Hugimals was born out of a personal quest and lots of research. Marina, the founder of Hugimals' world, started researching weighted products and the science behind them, looking for something smaller that could ease anxiety in anyone who loved the comforting sensation of Deep Touch Pressure: from kids to adults, neurotypical, neurodivergent, sensory-seeking, and everyone in between.

She couldn't find the high-quality, lovable and beautifully designed weighted plush that she was looking for, something she would be proud to gift to loved ones or cuddle at home, so she created Hugimals!
