Age Range Recommendations for Weighted Stuffed Animals

Q: What age range are Weighted Stuffed Animals appropriate for?
A: Weighted stuffed animals are generally suitable for a wide range of ages, but specific recommendations often depend on the weight and design of the stuffed animal. Here are some general guidelines:
1. Toddlers (ages 2-4): Lighter weighted stuffed animals, typically under 2 pounds, are recommended. Always supervise young children to ensure safety.
   
2. Children (ages 5-12): Weighted stuffed animals weighing between 2-5 pounds are usually suitable. They can help with anxiety, stress, and sensory processing issues.
3. Teens (ages 13-18): Heavier weighted stuffed animals, up to 5-10 pounds, can be beneficial for teens dealing with anxiety, stress, ADHD, or autism.
4.  Adults: Weighted stuffed animals of various weights can be used by adults for relaxation, stress relief, and sensory support.
