The HowdaHUG Petite seat is a great “first chair” for early years and will set the stage for good posture.
This little portable wood and canvas seat, called the HowdaHUG Petite, is made especially for little ones to feel safe in their environment.
For the smaller tot we suggest the shearling liner slipcover. It makes the seat even smaller and more cradle like.
The results of clinical trials with the HowdaHUG show improvement in a child’s ability to make eye contact with the teacher, sit longer, and maintain attentive behavior.
HowdaHUGs are Eco-Friendly
Know with confidence that HowdaHUG materials are both safe and environmentally-friendly. They consist of 100% cotton canvas and renewable American Basswood, the lightest of the hard woods. Another great feature, all HowdaHUG chairs are made in Maine, USA.

Praise for the HowdaHUG
The HowdaHUG chair has been well received by several students in my young autism class. It helps them sit while attending floor time group activities and also has been very helpful during individual work times to keep focus and reduce elopement. It allows for sensory breaks through rocking and pushing without needing to transition away from the work area. – S.S., Occupational Therapist, Baltimore, MD
The HowdaHUG chairs are, just after books, perhaps the most significant factor in our class’s Reading Workshop. Teaching in an inclusion model classroom with students who have an array of attentional, sensory, and learning challenges integrated with so-called typically developing students, I find these seats contribute to sustained reading and enjoyment of books. They are a great equalizer as all benefit from their comfort when we spread across the room. Children sit, rock, or even roll over . . . but, they keep on reading! – B.B., Hamilton, MA
