The Weighted Octopus
Our gently weighted Octopus will take the Baby Octopi Sensory experience to the next level!
Instead of our traditional stuffing, the weighted Octopus are filled with eco-friendly high density polyfill pellets (these are commonly used in weighted blankets) and bring the weight of our Octopus to approximately double that of the original. The light weight will extend the gentle pressure of your touch, keeping your baby calm and comforted!
The weighted Octopus features tentacles that are identical to our original Octopus. They are made with the same yarn by the same production team. The difference is in the stuffing that we use inside the Octopus head.
The eco friendly, high density poly fill pellets are sewn into a casing that keeps them safely tucked inside the Octopus head and eliminates any risk of the pellets escaping through the yarn.
The weighted Octopus are perfectly calibrated to provide a safe and optimal sensory experience for your little one. With a finished weight of approximately 4oz for the Signature and 2oz for the Mini, these are gentle enough for even newborn babies to hold.
Why the Octopus?
Each tentacle on the handcrafted crochet octopus is designed to mimic the feel of the life-giving umbilical cord that surrounds babies in the womb—providing comfort and familiarity as they transition to life on the outside.
