The Seat That Gives You A Hug

Help your sensory-seeker focus during story time, circle time or any learning time with HowdaHUG! The chair is designed to cradle the body with cocoon-like support and provide a calming hug and soothing rocking. Straps can be adjusted to provide additional pressure and security. The chair features a non-adjustable D-ring to keep things in place without squeezing fidgety fingers.

  • Made of American Basswood for flexibility and strength
  • Ideal for anyone with sensory processing disorder, ADHD or autism
  • Great for home, classroom or clinic use
  • Age 3+

Getting Started

Place your HowdaHUG on the floor or on a chair to prevent a child from rocking back and falling. Choose from the Petite Hug Adjustable for pre-schoolers, the HowdaHug1 for elementary school and older, and the HowdaHug2 which features a narrower construction (see details tab).

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

Works like a charm
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.

HowdaHug Seats
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.
