Newburyport, Mass.-based Howda Designz invented HowdaHUG seats — the ultimate, portable, floor-time rockers. Made of wood and canvas, HowdaHUGs support a child’s entire body, giving the feel of a gentle “hug” embrace. This gives children a sense of security without constraint. HowdaHUG seats are handcrafted in Maine of quality, renewable hardwood and cotton canvas. Safe for children and for the environment, the seats are designed with strong, non-fidget, adjustable straps to give each child the sensory embrace to feel calm. These patented seats have a durable interior cushion inside the bottom hinge to protect the canvas from wear when rocking on rough carpet, wood flooring or the ground outside.
