Lovable weighted stuffed animals for kids & adults that “hug you back” to lower stress, boost calm and help with sleep.
The calming hugs you've weighted for
Unlike traditional stuffed animals, Hugimals weight is distributed evenly throughout their body and limbs. This means that when you hold and cuddle with a Hugimal, you’ll feel like you’re receiving a full-body hug, which can be incredibly comforting and soothing.

Sharing our healing hugs with those in need
Before we launched Hugimals, we partnered with the Toy Foundation to pilot them in children’s hospitals around the country. The unanimously positive feedback from staffers — and photos of smiling kids — confirmed Hugimals were “a hit!” with families navigating a challenging time. We’re passionate about continuing to work with hospitals and nonprofits. Currently, Hugimals are also providing comfort to victims of crimes investigated by the FBI, and to children in foster care.
