Warmies - Weighted Stuffed Animals and Spa Products
Warmies are weighted lavender plush animals and spa gifts. They contain microwaveable flax and lavender to cozy your child or warm your muscles. They are therapeutic toys you can heat up in the microwave or cool down in the freezer. They are listed as one of Oprah's Favorite Things!
These weighted stuffed animals are plush toys that weigh significantly more than traditional stuffed animals (typically between 2 and 5 pounds.)
Certain studies suggest that heavy stuffed animals can initiate a relaxation response in children, which can help them with ADHD and anxiety.
Weighted stuffed animals are part of the Deep Pressure Simulation meta trend.
Approximately 10% of US children suffer from ADHD, whereas another 7% suffer from anxiety. And parents are increasingly becoming aware that deep pressure simulation is a natural treatment option.
