When we checked weighted stuffies, this sloth was one of the web’s top picks. As one special ed teacher says, “There is something about the sloth that calms everyone almost instantaneously. I think it is the way that the weight is distributed and that it's meant for hugging.” The weight in the sloth’s arms has parents raving about its huggability, and its zippered pouch lets it double as a discreet backpack.
“I've seen each of my four kids (ages 2 to 11) snuggle up with it already. They have worn it or simply put it on top of themselves while they were relaxing watching TV,” says another parent. Kiddos who benefit from a hug buddy and from deep pressure, especially when anxious, will fall in love with this sloth. Plus, parents rave about Sloth Heavy Hugger; if you’re on the fence, read reviews on the site.
