Ollie is a therapeutic Octopus who is perfect for all children including our sensory and anxious friends. He is lovingly infused with French lavender to encourage relaxation. His soft texture and weighted body is perfect for supporting regulation, reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality. He's there for you to hold you, calm you, heal you with soft snuggles. Heat him up, cool her down, give his lavender body a cuddle. His weighted padding is perfect for restoration, relaxation, and reducing anxiety, improving sleep quality, enhancing focus, and calming you down quietly.

Sensory Weighted Animals are a perfect addition to a child's "toolbox" of tools to support regulation. Weighted products provide proprioceptive input to the body; similar to the feeling of a hug. Proprioception is our bodies awareness of position and movement. Muscles and joints detect proprioceptive input when we push, pull, bend and stretch. Proprioceptive input has a calming and organising impact on the central nervous system and is therefore important in supporting regulation, focus and attention. 

Ollie the weighted octopus is soft, loveable, portable and easily washable. Because of his cute appearance, he allows children to receive proprioceptive input without feeling different. 

It is recommended weighted animals be approximately 10% of a child's weight. 

Specifications: 1.8 kg's, 18 x 22 x 31 cm

Please note that while Ollie The Weighted Octopus is soft and cuddly, he is also a special toy that requires gentle care. To ensure his longevity and safety, we recommend that children handle Ollie with care and that he is not subjected to rough play or washing. While we strive to create toys that are both durable and lovable, we cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur due to improper use.
