she loves her Hugimal, Charlie the dog! Perfectly weighted to provide comfort at night and during the day when stress arises.

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.
