Sensoric and tactile heat pad
Otto is a 2.5 kg octopus, made in a soft fur with dimples. The dimples activate the tactile nervous system and create calmness in the child. He can be used in sleeping situations, where the tactile need often is bigger. Put Otto on the stomach and let the child touch the tentacles and dimple fur.
Otto has an inner bag at 800 gram, which can be removed via the zipper and heated in the owen at 100 degrees for 5-10 minutes or microwave for approx 1 min at 750 W. Remember that children are more sensitive to heat influences, so always check before giving a heated pad to a child. REMEMBER Only the inner bag can be heated, DO NOT heat the animal.
The inner bag can also be used as a cooling pad. Put it in a bag to protect the pad. Put it in a freezer or refrigerator and after 1 hour it should be ready. Check again if it is too cold for the child before using the pad in the octopus.
The filling in the heat pad is made of grape seeds, which are very good at keeping both heat and Cold temperature. What’s even better is that you do not have to remember turning it off. Otto completely chills itself.
Heat pad is equally suitable for children as well as adults.
The octopus has been tested and approved for strength (EN 71-1), flammability (EN 71-2) and chemistry (EN 71-3)
