Weighted Monkey Sensory Stuffed Animal Toy 2.5kg
Sensory Weighted Animal is a perfect addition to a child's "toolbox" of tools to support regulation. Weighted products provide proprioceptive input to the body. 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.
These gorgeous weighted toys are soft, loveable, portable and easily washable. They are non-invasive, allowing children to receive proprioceptive input without feeling different. They are available in 2.5kg.
It is recommended weighted animals be approximately 10% of a child's weight.
This product is recommended:
- To support regulation of behaviour and emotions by calming the nervous system
- To increase proprioceptive input the body receives
- To support sleep
- To foster imaginary play
- For 3+ years and 25+ kg's
Dimensions: approximately 45cm (H) x 25cm (W)
