This fuzzy lapdog is specially designed to function as a comforting, anti-anxiety companion. Theo can help children cope with stressful situations by providing deep pressure stimulation, warm or cool temperatures, and a soothing lavender aroma. His soft, cuddly body is weighted to help children feel secure as they hold him. Theo is fluffy and floppy. He loves to lay across your lap or shoulders, and even sit-up beside you, making him a great coping tool for children with sensory input needs. He’s just the right size for carrying along to the Dr.’s office, the dentist, over-night visitations, or any unfamiliar environment that can raise stress levels. His warm, heavy body feels lifelike, which can help to relieve stress and sharpen focus without the responsibility of caring for a live animal. His paws are filled with beads that add weight. He also has a hook and loop pouch in his belly filled with ceramic beads that not only add weight but can also be removed and cooled in the fridge. Replace the pouch and Theo becomes a soothing cool temperature. When heated, the pouch emits a gentle lavender scent to help promote calm. The beads, fur, paw-pads, ears, eyes and nose all provide unique textures for tactile exploration.
