For accommodating taller children, the HowdaHUG2 is narrower. It’s adjustable straps can adjust, creating a stronger HUG feeling. Additionally by adjusting the straps more loosely, it can adapt for growing kids.
For Smaller Body Frames
Adding the fleece liner cover provides softness for the back and shoulders. The cover increases the snug, seating experience. Rocking is both smooth and steady with the cushioned bottom hinge.
HowdaHUG materials are both safe and environmentally-friendly. Our seats consist of 100% cotton canvas and renewable American Basswood, the lightest of the hard woods and are made in Maine, USA.

“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 integrating 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!”

“The HowdaHUG chair has been well received by several students in my young autism class. It helps them while sitting and attending floor time group activities and has also has been very helpful during individual work times to get them focused and reduce elopement. It allows for sensory breaks through rocking and pushing without needing to transition away from the work area.” read more
