Warmies: Microwavable Lavender Scented Stuffed Animals on Amazon

I just recently found these! You can place these in the microwave, and it provides some gentle heat for soothing comfort for kids. The one I saw was also slightly weighted due to the filling inside. I’m not sure if this one is weighted, but I would guess that it is too! It is filled with specially treated millet grains and dried lavender flower.
