Manimo – weighted plush animal

Manimo weighted animals are loving companion pets! They are children’s comforting companion and valuable partners for parents.

   

Manimo is the weighted plush animal that helps focus and calm. These weighted animals are recommended for all children, but were designed specifically for children with ADD, ADHD, ASD, anxiety or other disorders. “Providing numerous benefits, manimo weighted animals help children develop their imagination and reach their full potential. And they are always happy to get a big hug.”

If we are extra tired or are feeling any sort of anxiety our weighted companion, which we named “Speckles” helps us out.
