It’s that time of year again! Back to school, and Hippo Hug has several great products to be used during the school season. Whether you are a kid just starting, are returning to the classroom, are going away to university, or are a teacher or parent looking for unique ways to help with sensory regulation for students, we can help. From big to small, Hippo Hug products might be just what’s missing from the usual school supplies.
Going away to University:
Whether it’s your first year away from home or your final year at university, it’s a stressful time. Packing up all your things and moving into a dorm room away from mom and dad is a big change that you want to be ready for. Many Hippo Hug products can be helpful in this transition.
A weighted blanket can help calm you down during exam period, help you get a good night’s sleep before a test in your new and unusual space, and it’s great to come home to a hug on a bad day. It can give you the comfort of home when you are far away, like a nice deep breath when the world is overwhelming.
If you are moving away from a beloved pet, a weighted animal may be a good choice. Many university students still have comfort items that they don’t even realize are filling a sensory need. A weighted animal can help reduce loneliness and give you calming deep pressure feedback. You can request any animal and it will feel as though they came to school with you.
A crash mat is a great place to relax while keeping your bed strictly for sleeping. Personalizing your dorm space can alleviate anxiety by adding excitement to the moving experience. When you have a space that is for studying and relaxing that is not your bed you can sleep better having established a healthy routine.
Sequin pillows can liven up any space, plus they are a great stress reliever while you are studying for a test. Your friends will be jealous and want to know where you got such a fun and addicting addition to your dorm.
A Hippo Sit weighted lap pad can help you stay focused in class and while studying. They are small enough to take to the library with you, and come in three different weights so you can choose the amount of pressure you need. Carrying it in your backpack will also give you deep pressure feedback as you go from class to class, making the transitions easier. Coming home to a mom or dad hug is a great thing at any time. With a Hippo Hug weighted blanket you can get the next best thing while away at school.
