This chair embraces, hugs and holds children, giving them a sense of their own
environment. Smooth rocking and cradle like comfort make for a calm and
peaceful seating experience. Benefits range from better focus, less
fidgeting, increased eye contact, more concentration and all around
peaceful sitting on ground or chair. The HowdaHUG1 was our first seat

disorders or just fidgety kids. They tell us that using the HowdaHug in
school during circle time or at the desk makes a noticeable difference
in the child's focus and attention.
