Washable. Weighted stuffed animals are the most versatile of weighted therapy
products. They can sit in a child's lap to provide sensory input as well as
provide kids with a fidget. Carrying a weighted animal during transitions
provides sensory input and keeps hands occupied. Snuggling a weighted animal at
night provides calming input as well.
Weighted products have been shown to generate proprioceptive input on our
bodies. For many people, this input causes the brain to release
neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, among others. These
neurotransmitters released by the brain have naturally calming effects, which
have proven to be beneficial for people experiencing anxiety, stress, or
sensory processing issues. Although they do not work for everyone, the
individuals who benefit from deep pressure find weighted materials such as
vests, blankets, lap pillows and stuffed animals to be very helpful in calming
in the daytime hours and increasing sleep at night.
Weighted sensory stuffed animals are a great way to help your sensory seeking
child to feel calm, more relaxed and more focused. They can also be used for
heavy work sensory activities without it feeling like it’s therapy.
With weighted sensory items, the extra weight gives input to the body for kids
who have an under-responsive system, helping wake up the system as well give a
physical outlet for extra energy.
Use heavy work to help your child calm down and focus both at home and at
More often than not, your child will seek this input himself and now he has a
tool that doesn’t look medical or therapeutic.
