Get a Squeeze While You Sit

Nicknamed the "listening chair," HowdaHUG provides deep sensory input to encourage calm and focus. It gently cradles children who rock and provides support to prevent them from falling back. Cocoon-like support holds kids in an upright position to promote balance, core strength and posture. Can be used on the floor or placed on a chair.

  • Supports children with autism, ADHD and sensory processing disorder
  • Straps adjust to provide tighter squeeze and an additional feeling of security
  • Age 3+

Getting Started

Lightweight and rolls up for easy transport and storage. Choose from Petite Hug Adjustable for pre-schoolers; the HowdaHug1 for elementary school and older; or the HowdaHug2, which features a narrower construction (see details tab). Use with adult supervision.

    For my students who still enjoy sitting close when reading, this allows the close feeling without being crowded. They all enjoy it.

    My son uses this both at circle time and in his chair. It allows him to rock a little, get squeezed a little, but he barely notices and it hasn't turned into a toy (which many other things have). Good buy for school.

    The HowdaHug seat is one of my favorite therapy tools. I work in the schools and the kiddos who use this seat in the classroom love it, as do the teachers. The Howda Hug seats give a gentle hug as you lean back into them—which is calming, they work on core strength, and they provide a little movement for those kids who have to have that to stay engaged. They are sturdy, and made in America. I highly recommend them.

    I bought this chair for my son on his Birthday. He simply loves it! He's 11 and we homeschool. I love the fact that he goes and gets it out on his own. It helps him take control of when he feels he needs some sensory time. It had been on our wish list for quite a while and I'm really happy we made the decision to finally buy it. As always with our Fun and Function purchases it's a quality product and built quite sturdy. Which with a preteen boy is important! lol

    The hug helps to calm! It is the embrace the kids need. It also rocks and for some that is the best.

    Once I saw to it that the child sat back into the seat with his bottom snug into the HUG, he relaxed and loved it and like rocking in the HUG seat. It quieted his usual need to wiggle and helped him focus. Love it!

    My son struggled mightily with circle time, spending much of the time in the shadow's lap... We just had a big team meeting with his classroom teacher, public school itinerant teacher, OT, classroom behavioral supervisor, and his home program behavioral supervisor. Everyone felt that the HowdaHUG has worked great to make circle time much more successful. It helps him stay more focused and attend to the teacher, and it also provides a sensory experience for him so he doesn't have to leave the classroom to go outside and spin or anything like that, which is wonderful, too.

    It is difficult to get preschool students into the chair and adjusted properly. None of the kiddos on my caseload have stayed in it for more than 5 minutes or chosen to sit in it.
