OUR WEIGHTED HOT’N’COLD STUFFY IS RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WHO:
- Have sensory issues, as found in Sensory Process Disorder, ADD, ADHD, and the Autism Spectrum.
- Find weight, warmth, coolness or cuddling calming, self-regulating, and/or increases their ability to focus.
- Are overwhelmed by sensations in their environment.
- Have poor body awareness.
- Want a non-therapeutic stuffy to aid in regulation, especially if both weight and temperature change is needed.
- Would benefit from adding weight or temperature to their bedtime routine.
- 4 animal options: hippo, moose, penguin, puppy.
- 30 cm / 12 in. stuffy with a removable 1450 g/ 3 lb weight, and a removable water-based, non-toxic gel pack that stays warm up to 40 minutes.
- The weighted insert is double lined for durability.
- Because of the thickness of the fake fur, the stuffy has a gentle temperature change.
- Carrying a weighted stuffy, placing it on your lap when seated or on your chest when resting, can help with regulation.
- Stuffy should always be carried by holding the body. The weight places too much stress on the seams if carried by the head or limbs.
- Comes in its own ready-to-give gifting box.
- The gel pack should remain inside the stuffy when the stuffy is in use.
- Stuffy: 100% polyester
- Weight: Exterior: Nylon or polyester/cotton blend. Interior: steel shot.
- Instructions for Temperature Regulation
- To heat: Microwave: Remove gel pack from stuffy and place in a microwave for 15 seconds. Continue heating at 15 seconds increments until desired temperature is reached. Low-medium levels of heat recommended.
- Please note: Damage to the pack can result if it's allowed to overheat. Watch the pack carefully while heating. If it becomes enlarged (balloons) turn off the microwave and allow the gel pack to cool before handling.
- Hot Water: Place gel pack into a bowl or sink of hot water. Leave submerged in water for 8 minutes or until it reaches desired temperature.
- Caution: Do not overheat. Overheating can lead to gel pack bursting. Do not apply hot gel pack directly on skin. Keep hot gel pack inside stuffy unless heating. Keep hot gel pack out of the reach of children.
- To cool: Place gel pack and/or weight in freezer or refrigerator until desired temperature is reached.
Check stuffy and weight regularly for wear. Specifically, the gel pack for leaks, and the stuffy’s ‘attachment seams’ (where the head and limbs are attached to the body).
