SUPPORTING YOUR CHILD'S NEEDS WITH A FUN STUFFED ANIMAL
Does your child have a hard time staying calm at school or in the car? Are you always looking for toys that will effectively support your child's needs? The 5 lb weighted lap animal is the perfect companion for your sensory seeker!
The science supporting weighted objects like our sensory weighted stuffed animal is called deep touch pressure (the same benefit as a weighted blanket.). Deep touch pressure helps to decrease nervous system activity which encourages a feeling of calm and relaxation.
The weight takes advantage of the calming effects of deep pressure therapy. The extremely soft fabric of the pound puppy stuffed animal gives a great soft sensory surface for them to explore while relaxing.
If your child could use extra help in sitting calmly, then they will benefit from a weighted stuffed animal. Add the weighted dog to your sensory toolbox and give your child the sense of calm they deserve (and the sense of calm you deserve as well!).
