This special listing is for an adult-sized weighted lap pad featuring the fabulous work of Shanna with Shanna's Tie Dye. Each lap pad measures approximately 16”x24”.
Weighted lap pads are used as a tool for people with anxiety, Autism, Sensory issues, ADHD, or anyone who enjoys the feeling of an ongoing giant hug.
Quality is one of the most important factors for our J.J. Goose products, and our weighted lap pads are no exception. We use high-end designer fabrics and fill our lap pads with quality glass beads manufactured in the USA.
Why glass beads? The glass beads in our J.J. Goose lap pads have the same smooth feel and texture as beach sand and are contained in separated pouches within the lap pad, so the individual glass bead pouches allow for even distribution of weight throughout the lap pad and can also double as fidget tools. Glass beads also make very little noise when moving around inside the lap pad, which is important to those with auditory sensitivities.
As part of our commitment to quality, all J.J. Goose weighted lap pads are double stitched to help bear the weight of the glass beads on the seams.
J.J. Goose weighted lap pads are machine-washable on gentle cycle in cold water. They can be tumble dried on low, however, we do recommend laying flat to dry to preserve longevity.
The universally accepted size/weight guideline for choosing a weighted lap pad is to base it off 5% of the weight of the intended user. For example, a 60lb child would typically use a 3lb weighted lap pad.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not medical professionals. Weighted lap pads are meant to be used as a helpful tool for those with anxiety, Autism, Sensory issues, ADHD, or anyone who enjoys the feeling of an ongoing giant hug. Please consult your doctor, pediatrician, and/or occupational therapist for appropriate medical guidance if you have any questions about how a weighted lap pad might benefit you and/or your child as each person’s situational needs are different.
