FluffyWeight - weighted stuffed animal to calm meltdowns & anxiety

Soft, soothing and forever snuggable.

FluffyWeight weighted stuffed animals are naturally and therapeutically weighted without using plastic or glass beads to help calm anxiety, shorten sensory meltdowns, help with sleep and bring ALL the smiles.
Created by a mom. Backed by science. Easy to love.

Life's about to get calmer and cozier.

Using research-backed deep pressure touch, our products are weighted to specific, scientifically proven percentages to help make life feel more enjoyable for everyone.

(Nothing against regular stuffies, but when you go too light you lose the therapeutic benefits and end up with a run-of-the-mill toy.)

FluffyWeight is the only weighted plush that comes with backup fur "coats" that are interchangeable, removeable, and machine-washable.

Praise from Happy Customers

Couldn't be more pleased

Kids and adults alike love these in our house! They’re super soft and cuddly and just the right size. The colors are gorgeous. We couldn’t be more pleased with our FluffyWeights.

Calms Instantly

I am an occupational therapist and I know that weighted objects help to calm the nervous system, so I decided to get FluffyWeights for my 2 sons; one of whom has ADHD. From the moment I gave my boys their Fluffys they have been in love with them! They are so fuzzy and soft and their faces are so adorable. I started putting the Fluffys on the boys when they went to bed at night and it helped to calm them instantly. Now, they request their FluffyWeights every night and when they are feeling overwhelmed.

It totally works!

I have twin 8-year-old boys and life at our house can be rough. We got them each a FluffyWeight and it’s the first thing they reach for when they need to calm down. This product is AMAZING! It totally works!

Fantastic Company

My son loves his FluffyWeight Mini! It's a perfect size for him. What's more, the company went above and beyond in making sure my purchase experience was perfect. HIGHLY recommended.

Love it!

I absolutely love it. I am a person who has autism among other things and it really helps me calm down when situations can get too much for me sometimes. I would definitely recommend one to anyone.

We love our FluffyWeight!

We love our Fluffy Weight! Our 11-year-old daughter has slept with it each and EVERY night since she received it several months ago. We tried various weighted blankets & toys over the years…nothing compares to her beloved Fluffy Weight. I only wish we had discovered something this helpful (and adorable) sooner in our journey. The quality is exceptional - so soft and the perfect weight - not to mention it’s adorable. I have recommended to many friends and will continue to do so. Thank you!

Perfectly weighted

The fluffy weight is amazing. it's weighted perfectly, soft, and super cuddly. It's been helping a lot with my anxiety.

We love Fluffy

Last week we tried the fluffy weight with our 5 year old who has a hard time falling asleep. It definitely helped him fall asleep so much faster. Usually, once he notices I’m not next to him, he gets up at least 4 or 5 times asking for water, extra hugs etc. With the fluffy next to him, he was asleep within minutes and didn’t get up once. I didn’t even have to wait for him to almost be asleep this time. He was comforted by fluffy and stayed in his bed all night. Huge win

Very Helpful!!

This FluffyWeight is amazing! It came perfectly packaged, wonderful quality and I'm already sleeping better! Definitely works just as well for adults as it does for kids. A worthwhile investment.

Exactly what they needed

My 8 and 11 year old loved them immediately! They have both been having a hard time regulating their emotions this past year with online learning and so much uncertainty. FluffyWeight is exactly what they needed!

How is FluffyWeight Different?

Backed by science. Proven to work. Easy to love.


FluffyWeight wasn't born in a stuffy corporate board meeting to "fill a gap in the market." It came from one mom's love for her children and a desire to make things better for others with sensory needs.

Machine Washable

Our animal "coats" are removable and washable, so your child's favorite friend stays clean and fresh. We offer extra coats separately to have a backup or to mix & match animal styles.

Plastic Free

We invest in a premium, all-natural shredded latex filling. It's more expensive than standard plastic or glass beads used by others, but it makes for a safer, more huggable naturally heavy plush that lasts.

Kids and adults alike benefit from the calming effect of a hug. FluffyWeight is especially effective for people who are neurodiverse, have anxiety or are highly sensitive.
FluffyWeight was purpose-built to be the most soothing and effective weighted plush on the market. We use premium materials that make FluffyWeight the softest, fluffiest and most lovable choice--guaranteeing your child will actually want to use it. And we invested more in our design and manufacturing process to make sure FluffyWeight is both safe and durable. Our Fluffys are filled with shredded natural latex foam. It's more expensive than standard plastic poly-pellets, but it's so much more satisfying to hug it makes it worth it. As a plus, the latex is naturally resistant to dust, mold and other allergens. FluffyWeight was thoroughly lab-tested to met or exceeded all US toy safety standards. We also hired a safety expert to conduct additional assessments before making our product available to you. Lastly, we picked a manufacturer with a long track record for high quality. We included reinforced stitching and other features to ensure each FluffyWeight lasts a long time, even with significant use. We chose to do all of this because even though it is more expensive, the end result is a product that works great, is loveable enough to become a favorite, and made to go the distance. Exactly what our customers deserve!
Our original size FluffyWeight weighs 5.5 lbs, and our mini size is 3.0 lbs. It is engineered to be approximately 10% of bodyweight. This provides enough weight for effective deep pressure input, resulting in a calmer nervous system.
FluffyWeight is perfect for when kids are feeling hyper, anxious, nervous, sad, overwhelmed, having a big meltdown, or need to calm down before a good night's sleep. Cuddle it, toss it around, or keep it handy in a calm-down corner for when you need it. FluffyWeight's body is weighted to a therapeutic level of approx. 8-10% of bodyweight for children. A therapeutic weight will naturally reduce the stress hormone cortisol and increase the happy hormones serotonin and oxytocin.
We worked with a plush safety expert to ensure the FluffyWeight design is safe for children. Fluffyweight is lab-tested and certified to meet or exceed all US safety standards. Specifically, in compliance with US ASTM F963-17.
Most weighted therapy objects are made with small plastic or glass beads, both of which can pose a choking hazard. Fluffyweight is made without plastic, has no small external parts, and its interior is double lined for safety. The filler itself is made out of latex, which is a natural organic compound made from rubber trees.
In a recent study, 9 out of 10 parents reported having a significantly easier time settling their children down for bedtime using FluffyWeight. For younger children under 7, it is not recommended to sleep with weighted objects, but it can be successfully integrated into your child’s bedtime routine to introduce calming before sleep. Parents reported an average decrease of 35 minutes in the time it took to fall asleep using FluffyWeight.
Currently, we offer our original size turquoise cat and our newest addition, a golden puppy. Is there a style you'd like to see us make next? Send us a note and let us know!
While FluffyWeight and weighted blankets work using the same scientific principles, FluffyWeight is soft to cuddle and more fun for kids to play with. FluffyWeight doesn't grow overwhelmingly warm like many weighted blankets do either. This means they will be more likely to use FluffyWeight and have a greater chance to experience the calming benefits.
In a recent study, 9 out of 10 parents reported that meltdowns and anxious feelings were significantly easier to calm when using FluffyWeight. FluffyWeight can decrease the frequency and length of meltdowns by providing a safe way to experience the calming effects of weight.
FluffyWeight is currently available through our website and ships to the US and Canada. We plan to add more international shipping in the near future, including the European Union. If you have a special request, please reach out to us directly at fluff@fluffyweight.com.
