Who is this blanket for?

  • The Huggaroo blanket is designed for and best suited for children who weigh 30-80 lbs.
  • Adults who prefer a lighter weighted blanket that covers only their chest, abdomen and upper thighs.
  • The Huggaroo may be perfect for you if you are looking for a multipurpose, easy to carry around the house, super soft and snuggly weighted blanket.

Better sleep for your child (and for you)!

  • The Huggaroo blanket is a natural sleep aid and can help children and adults relax, fall asleep faster, toss and turn less at night, and stay asleep longer.

Reduce stress and anxiety. Improve mood.

  • The evenly distributed weight of the Huggaroo blanket feels like a gentle, soothing hug. It lowers anxiety and induces a sense of calm.
  • The steady pressure of the Huggaroo blanket activates the parasympathetic nervous system, lowers levels of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline (thus decreasing anxiety), and triggers release of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which improve mood and soothe aches.  These are the same neurotransmitters released in our brains when we get a hug from a loved one!

Deep pressure therapy. Sensory therapy.

  • In addition to providing deep pressure therapy, the Huggaroo blanket is a joy to snuggle with, whether you want to sleep, read, relax, or meditate. It is incredibly soft to the touch and visually soothing.
  • The Huggaroo blanket size and weight are perfect for carrying around and multipurpose use.

Two piece blanket for easy care

When you receive your blanket, please unzip the duvet cover and secure the inner weighted quilt to it at all  locations. That will keep the weighted inner quilt securely in place. The ties are not tied at the factory (in case you want to wash your blanket first; that is entirely optional).

Both the inner quilt and outer duvet cover are machine washable (cold, gentle setting would be best); air dry or air fluff in dryer for best results.


Facts About Insomnia and Anxiety

  • Insomnia (struggling to fall asleep or trouble staying asleep at night) is very common in children and adults. 30% of adults have trouble falling or staying asleep most nights, and 68% (164 million Americans) struggle with sleep at least once per week
  • 25% of children ages 8-17 say they worry a great deal.  Not only can anxiety lead to poor sleep but the reverse is also true: children who sleep poorly tend to have higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
  • Failure to get enough sleep contributes to day time drowsiness, inability to concentrate, behavioral problems such as hyperactivity and aggression, and poor productivity. It can also contribute to or exacerbate health problems such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, and depression.

Other Benefits of Weighted Blankets

  • Studies have shown that deep pressure and sensory therapy can help reduce tantrums, self-injury behavior, and stem repetitive behavior
  • The Huggaroo weighted blanket can be helpful to individuals with Insomnia and Anxiety; Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD); Restless Leg Syndrome; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Down Syndrome; Cancer-related Pain and Anxiety; Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease

    The fabric is super soft to the touch and didn’t lose any softness after washing. ( I let both the inner and outer blankets air dry as suggested.) The blanket seems very well made. Its weight is calming.

    I love the Huggaroo Weighted Blanket! It is so comforting and it helps me sleep better and longer. The weight of the blanket is perfect. It’ also works great as a throw on the couch. I’m very impressed with the quality of the cuddly fabric and the hidden zipper that doesn’t snag. It’s great that the cover is removable so it can be washed. The blanket arrived very quickly, too. Fantastic product!

    Finally- a soft & washable weighted blanket! Love it!!! My daughter opened the package then went to lay down to try it out …and she fell asleep. Things I like: the fabric is so soft and washable, the zipper is hidden and is good quality; the weight is perfect (not too heavy). We have another weighted blanket but it is not washable…so happy that this one is. Also, it is packaged well. I’m ordering another one for my other child.

    Love it! We just received our blanket yesterday and I can already tell that it’s going to be so great for my daughter! She has always had a lot of energy and her preschool teacher mentioned to me that a weighted blanket really helped her when she needed to sit down and focus. I really wanted to get her something that she could take to kindergarten next year. When I saw how much research was put into the Huggaroo I wanted to try it. We got it yesterday and it’s amazing! We were having a movie night and she sat under it the whole time and watched. She’s usually turning flips off the couch, haha. It is so soft too. We are so pleased with our purchase and can’t wait to see how it helps her. Thanks for the great product!

    Pros: Soft, A good weight, Easy to clean, The texture soothes even people with sensory disorders. For me, helps with anxiety/spinning and insomnia. It comes with an easy to carry plastic bag w/handle. An excellent value for the price. Caution: Please pay attention to the minimum child weight for this. One thing I would like to see in the future is the potential for a more durable bag, but I love this item.

    My daughter has slept with her huggaroo since it arrived and she LOVES it. She has always had trouble sleeping and in just a few days we are seeing her slept better through the night. I used it for a nap once when I had a migraine and I definitely felt soothed by the weight! Can’t say enough great things about this product!

