Soft-toys, like special blankets, pillows, dummies and other toys, can be a great comfort tool for children. They help a child experience new or unusual situations, liking sleeping alone for the first time, or spending the night in a new house. They ease the stress in children because they provide a sense of familiarity or comfort.
One company has decided to take the comfort from soft-toys even further by turning them into wheat-bag type toys.
The soft-toys come in a range of different animals and colours, but these toys are microwavable and specially filled with treated millet grains and dried lavender. The animals give off a stress-reducing scent when heated.
