"Time for our son to fall asleep went from 2-3 hours to 5-10 minutes. I’m kicking myself for not getting this blanket sooner. Life changing."
Have you struggled to help your child sleep? As parents we know that sleep is vital to a child’s development, but we don’t want to compromise with options that solve one issue just to create another. Harkla’s weighted blanket naturally helps your child calm down and get better sleep through deep touch pressure.
Harkla's weighted blankets for kids help naturally calm the body through deep touch pressure. The weight helps your child by regulating their nervous system encouraging calm (It’s like receiving a hug!). Our kids weighted blankets are great for situations that are often stressful for sensory seekers like the classroom or car rides.
The soft minky fabric design adds a sensory input to support your child's needs. The 2-piece duvet style removable cover makes it easy to remove the top layer to wash & dry at home.

DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE
The science behind weighted blankets is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here.
DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies about weighted blankets and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.

Kids Weighted Blanket
Bought this for my son for Christmas. He loves the feel of it - both the softness of the cover and the weight of the blanket.
He usually tosses and turns a bit at night but he seems to be sleeping deeper with the Harkla blanket. And I feel comfortable that the weight is not too heavy for a child.
I’m also impressed with the quality of the blanket and cover. I imagine that they will hold up well for a very long time.
Love that some of the money from this purchase goes to a great cause! Win-win.
This is Christmas present so we haven’t tested it yet. I’m sorry.
This blanket is so soft, also, very easy to wash. My 5 year old loves her blanket, she snuggles under it through out the day.
Perfect size to drape over my side of the bed from the waist down to my feet. Keeps me warm too and I sleep better.
