Hi, I’m Frankie the Cat. 

I’m loyal, loving, and low-key — but I can be quite playful when the mood strikes! It may take me a moment to warm up to strangers, but I’ll always want to take a cuddly catnap with you.

Sammy is very cute and soft

Our daughter loves snuggles with Sammy when she feeling tense or fighting frustration. She will grab Sammy and we know to back off until she has a few minutes with Sammy and then comes to us. More calm and willing to listen and articulate her frustration. She has FAS and Autism these both affect her emotional state. She love Sammy. She also has Frankie, her cat sleeps with her nightly.

My 4th Order

These Hugimals are the BEST! I have gifted to my grandchildren and my elderly Mother. Most recently to my Cousin’s grandchild who was recently diagnosed at age 6 with Leukemia. Everyone loves them! Thank you!


My daughter loves elephants and is away in grad school. I can’t be there to hug her so I saw this and thought why not. She LOVES it and so do I!! I want my own now. I actually felt like I was holding her in my arms again. lol..

Excellent quality

My son really likes how soft and uniformly weighted his hugimal is. It has helped him get to sleep faster and support him when he feels sad.

Quinn and Charlie

I have two hugimals and I love them both. Quinn is a little softer and cushy than Charlie but they both hug the same.

He's the perfect size, and weight.

I love my hugimal, Sam

I bought Sam the Sloth and I adore him. He is so useful for my anxiety, but not only that he is just comforting to hold, sleep with, lay on my chest when I’m laying down. He is very soothing and probably one of the best things I’ve bought for my anxiety and overstimulation since my noise canceling headphones. My son loves him and also wants one, a Frankie the Cat, and my friend tried him and also loves him and wants a Harper the Pig. Everyone who holds or cuddles my Sam loves him dearly and feels his calming effects. Could not recommend more highly!


Can not wait to give this to my daughter for Christmas. So lovable I could keep it for myself. She'll love it so much.

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.
