Our hug pet is a unique and stylish weighted wrap around shoulder friend. It can provide a stabilizing balance when used during a therapy appointment. When quiet time is needed, this calming hugs option provides a different sensation for your loved one. It may be positioned on one or draped over both shoulders and used as a sleeping buddy.

It is portable to bring along on car rides and feels great to curl up on your lap. Each hug pet is made from durable denim. You are able to customize our hug friend with your choice of soothing stripes made from preminum luxurious fabric options. There is also a lengthy stripe along the back of our hug pet so you may choose the fabric that feels best.

Our two pound option is made of poly pellets and our four pound buddy has a combination of poly and steel pellets to create the needed deep touch pressure.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Weighted neck wraps or lap pads may help children improve their attention span, focus on tasks and stay in their seats longer. This deep touch pressure is calming to the nervous system. Lynn M. Hamilton states in her book, “Facing Autism, Giving parents reasons for hope and guidance for help” (2000), that a good sensory integration program can make a huge difference in a child’s functioning, not only during therapy but also at home and in school.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Order a few hug pets! Have a couple of each on hand for your therapy office or school so children may select their perfect companion. This stylish yet functional pet provides a unique sensory feeling while allowing the deep touch pressure to work as needed. Have fun and make your location distinctive.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Keep one at home, one at Grandma and Grandpa’s, and one in your car.
