Buy Francesca the Weighted Flamingo online from Skillbuilders Australia
Francesca is a therapeutic Flamingo who is perfect for all children including our sensory and anxious young friends. Her soft texture and weighted body are perfect for reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality.
Backed by evidence-based research, Francesca the Weighed Flamingo provides firm tactile sensory input that provides deep pressure, proprioceptive input for children. She 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.
Francesca can also be placed in the fridge for cold therapy, or heated for heat therapy and is lovingly infused with French lavender to encourage relaxation.