    How did we ever go without the Huggaroo Blanket??? Wow! We have truly benefited from having the Huggaroo Weighted Blanket. We have a new child in our home who has experienced trauma. We have cuddled with him in this blanket. He seems to calm and relax against us when we are wrapped in the blanket. The material is so soft that you cannot keep from rubbing the blanket as it hugs your body. This is such a great product that will find frequent use in our home!

    The Huggaroo Weighted Blanket is great! I love the weight of it and the fabric is soft, but durable and the zipper makes it so easy to keep clean. The weight is just the right amount to work as a sleeping aid! Thank you!

    This blanket has changed my life! I had never tried a weighted blanket before and knew there was some good research out there showing the many benefits of these. I deal with a lot of daily anxiety and have a lot of pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have always had trouble sleeping. I would flip and flop and toss and turn constantly trying to get into a restful sleep. I would always wake up so tired because I could never relax and settle into a deep sleep for long. It was a constant negative cycle. Enter Huggaroo, and things started changing from the very first night! The soft, plush exterior felt amazing to the touch. The weight isn’t too heavy at all and it did not make me hot or feel overheated. The gentle weight of this blanket caused my body to calm down and start relaxing very quickly. Before I knew it I was asleep. Here’s the best part…it was quality sleep! Sleep I had been missing out on and craving for years! I just couldn’t believe how well my body responded to the gentle, calming weight of this blanket! I cannot recommend the Huggaroo enough for anyone who struggles with anxiety and trouble relaxing/sleeping.
    Another great feature of this blanket is that it isn’t too large. This makes it easy to transport to another room or even pack it for travel. It’s also washable and that is very important to me.
    I hope this review is helpful to anyone who is considering this blanket. It has made a big difference in the way I sleep and feel the next day! Worth every penny.

    Absolutely love this blanket! The weight, the feel, the color. It is incredibly calming and relaxing. The whole family loves it!

    I highly recommend the Huggaroo blanket. We purchased it for my 3 year old who, although doesn’t have anxiety, has trouble settling down for a nap. The Huggaroo has changed naptime for us! Our son actually requests it and as soon as he is covered in it, settles right down. I should also mention that it’s the perfect size for a small child to sleep with. Not too heavy or big and bulky. Happy customer!

    Buy this blanket! I bought this blanket a few weeks ago and wanted to give it some time before reviewing. I have not been able to use it at all because my daughters, ages 6 and 8, are obsessed with it! They love the super soft and cozy outside, and the weighted blanket is calming and soothing, especially when they are out of sorts or have had an extra long day. They will snuggle under it on the couch and read and relax. They decided to alternate use of the blanket each night, which is working for now, but I see the purchase of another Huggaroo in our future.

    Love this Huggaroo weighted blanket! It arrived promptly and is really well made. We easily secured the inner quilt with the ties – the elastic loops worked great and made the process really easy. The material is super soft and comforting. I would highly recommend this high quality weighted blanket.

    Love this blanket! Highly recommend for anyone with sensory issues and/or anxiety! My 5 year old son absolutely loves his new Huggaroo blanket!!! He have tried other weighted blankets before but this one is by far the best. He loves the soft texture of the blanket. He has sensory processing issues and is very picky about his clothes and textures but he begs for his blanket at nightime and naptime. As both a mom and a child therapist, I would highly recommend this for anyone with sensory issues or anxiety! Definitely 5 stars

    I bought this for my children who have enjoyed it and so not find it too heavy to transport. However, I myself have slept under it the past two nights. I do believe I fell asleep faster and did not wake up as often as usual!

    Amazing soft blanket! Excellent customer service! I received this blanket yesterday. It’s super soft and the outer shell is removable so it’s easy to wash. My son loves it! I had a small problem with one of the strings and Wendy the owner of Huggaroo went above and beyond to rectify it. First class customer service! I’d definietrly purchase from her in the future. I was thinking of getting another one for my dad who has dementia.

    Just right! My son has not been sleeping well. I received the blanket in the afternoon and after he fell asleep that night, I put the blanket on him. Without realizing the addition of the blanket, he woke up saying that he had a great night sleep. The cover is super soft and the ties keep the insert in place. It is just the right weight to achieve a feeling of calm without feeling overheated. Great product!

    I have both the blanket and the neck wrap and love them both. I also own a competitor’s weighted blanket, and I prefer this one. I am an adult, and I like this smaller size vs. a large weighted blanket, as I discovered I really just prefer the weight on just my torso vs. the entire body. Plus I really like how soft this material is, and the zip off cover, which makes washing so much easier. I have a hard time falling asleep, and this does help me, along with a white noise machine.The neck wrap is very soothing and I love the aromatherapy. The owners are very nice and knowledgable, as I had a few questions about the products and received exceptional customer service. I feel confident knowing that they stand behind their products.
