Love Charlie

I was so tempted to buy several Hugimals but decided to start with Charlie the dog. He is adorable and the weight of him is so comforting. My 80 yr old mother held Charlie once and bought Emory the elephant for herself. :-)


Love, love ,love my Quinn Koala

Hugimals really hug

This was for my mother in law. She had a stroke and lives in assisted care. She would really like a baby to hold, but that’s not gonna happen unless there’s a star in the east. So…hugimals. She loves it. Loves the weight of it. She even sleeps with it. It was the perfect gift for her.

5 Stars

I gifted Charley the Puppy to my mother for comfort during her stay at the nursing home, and she truly enjoys holding him. It's a well-crafted gift. Thank you for creating such a meaningful product.

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.
