Her Favorite Stuffed Animal

My granddaughter loves Sam. I thought she might already have too many stuffed animals, but not so! Sam is now the favorite! I thought she would love him because he is so wonderful to hold with his weighted body.

Omg……Too Cute

I’ve bought the Sloth for children I look after who are going through divorce with their parents and need lots of cuddles and re-assurance. The huggimal is of beautiful quality and nicely presented.

First nights sleep in a long time

I bought the sloth yesterday, I am 27 and i have cptsd and chronic pain so i have a hard time falling asleep. I usually go to bed around midnight and then I just twist and turn until i finally fall asleep around 06-07 in the morning. Yesterday i put my lovely sloth on my chest and fell asleep within an hour! That never happens so I am happily surprised. I used to use a weighted blanket but it always started to fall off the bed after a while and it was way to heavy for me to lift. The sloth is much more easy for me to use and also a lot softer and cuter.

How to get this away from my cat…

I ordered the sloth and absolutely love it for so many reasons. I put Sam the Sloth beside me on the couch and my little white cat immediately took Sam as her new best friend. Sie curled up with him as we watch TV in the evenings. I love Sam but she loves him more. I think I need to order another one just for me!

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.
