Our Dinosaur weighted travel blanket is a handy size that can be taken with you without being too small or too big when you are on the move. Choose your favourite dinosaur fabric for the front and match a back from our selection of coloured cotton, sensory minky or smooth minky options.

  • It’s ideal for smaller children when a bed blanket is too large.
  • It’s great for adults wanting something larger than a lap blanket to snuggle.

 

Fabric:

We make our Dinosaur weighted blankets with high quality printed cotton for the front. The back is your colour choice in cotton, sensory minky or smooth minky.

For the back, choose:

  • Cotton if you want a breathable, natural fabric. We recommend cotton for “hot sleepers”;
  • Sensory minky if you like to stroke textures to self-soothe; or
  • Smooth minky for a luxurious and snuggly blanket.

 

Available prints:

Dinosaurs on blue, Dinosaurs on white.
 

How we make it:

We make this Dinosaur Travel Weighted Blanket in Greenfields, Western Australia.

  • Each weighted blanket’s calming effect comes from its weight. This comes from filling each blanket with the correct weight of micro glass beads.
  • The glass beads are the size of mustard seeds with smooth edges.
  • Each blanket has evenly spaced, individually sewn pockets. We fill each pocket with an equal weight of micro glass beads. This means that the blanket’s weight is evenly distributed across your whole body.
  • We fill each blanket with two layers of cotton wadding. This keeps the glass beads evenly spread through each pocket.

 

Care instructions:

You can machine-wash this Dinosaur Weighted Travel Blanket on cold, gentle cycle.

FAQs

Our Aussie team custom-makes each weighted product so that it will calm and relax you. We make them for people with:

  • Severe anxiety that hurts their ability to experience joy;
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD);
  • Neurodivergence, including Autism and ADHD;
  • Insomnia;
  • Dementia or confusion or anxiety related to memory loss;
  • Sensory processing difficulties;
  • Big feelings of overwhelm that make it difficult to be calm and present; and
  • Depression.

Weighted blankets work because they are heavier than an ordinary blanket.

The extra weight provides calming Deep Pressure Touch.

Deep Pressure Touch is a firm but gentle consistent pressure. It triggers two responses in the body that bring feelings of reduced anxiety.

It firstly shuts off the body’s “fight or flight” instinct that is governed by the sympathetic nervous system.

It then activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This causes both the breathing rate and heart rate to slow and the muscles relax.

The end result is that you feel more relaxed and less anxious.

The extra weight of a weighted blanket gives your body soothing Deep Pressure Touch.

Deep Pressure Touch is constant, gentle pressure that first works to deactivate the body’s sympathetic nervous system (the body’s “fight or flight instinct).

Next, Deep Pressure Touch switches the body’s parasympathetic nervous system on.

The parasympathetic nervous system works to calm the body and mind by slowing the heart rate, reducing the respiration rate and relaxing the muscles.

All this helps relax your body so that you can sleep easily and soundly.

Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are a higher price point than some other brands on the market. There are two reasons for this:

  1. We use only the highest quality inputs. Our fabrics are manufactured with a high thread count, are colour-fast and meet all Australian safety standards. This means that you can rest assured that our products are safe to use and don’t contain any toxic fillers.
  2. We make them here in Australia. This means that our staff earn a fair wage and work legislated hours. (We understand that our staff earn as much in one hour as labourers in some Asian countries earn for a six-day, 12-hour-a-day working week.)

With a Calming Moments’ weighted blanket, you are buying:

  • Premium quality that will last (and is backed with an unmatched two-year guarantee);
  • Peace of mind that the product is safe to use; and
  • supporting a small Australian business.

  • You can chat to us any time and we’ll gladly answer any questions.
  • We give you a two-year guarantee that means we will repair or replace your blanket in the unlikely event it breaks.

The weighted blanket’s area is the same as the top of your bed.

We make them this size as studies have shown this maximises the calming effect.

If you prefer the feeling of being cocooned, the please take a look at our weighted quilt insert options.

Occupational Therapists recommend that a single bed weighted blanket should be 10% of your body weight.

If your weight is “in between” weights or you want to give a child some room for growth, please choose the next weight up.

Larger blankets with a wider area need to be a bit heavier to achieve the same level of calming Deep Pressure Touch.

Each product page contains guidance on the best weight to choose for your blanket.

Alternatively, please look at our guidance for each blanket size here.

Yes – children younger than two should not use a weighted blanket.

If you are plan-managed, we will send your case manager an invoice that they can submit. (Please ensure that a weighted blanket has already been added to your plan or they will not pay for it.)

If you are NDIA-managed, we will submit the payment request through the portal. Please make sure it has been approved as part of your plan. We will make your blanket and ship it to you as soon as we receive payment.

Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are available in weights from 1.5kg to 12kg.

The weight is supplied by micro glass beads.

These are incredibly fine and – unlike poly pellets – have no sharp edges that could disturb your rest.

They are also silent, unlike poly pellets that can make whooshing and rustling noises.

Calming Moments operates from its factory in Greenfields, WA.

As a result, all our weighted blankets are certified Australian-made.

The outside of the weighted blankets is made in your choice of fabric type and colour.

We have a wide range of coloured cottons, sensory raised dot minky and smooth minky.

We sew two layers of cotton wadding inside the fabric.

We then sew evenly spaced pockets into the blanket and fill each pocket with an equal weight of micro glass beads.

The cotton wadding helps keep the beads spread evenly through each pocket.

This means your body gets consistent Deep Pressure Touch. It gives you the best calming effect.

All Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are completely machine-washable on cold, gentle cycle if your machine can take the weight.

If not, please take it to a laundromat and wash it there. Please do not tumble dry or dry clean.

Line dry or dry it flat.

Calming Moments makes weighted blankets for people of all ages from two-years old.

We make them in all standard bed sizes. There is no need for a specific “adult”, “teen” or “child” size.

Instead, choose the bed size that suits you.

The weight is the special ingredient that will make the weight work for your body. Please use the recommended weight guidance on each product page.

If you share a bed and your partner doesn’t wish to use a weighted blanket, then please get a single or king single size for your side of the bed.

If you and your partner are both using the blanket, then please use your average weights to calculate the blanket’s weight.

If you are a “hot sleeper”, then our cotton weighted blankets are the best option for you. They’re made from breathable 100% cotton.

If your partner does not want a weighted blanket then it is better for you to get a single weighted blanket for yourself.

(It also means that you will get the perfect calming weight for you.)
