5 Reasons Why You Should Have A Plushie!

1. Forever your companion

Plushies always seem to be in the best of moods, no matter the weather or situation! No matter how bad your day may have been, you'll always be greeted by a smiling furry face when you get home. A plushie that you can melt your face into when things go south. How do I know you'll do this? Well lets just say I've been doing it for almost a year now and it's the best feeling ever.


2. Feel at peace

Did you know nine out of ten people say a spontaneous hug from another person or any sort of affection from a pet lifts their self-esteem and boosts their sense of worth.

Behind the scenes in the brain, comfort hugs trigger the release of oxytocin and serotonin—the ‘feel-good’ hormones. But there is more at play than hormones that give us warm loving feelings.

Many studies have shown that a comfort object like a plush increases emotional wellbeing, coping skills, resilience, self-esteem and sleep because a plushie triggers a self-soothing feeling.

3. Stay warm during cold nights

Have you ever hugged a cuddly plushie during the Winter or Autumn when the evenings are freezing? If you answered, no then you're definitely missing out. Hug a person for too long and you or they get uncomfortable, there's hair in your face and you start to burn up like firey charcoal. But if you have nobody to hug then look no further, a plushie is the perfect companion to keep you warm. 


4. Help with back pain

People have been sleeping with plushies since forever, and body pillows are the evolution of that concept. Most of us sleep on the side of the body which causes hip and lower back pain in the long run. Having a body pillow provides support to your spine while you sleep, reducing back pain and neck tension. You can find a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses of plushies based on your personal preference. We would totally recommend getting a long or huge plush so that you can wrap your body around it. 


5. From beginning to end

Plushies, if taken care of, can last a lifetime and hold memories as you continue to grow and explore the world. Many children grow more attached to plushies than any other toy because of the relationship they build together. Grab yourself a plushie today for yourself or your loved ones or even a gift for your nephew or niece and watch them grow older with your special gift.
