Weighted products may be suggested by an Occupational Therapist as part of a sensory diet to assist with sensory regulation to focus on a task, relaxation and to calm down ready to sleep. Sensory Matters Weighted Animals are filled with Poly Pellets or a mixture of Poly/Stainless Steel pellets and this design has a removable and secure double stitched/double layered weighted insert, which can be machine washed. Alongside the benefit of weight, there is also the extra sensory input of the lusciously soft fabric as well as the fact that they don't look 'clinical'... they are just regular looking soft toys.
These gorgeous Weighted Animals can be very helpful in the classroom/kinder or child care facilities and are used regularly by those with SPD, ASD, ADHD and anxiety. They are seriously soooo soft and loveable!
