When you’re not feeling well, it doesn’t matter how old you are, it is nice to snuggle up with something soft and warm. If that happens to be a stuffed animal, there is no shame here, there’s a reason everyone loves stuffed animals! They can be extremely comforting and soothing. Experts have even said it is totally normal for adults to sleep with stuffed animals, as they are considered transitional objects that can give us a sense of comfort.

If you’re a big lover of stuffed animals, you’re going to want to check out these “Warmies” plush animals that are sold by Intelex on Amazon. Not only are they adorable, but they were also created to help ease any aches and pains you might have. They can be put in the microwave to be heated up or they can be turned into a cold pack by being placed inside of a plastic bag inside of the fridge or freezer. The inside of the plush animals are filled with treated grains and dried lavender, so they’ll even smell comforting as well.
