Stuffed animals but particularly stuffed bears have long been shown to ease children’s stress, build confidence, and aid in social development.
Teddy Tappington has 10 buttons that signify meridian or energy points on your child’s body. Your child can hug, tap, and carry their new teddy anywhere all while providing sensory input with the addition of weighted glass beads.
This loveable weighted bear is eager to help your child handle his/her fears, anxieties, or challenges. The comfort that comes with loving a weighted stuffed bear can also promote a safe environment in which a scared, lost, or hurt child may open up or feel safe again.
Using a stuffed animal as a surrogate by tapping allows the child to rewire their brain while allowing their feelings to be carried by the stuffed animal so that they can let go.
Think about the impact these bears can have:
- Cancer Wards
- Kids entering the Foster Care System
- Children’s Hospitals
- Women’s Shelters
- Special Needs Children
- Treatment Facilities
I am overwhelmed and excited with the future possibilities for these bears and the children and families they will serve…thank you for being a part of this journey!
