Weighted Blankets

Small, Child, Teen / Adult

Help to calm, comfort, and provide pressure for those with sensory needs, anxiety, and/or trouble sleeping.

Three blanket sizes are available: small, child, and teen/adult.

They are awesome for bedtime, naps, during homework, watching TV, reading stories, etc. Smaller weighted blankets may be used as extra large lap pads if desired.


Weighted Lap Pads

Various Sizes, Styles, and Weights

Provide added pressure on the legs or lap, helping people to stay calm and focused, through sensory issues or anxiety.

Several sizes and styles are available and have a fairly quick turnaround time.

They are wonderful for school, work, church, or other settings where extended sitting and focus are required. Larger lap pads maybe used across legs to help calm restless legs.


Beneficial for Various Conditions

Our high-quality, affordable weighted blankets can provide comfort, focus and relaxation to those with

  • Anxiety / PTSD
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • and other sensory and mood-related conditions

Working like Deep Touch Pressure provided by Occupational Therapists, weighted blankets and lap pads help the person’s body create natural seratonin (the body’s happy neurotransmitter) and melatonin (the body’s natural sleep-regulating hormone) to improve their mood and concentration, relieve stress, and help them to fall asleep faster, sleep more deeply, and stay asleep longer.

Benefits of weighted blankets

  • Calm, relax, and relieve stress
  • Soothe anxieties and avoid anxiety attacks
  • Provide grounded and secure feeling
  • Help organize thoughts
  • Improve mood and focus
  • Decrease length and severity of sensory meltdowns
  • Fall asleep faster and sleep longer and more deeply
  • Relax restless legs due to restless leg syndrome or cancer treatment

Nothing has worked...before this

Awesome quality product. I’ve been using it for a little over a week now and it seems to be working! This is amazing because nothing has worked for my insomnia before this. Thank you!

He has been up earlier and on time more often

My son was so happy to get his weighted blanket for Christmas. He is 17 and has anxiety and insomnia. Because of this, he is late to school almost every day. Since school got back in after Christmas break, he has been up earlier and on time to school more often. The blanket is well made and very soft. My other kids all want one now!

Lots of choices

Both my son and I are a bit picky about fabric designs, and I was so happy when I found how customizable these blankets are. He could pick something that caters to his unique interests. The in-house fabrics are wonderful too. I also loved having lots of filling and size choices. I’ve already recommended it to others. Great responsive service, too!

These blankets have really helped our family

My daughter’s 9 & 10 absolutely Love their weighted blankets. We have used multiple others before at home and in therapy and we are over the moon with these. My 10yr old suffers from severe anxiety, depression and bipolar. With that comes huge emotional swings and anger swings…

These blankets have really helped our family

…There isn’t anything you can say or do in those moments which is where her weighted blanket comes in. She wraps herself up in it and it helps her recenter herself and calm down. In the extremely rough yr with my oldest, my youngest has gained some anxiety and so her blanket has been a huge help as well…

These blankets have really helped our family

…I even borrow it for my restless legs and it is a tremendous help!! These blankets have really helped our family. They aren’t big and bulky. They can fold up smaller than most regular blankets actually(easy to travel with) and with the beads they use I keeps you cool even though it’s a weighted blanket. I very strongly recommend Flat Hippo.

Superior Filling

Glass Microbeads

We use glass microbeads as filling because they are smoother and 3 times denser than poly pellets, so your blanket is 1/3rd the thickness, which makes it…

  • Easier to fold
  • Easier to maneuver
  • Easier to pack
  • Easier to transport
  • Easier to wash

The glass microbeads are also non-flammable and hypoallergenic.

* Note: Photo is a close-up. Glass microbeads are about the size of fine sand.
