USA Today - Moxie Blankets has become one of the best weighted blanket brands on the market targeting helping children, teens and adults overcome sleeping issues, stress, anxiety, restless leg syndrome and more. This includes a solution for nightmares, night wakings, and separation anxiety at night with their Monster Protection Academy Line. The Weighted Minky Blankets that cater to people with stress, anxiety, etc… are the Luxie and Moxie lines of handcrafted blankets.
Moxie Blankets feature an innovative design with a soft Minky outer shell. They use consistently smooth glass microbeads to add weight to the blanket. The brand offers a classic “Moxie” line, “Luxie” luxury line, and a Monster Protection Academy Line. Their Moxie line offers 5 lb, 7 lb, and 10 lb weighted blankets. Their Luxie line features a 10 lb weighted blanket with an embroidered logo and a luxurious double Minky fabric design. Their Monster Protection Academy line is geared towards children with fears of the dark and monsters under the bed. The blanket comes with a “No More Monsters” children’s book and a special certificate.
Weighted blankets work by offering deep touch pressure. This helps to relax the body by stimulating the production of serotonin. It also reduces cortisol levels to lessen feelings of anxiety at night. This creates a calmer and safe-feeling sleeping environment for the blanket user. Weighted blankets are effective in helping those with anxiety, depression, insomnia, sensory processing disorder, restless leg syndrome, PTSD, ADHD, and bipolar disorder. Many parents also get their child a weighted blanket for autism related sleep issues.
Jami Furniss, the CEO of Moxie Blankets, says, “As a parent whose child experienced extreme nightmares, I know first-hand the toll this can take on a family. Parents are plagued by sleep deprivation, nighttime anxiety, and constant worry over the child’s wellbeing. We invented The Monster Protection Academy as a safe and natural solution to help children overcome these sleeping problems and nightmares. With the innovation and creativity behind our products, children experience less anxiety with fewer night terrors/mares. This helps children and their parents to get a better night’s sleep, which is our goal.”
Moxie Blankets are recommended for children over the age of 3 and weighing over 30 pounds. Each blanket is handcrafted in the U.S and hand-inspected for quality control. Their products are made with non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and earth-friendly materials. Moxie Blankets come in a range of weights, sizes, and colors to appeal to each person’s personality and needs. The brand can also work with customers to create a custom weight for their Minky Weighted blankets!
