Ollie is a therapeutic Octopus who is perfect for all children including our sensory and anxious friends. He is lovingly infused with French lavender to encourage relaxation. His soft texture and weighted body is perfect for reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality.
Backed by evidence-based research, Ollie the Weighed Octopus focuses on Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS), which is a firm tactile sensory input that provides a Proprioceptive* response to the body. It simulates firm hugs and compression and motivates the release of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. This helps children to regulate their emotions when going to sleep or when they are feeling emotionally overwhelmed.
Ollie and his five senses friends guide you with mindful tools. He shows you why your five senses matter and helps you to self-soothe.
Please note that while Ollie The Weighted Octopus is soft and cuddly, he is also a special toy that requires gentle care. To ensure his longevity and safety, we recommend that children handle Ollie with care and that he is not subjected to rough play or washing. While we strive to create toys that are both durable and lovable, we cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur due to improper use. Thank you for your understanding and for giving Ollie the love and attention he deserves.
