Buy Ollie the Weighted Octopus online from Skillbuilders Australia
Ollie is a therapeutic Octopus who is perfect for all children including our sensory and anxious young friends. His soft texture and weighted body are perfect for reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality.
Backed by evidence-based research, Ollie the Weighed Octopus provides firm tactile sensory input that provides deep pressure, proprioceptive input for children. He 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 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.
