Why We Love It
Calming Weight and Pockets for Everything!

Zipper and hook-and-loop closures encourage fine motor skill development. Use the zipper to open and close the vest and the hook-and-loop closure to open and close the pockets.

Commitment to Safety
Always select products for your child’s developmental abilities, which can differ from chronological age. Consult with your pediatrician or therapist for guidance.
When using our products, remember that you – as the caregiver – know your child best. Please follow our safety recommendations, and provide additional supervision as needed for your child.
Though no chewy is indestructible, our categories can be helpful when choosing a chewy. Make sure the chewy you choose is appropriate for your child’s development and needs. Please follow our safety recommendations for chewies. Chewies should always be used with adult supervision.
