Anyone who can use the calming benefits of a hug!

Our customers span across all genders and range from young children to older adults. Many of our customers identify as neurodivergent, anxious or are simply seeking a natural boost to their mental health.
FluffyWeight was made to help manage big emotions.

Cuddle it, toss it around, or keep it handy in a calm-down corner for when you need it.

FluffyWeight's body is naturally 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.
Fluffyweight is a therapeutically weighted plush animal designed to calm the nervous system and help you fall asleep more easily.

For children under 7, it is not recommended to sleep with any heavy objects, but it can be integrated into your child’s bedtime routine to introduce calming before sleep.
While FluffyWeight and weighted blankets work using the same scientific principles, FluffyWeight is soft to cuddle and more fun for kids to play with. This means they will be more likely to use FluffyWeight and have a greater chance to experience the calming benefits. FluffyWeight doesn't get as hot as a weighted blanket, and is easier to travel with.
FluffyWeight comes in two sizes: Our original 5.5 pound stuffed animal, and our 3.0 pound mini size.

It is engineered to be approximately 10% of bodyweight. This provides enough weight for effective deep pressure input, scientifically proven to result in a calmer nervous system.
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.
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.

We invested extra into 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!
