Hugs and holds children, giving them a sense of their own environment. Smooth rocking and cradle like comfort make for a calm and peaceful seating experience. Benefits range from better focus, less fidgeting, increased eye contact, more concentration and all around peaceful sitting on ground or chair. The HowdaHUG1 was our first seat for children and because it is a seat for “most” kids, it is also great for teachers and parents to use for showing children how to sit and rock in them. Howda HUG materials are safe and environmentally friendly. 100% cotton canvas and renewable American Base-wood, the lightest of the hard woods.
- The Howda HUG straps are adjustable.
- They are fidget proof and safe, made not to open not easy to adjust so once they are set they will stay put.
- Pull down on the flap of the strap to make the Howda HUG tighter.
- Tighter is great for leaning back feeling the cradle!
Snug as a bug in the HUGs : The child should here snugly with bottom all the way back into the Howda to receive the best HUG. That way the child will feel the embrace of the Howda HUG’s rib-like slats snugly surrounding the body. Then rocking, in a cradle-like movement, settles the child into a new comfort zone.
All children love the HUGS, especially young people requiring deeper sensory input. Teachers call this the “Huga chair” and “the listening chair” because when kids are hugged they listen better!
The linear rocking movement provides children, with low muscle tone and core strength, the benefit of strengthening those muscles. Occupational Therapists and Special Education Teachers endorse the Howda HUG over all other seating for helping children with Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and other spectrum disorders or just fidgety kids. They tell us that using the Howda Hug in school during circle time or at the desk makes a noticeable difference in the child’s focus and attention.
“I just love this amazing seat. I’ve seen it work for kids and recommend it to all the parents and educators I speak to” says Carol Kranowitz, renowned speaker and nationally recognized author of “The Out-of-Sync Child, says of the HowdaHUG
The new improved HowdaHUG seat has a doubly durable bottom hinge that allows children to rock away without damaging or wearing out the canvas. This improvement creates a cushioning for better and more balanced rocking.
