Best New Friends

My grandchildren love their best new friends!

Our Grand Kids Love Them

We gave them to four grand children at Christmas and they love them.

Love them! With a note

My fiancé and I received these as Christmas gifts and we both love them! He got the sloth and I got the elephant. We like to sleep with them and don't go a night without them anymore. However, my one major note about the elephant hugimal is how the nose sticks out. As a person who is sensitive to how things feel on my body, the trunk of the elephant pokes down into my chest and neck when I try to lay flat with it. A modified, flatter nose may be needed for the elephant as I had no issues with the sloth!

Not only are hugimals cuddly and cute, I truly feel it helps me sleep better and I am able to fall asleep on my back which is great as I usually sleep on my side.

Christmas gift. Loves it!

I bought this as a gift for someone who struggles with anxiety and has trouble sleeping. She loves her Sam the Sloth and said he really does help her sleep.

Sloth rocks!

The girls absolutely loved their Christmas Eve gift (Hugimal Sloth). After they opened them, they were inseparable for the rest of the evening. A ringing endorsement! A wonderful product.

Grandkid’s review

Now that Christmas is over I can give you my review. My 9,11,13 year old grandkids all love their animals. They were carrying them around all day and especially loved sleeping with them. I thought my 13 year old grandson would be offended that he got a “kid” toy, but he loved it. Everyone needs something to snuggle with at night.😊

Christmas Win

I bought 4 of these for gifts over Christmas and they won the hearts of the kids as they used them. They loved cuddling with them and holding them. Even the youngest would pull hers to where she was going to be and then lay down with it.

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.
