Weighted Stuffed Animals for Adults with Anxiety and Other Disorders

From their adjustable weight (up to 10 lbs!!!) to their modular design to allow you to add additional calming features like scent, heat, and cold, Chonkers is clearly less of a child's toy, and more of a relaxation therapy toolkit.

How Does it Work?

Disorders for Chonkers

Anxiety and other issues are not one size fits all so it does not make sense to take a single approach to manage it. That is why each stuffed animal is compatible with our growing collection of Sensory Packs allowing you to discover what is most effective for you and adjust to your exact needed. 
You can customize not only the weight, but also temperature, scents, sounds, and more to take advantage of a variety of sensory therapy techniques based on your mood or preferences. All Sensory Packs will always be reusable across any of our Stuffed Animals, using and combing many techniques such as.

  • Deep Touch Therapy
  • Heat Therapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Cold/Cryotherapy
  • Touch Therapy

And more...  

Which Sensory Packs are Right for Me?

We know! That's a lot to take in… but with the modular design of Chonkers, you only need to use what you want. Each person is different. Even with the same disorder different people have different preferences and tolerances that impact the effectiveness of different therapies and therapeutic aids. This is why we have built Chonkers to let use choose and constantly tinker with the feel and tools based on your own mood and choices. However, certain Sensory Packs are created to help cope with a particular disorder, feeling, or mental states, many of which are applicable to a variety of applications.

See the table below for our recommendations or take the quiz to find what could be best for your based on recommendations of Occupational & Physical Therapists. It is important to remember these are therapeutic aids, not a cure so should be used in conjunction with other prescribed therapies or treatments.
