Weighted lap pads help people focus at school, work and home

Weighted lap pads provide a feeling of comfort and security that helps prevent feelings of overwhelm and loss of attention.

They do this by providing gentle, firm Deep Pressure Touch.

Deep Pressure Touch deactivates the “Fight or Flight” response to calm both the body and mind. This, in turn, helps keep you focused and “on-task”.

Made with Love and Care

We make each Character Weighted Lap pad with a front of your choice of licensed printed cotton. The back is your choice of a coloured cotton, sensory minky or smooth minky. We make them with love and care in our factory in Mandurah, WA.

The secret to the blanket’s calming effect is its weight. This comes from fine micro glass beads that have no sharp edges.

The glass beads mean that there is no disturbing rustling or swooshing noise so that your pet can sleep peacefully.

We fill each weighted blanket with two layers of wadding. This keeps the micro glass beads that provide the weight in place so there is no “bunching” or “pooling” of the beads. This means that the beads stay evenly distributed for the best calming effect.

Which all means that Calming Moments’ weighted lap pads can help you:

☑️ Stay focused; and

☑️ Feel calmer and less anxious.


This Design-Your-Own Character weighted lap pad is the size of a small tray and lies over your knees. Great for the car, taking to school or just for people who need it when sitting in a chair as a comforting aid.

Choose your favourite character licensed printed cotton for the front and a back from our selection of coloured cotton, sensory minky or smooth minky options.

Our weighted lap pads (also known as blankets) come in 6 sizes with your choice of different coloured fabric.

A lap pad doesn’t require as much weight as the larger blankets as the weight is concentrated into a smaller area on the person.

Blanket Sizes are:

  • Small 50x36cm approx & weighs 1kg suggested for 2 – 4 year olds
  • Medium 60x40cm approx & weighs 1.5kg suggested for 5 – 7 year olds
  • Large 70x44cm approx & weighs 2kg suggested for 8 – 9 year olds

"Have purchased a number of weighted lap blankets for my school. All very well made and are very high quality. We wash them and really give them a work out! Great service from Calming Moments, easy website and quick to receive our orders. Thanks for supporting our kids!"

Rebecca A

"Exceptional customer service and a product that is second to none. We have been through a lot of lap blankets before stumbling upon Calming Moments and I’m honestly blown away by the quality. Absolutely superb."

Missy V

"The weighted lap blanket is perfect. Lovely, soft material and just the right amount of distributed weight. The quality is amazing and the personalized embroidery is a really nice touch."

Rebecca R

"I ordered a 2kg lap blanket for my son’s birthday in June. It is now one of the most important things we own and goes everywhere with him. We use it over his body during nappy changes, round his shoulders during toiletting and over his lap when sitting. The blanket is beautifully made and I love the funky monkey print. Will probably invest in a larger size blanket soon. Very highly recommended. "

Ashley C

"I have ADD and bought a lap pad to sit on my lap at work to help me stay calm and focused. I’m honestly so impressed with my entire purchase. The pad itself is fantastic and I am way less fidgety when I’m using it. The colour choices are great and they’re really well made. But the best part by far is the customer service. Your order is updated with notes through the entire process so you know exactly what’s happening and when and it’s clear the staff are passionate about what they do. Highly recommend. "

Casey D

"My lap blanket arrived for my 4yr old daughter with SPD on Monday, she has asked to use her blanket at every opportunity since, I think she can already feel it helping her so is using it to self regulate already. DEFINITELY WORTH EVERY CENT & THE WAIT!"

Jemima A

"Have purchased 2 lap blankets from Calming Moments. They have been made and shipped really quickly and we have been really happy with the quality. My sons use them on their laps on the way to school for some deep pressure input to help their bodies be ready for school."

Jules A

"This is the second one I have purchased, and I love the new bigger size that's now available! I adore that you can create so many combinations, and both I have bought have been perfect for each child."

Diane W

"Great soft fabric! Have the ability to put ones personal name on it is very handy when or if its use is in a classroom setting. The size is perfect too."

Suzi O

"I bought this weighted lap blanket for my daughter who has been struggling at school. It was so beautifully made, so thank you Calming Moments."
