I bought the slouth

It really does make you feel better and relax. Love the feeling you get when you hold and feel the light pressure it gives

Best Birthday present ever! 🦥

I bought Sam the sloth for my daughter’s 21st birthday. I gave it to a week earlier as she has college finals. She loves it, however, I need to buy another one because her boyfriend loves it too! Never too old for Sam the 🦥

Would recommend!

I got a Sam the sloth and he is great! The weight isn’t too much. It is so soft and I’m very thankful there was an option for something like this without a scent! I’m very allergic to most scents, so it’s nice to find a comfort stuffed animal without the smell!

Best purchase EVER!!!

I absolutely love my Sam the Sloth Hugimal! He helps me self regulate and decompress at the end of a long day. Getting hugged back is the best feeling! THANK YOU, HUGIMALS!

10/10 will be ordering more. Feels like holding a puppy or a baby. The material is very soft and helps with sensory overload

Can't get enough of Sam the Sloth!

I purchased an expensive weighted blanket years ago and sold it to a friend in under 24 hours because I was overheating and not finding the calm I expected from it. Getting a Hugimal was a game changer -- I can walk around with Sam the Sloth in my apartment, lay with it before I go to sleep and any moments of anxiety and stress -- it provides me with such a comfort. I am so grateful for this product and can't wait to share it with my friends.

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.
