Francesca - The Weighted Flamingo
Francesca is a therapeutic Flamingo who is perfect for all children including our sensory and anxious friends. She is lovingly infused with French lavender to encourage relaxation. Her soft texture and weighted body is perfect for reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality.
Backed by evidence-based research, Francesca the Weighted Flamingo focuses on Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS), which is a firm tactile sensory input that provides a Proprioceptive* response to the body. It simulates firm hugs and compression and motivates the release of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. This helps children to regulate their emotions when going to sleep or when they are feeling emotionally overwhelmed.
Francesca and her five senses friends are here to teach you why your five senses keep you in the moment; a recipe for a happy life.
