Sensory Seekers Can Wear a Hug, All Day Long!

Feeling anxious, stressed or having trouble focusing? Can’t sit still? Wearing a weighted vest is like getting a gentle, soothing hug. The proprioceptive input has a grounding effect, helping kids to focus and calm down. Many even ask to wear it! Kids enjoy the stylish, low-profile design so they don’t stand out. The smooth material makes this vest ideal for tactile defensive kids. Removable weights are tucked in interior pockets, and sides are size-adjustable.

  • Snaps right over other clothes and looks stylish
  • Provides steady sensory input, helping kids to focus and calm down
  • Supports kids and adults with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
  • Made by Fun and Function
  • Ages 2-11

Getting Started

Includes 2 lbs. of weight: four 1/4 lb. weights and two 1/2 lb. weights. Additional weights sold separately (see accessories). Weights are safely positioned in pockets inside the vest and can be added or removed. Learn about the calming benefits of weights and compression. 

Use weighted products with guidance from a therapist. You may benefit from 20-30 minutes of wear each hour, or longer. Use with adult supervision.

    We love our vest for our three year old. The extra small is a perfect fit with room to grow. We wear it for 20 minute intervals as needed. It really helped when opening Christmas presents with his cousins. The situation was overwhelming and once we put his vest on, he sat and participated with them! Your site was recommended to us by our OT! Love your products!

    Can't say enough good things about this weighted vest.
    Verified Purchase
    "My son loves this vest so much that I ordered him the denim one. Sometimes he just can't seem to sit still or stop running, but he will happily put on his "rest vest" as we call it, when asked, and he's able to sit calmly and focus on other activities. Truly a miracle product."

    Spot On!
    Verified Purchase
    We were hoping the vest would be more fitted. Our son doesn't like the button closure on the front. The quality is SPOT ON, and the weights are nice. We like that you could put more weight in if you wanted/needed to, or put in less weight as well.

    Works well
    Verified Purchase
    My son would not tolerate a lap pad, but he wears this vest with no problem. I like how we can add weight 1/4 pound at a time. The pockets that hold the weights are nice with a velcro closure. I wish he wouldn't have such easy access to the pockets, because he takes the weights out and plays with them. But, this is no big deal. His therapist noticed that my son had more self-control before I told her that he started wearing this vest every morning.

    Just like the one at school, but prettier! She asks to wear it. Provides good proprioceptive input. Pockets are big enough to accommodate multiple weights.

    Only if teacher can put it off and on
    Verified Purchase
    Worked well for 6 months and then the snaps ripped off one side, so that 2 holes remain where 2 of the 3 snaps were. I was told by customer service that it is only meant for a teacher to put on and off. I was surprised as we are encouraging independence in our Kindergartener. He has hypotonia in his hands, so can't be rough with it. I am going to local friends that sew for ideas on a repair. Only get if an adult will put it in and off. Or your child will be very careful with the snaps.

    The vest really helps my son calm down after a stressful day or just a few hours of stress. It's easy to clean, just remove the weights from the pockets. Thanks for making wonderful products that help.

    Weighted Vest
    This vest adjusts easily and comes with enough weights to grow with my son. It is a little hard to unsnap and I am concerned that the snaps may rip over time. Hopefully that will not happen. I would recommend this to a friend.

    This is a great vest. My son felt really self conscious about the one the school was using, so we picked this out together. He had no problems wearing it

    Weighted Vest
    The vest has worked well for my younger students. When I tried to use the large size vest I was disappointed that the weights were not heavy enough. Any student that needs the larger size would need more weight. This should be stated so that weights can be ordered. Then it is another $19.00 which is not a great price since these are made from such a lightweight material compared to competitiors. Please let people know to order more weights or include more for the larger size.
