About Our Cooling Stuffed Animals - How Hot & Cold Stuffed Animals Can Help You Relax

Customize Your Cool, Customize Your Calm

The beauty of the CHONKERS modular design is the flexibility you have over everything about their sensory input. You may like like heat to warm you up in the winter but cold to cool you off in the summer; heat to comfort you when you feel lonely or unwell, but cool to calm you when you are physically sore or angry. Everybody is different and moods change, but with CHONKERS, we have you covered. 

Our variety of Sensory Packs allow you to swap hot for cold based on your mood, your body, the temperature, or even icy hot it with both at the same time.

Cold Stuffed Animals

Do you know the amazing feeling of flipping your pillow over after sleeping on it for so long. The cool side of the pillow

By simply freezing the Cooling Sensory Pack, your weighted stuffed animal can always be as cool as the cool side of the pillow. Well... at least for 4 hours. 

Just like with the microwavable Sensory Packs to heat up your plush pal (See Here for More Information on Microwavable Features ), CHONKERS offer cool Sensory Packs that you can use alone, with weight, even with heat to help you find comfort and relax. 

With the simple addition of a CHONKERS Cooling Sensory Pack, you can turn your weighted stuffed animal into a cuddly Cold pad.

Instructions for Cooling Your Weighted Stuffed Animal

The CHONKERS Cooling Pack is designed to be removed from your plush stuffed animal so it can be put in the freezer and reinserted. This allows you to keep using it while cooling the Pack or use two different packs so always cool. You can follow the instructions  below to learn how to easily warm up your Chonker in the microwave in 4 quick steps:

    1. Make sure you have at least 1 Cooling Pack (note this is different than the Weighted Pack).

    2. Put your pack in a bag to keep clean and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours.   Exact time will depend on your freezer and preference. 

    3. Remove and reinsert into your CHONKER.

    4. Cuddle Away! Your Cooling Stuffed Animal should stay cold for about 2 hours or up to 4 hours.


Benefits of Cold Stuffed Animals

Like a calming blanket of snow for a polar bear

Calming - Cooling your stuffed animals can help calm you are having a panic attack, feeling angry or over-stimulated by providing sensory input to distract your mind. 

Comfort - There is nothing worse than trying to sleep through hot, sticky summer nights, and nothing that feels better than that cool side of the pillow. Cool your stuffed pal to have this nightly.

Pain Management & Recovery - Like using ice packs or ice baths, cold is great for recovery. Through cryotherapy, adding a Cooling Pack can help calm you physical body as well. By reducing blood flow to a particular area of your body you can help reduce inflammation and pain. 

These very natural techniques have been used for centuries, now cuter than ever...
