Slightly lighter than the others, the weighted snake is usually placed around the neck and on the shoulders. This manimo twists and wriggles, to your child’s immense delight!

Manimo weighted animals, a sensory tool designed to soothe children with or without learning difficulties, were created in Quebec in 2002. They have been very well received by healthcare professionals (occupational therapists and psychoeducators), special educators, parents and teachers from all over the country.

Children are exposed to endless stimuli and numerous situations in a day. While some children take it all in stride, others have a harder time coping. For children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), these stimuli and situations can be extremely difficult to handle.

  • Cuddly and adorable, Manimo animals are there for children both in times of stress and when relaxing.
  • Their weight soothes, comforts and helps the child better understand where their body is in space (spatial awareness).
  • A Manimo’s heaviness causes the same sensation as deep touch pressure.
  • Like a massage, this stimulation calms the nervous system, making it easier to concentrate. It also regulates behaviour and emotions.
  • Portable and easy to clean, Manimo animals can be placed on shoulders, hips, thighs or stomach.
  • Their shape was designed for many uses and to meet various needs.
  • Whether to pay attention in class, help focus on homework or ease the transition to bedtime, your child’s Manimo will accompany him or her throughout the day, in every activity. Together, they will celebrate daily victories.
  • Five (5)manimo models are available in several colours.
  • They weigh between 1 and 2.5 kg and are for children ages 3 and up.

Recommendations:

Due to the weight of the animals, we recommend using them for 15-20 minute periods. If used longer, the body will grow accustomed to the sensation, which will reduce the beneficial effects over time.

Providing numerous benefits, manimo weighted animals help children develop their imagination and reach their full potential. And they are always happy to get a big hug.
