3 years & up. Meet Theo the Therapy Dog! This fuzzy lapdog is specially designed to function as a comforting companion. With a slightly heavy weight of 2.5 pounds, this cuddly friend can provide a sense of security to children with sensory input needs. Theo's soft, floppy body can lie across your lap or shoulders, and even sit-up beside you. He's just the right size for carrying along to any environment that can raise stress levels. His warm, heavy body feels lifelike, which can help to relieve stress and sharpen focus. The beads, fur, paw-pads, ears, eyes and nose all provide unique textures for tactile exploration. The hook and loop pocket in his tummy holds a pouch of ceramic beads that emits a gentle lavender aroma. Remove the pouch to heat in the microwave, or chill in the refrigerator.
