Manimo Weighted Animals provide proprioceptive input and a soothing sensory effect for kids and adults! Due to the weight, deep pressure is applied on the body part where the animal is placed (around shoulders, on the back, on knees, etc) - soothing the nervous system - much like using a weighted blanket! The soft patterned material is iridescent and really catches the light - ideally for kids and adults who seek visual sensory input. Our weighted animals are super cute and easy to take anywhere with you!
What are some of the benefits of using weighted animals?
- reduce motor restlessness
