Ollie The Weighted OctopusManna
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.
