Hugs are really important; we need 8-12 a day.

That's why we made Percy.

Hugs help us regulate our nervous system

Based on the theories of deep pressure therapy, using 3 lbs of natural clay beads in the body and paws, Percy feels just like a hug and allows our nervous system to regulate and feel safe and calm.

Built for hugs at bedtime

Falling asleep can be really hard. What makes it easier? Having a soft, warm, snuggly friend like, Percy to cuddle with.

Warming hugs or soothing snugs

Percy can be warmed in the microwave to offer extra comfort or cooled in the freezer. This offers an added sensory support for those particularly hard days.

Meet the Founder

Amy created For the Cubs after becoming a licensed foster parent. While learning about people needing an ideal 12 hugs a day, she designed Percy, the weighted plushie to mimic a hug. Percy was inspired by Amy’s late grandpa, who played a big role in her upbringing in the outback of Australia. Amy has poured her heart into thoughtfully curating safe, functional, and beautiful collections for eating, sleeping and soothing, with every order supporting kids in foster care through our nonprofit partner, One Simple Wish. She has cared for nine kids since becoming a foster parent. She lives in Austin, TX with her husband and two dogs.
