Love these furry weighted friends

My partner and I bought two and they are so amazing! They definitely help with reducing anxiety and are great to cuddle at night!

Sammy Sloth his Best Relaxing Buddy

Ordered 2 Hugimals, 1 went to Minnesota to comfort a brain injured adult and the other one (Sam) to Illinois to hang with our almost 2 big boy Grandson. Sam stays at our house as Grandson here several days a week. Sammy can be carried around and is the best buddy to lay across him while watching his favorite truck & tractor shows. Seems to really calm him & he loves Sammy's hugs! Perfect size for hanging out. Not sleeping with him yet as boy takes up most of the crib. I'm sure he will once we transition to a toddler bed.I like him to cuddle as reminds me of baby days not so long ago.

Love him

So cute.

I'm an adult and bought this for myself. Lol. I love it. It's cute, it's soft, it's weighted and actually I sleep with it every night and it really helps my sleep. I also purchased one for my little niece who's like seven and she will be getting it for her birthday next month. I highly recommend these whether an adult or children.

This is everything they said it would be. It's so soft and feels like a real baby. Perfect size and weight. We have enjoyed it very much.

I was so looking forward to this arriving! The hugimal is truly amazing!! Love how it's weighted and it feels like hugging a newborn. We all love it at home, even my 2 year old daughter!

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.
