The Adult Weighted Blanket is 122cm x 198cms. It comes in 4 weight sizes, 5Kg, 7Kg, 9Kg and 11Kg.
The Child Weighted Blanket comes in 2 x sizes and 2 x weights. 2.2Kg (76cm x 102cm) and 3.3Kg (105cm x142cm). The 5Kg Adult blanket can also be used for older children.
The blanket weight recommendation is around 10% of your body weight. We have a range of adult weights available to suit all shapes and sizes and also have children's blankets available. Please note, purchasing a heavier blanket will not necessarily show better results, we recommend you stick with 10% of your body weight.
Our weighted blankets are made with quality materials. The micro beads are glass which make them sustainable. The inner blanket is made out of cotton and the outer cover is a soft minky material. The summer covers are 600 thread count cotton for a lighter feel.
Yes, our weighted blankets are machine washable. Simply remove the inner blanket from the outer cover and wash separately on a gentle cycle.
To dry the blanket, we recommend air dry or tumble dry on an air only setting. Although our blankets are safe to tumble dry, we advise not to do that too frequently because it could cause the integrity of the fabrics to deteriorate.
3 new minky blanket cover colours!! Our weighted blankets are available to purchase in Camel Beige, Dusty Pink and Sapphire Blue.
When using the cover, the blankets give a medium amount of warmth. The inner blanket is made of cotton and the outer cover is a soft minky material. Remember, these blankets are designed for weight so they are able to be used all year round.
We have now also added Summer cotton covers to our range. Our summer covers are 600 thread count cotton for a lighter feel.
If your blanket is pooling during use, we recommend you tie the loops inside the cover to the blanket which will keep the weight evenly distributed.
Intelex’s heatable soft toys are manufactured and filled in China, with the exception of the Hot-Paks® which are made in Australia. All of our soft toys are made from microwave safe, flame resistant fabric. The filling consists of microwave safe polyfill with natural grains and dried lavender. The products filled in China contain millet; the Hot-Paks® contain wheat. All materials have been specially designed to be heated in a microwave.
We use only 100% natural dried lavender flowers in all our products. The lavender fragrance will fade over time. This can be refreshed by adding a couple of drops of Pure Essential Oil. It is important to use only “Pure Essential Oil” as the cheaper “Fragranced Oils” will leave an oily mark on your microwavable bedwarmer.
Intelex’s microwavable soft toys are designed to be heated in a microwave oven only.
NEVER try to heat your soft toy in a conventional oven. For best results place the product in the microwave for a maximum of 90 seconds on high for a 600-800 watt oven or 60 seconds for an 8501,000 watt oven.
Absolutely! Simply pop your soft toy inside a plastic bag and leave it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. You can then use your soft toy as a cold pack or to help cool your child on hot days.
Manufactured with extra strong seams, using microwave safe thread and fabrics, Intelex microwavable bedwarmers won’t spill or scald like a hot water bottle.
Intelex heatable soft toys have been tested to the Australian/New Zealand Toy Standard AS/NZS ISO-8124 Safety of Toys - Part 1 "Safety Aspects related to mechanical and physical properties for ages 0 to 14 years"; Part 2 "Flammability"; and Part 3 "Migration of Certain Elements".
Intelex heatable soft toys also conform to the UK Toy Standard BS-EN71/2/3, the UK Microwavable Personal Warmers Standard BC8433:2004, MDA and European CE standards and have been flammability and safety tested.
Intelex products are TGA registered. TGA Registration No 281342.
There are concerns about babies overheating and these should never be ignored. Intelex recommends following current advice in relation to SIDS. More information may be found on the Australian SIDS website
This is quite normal. It is due to the natural moisture content of the filling and will cease after the first few uses.
Diabetics are known to suffer from decreased sensitivity in their feet and therefore may not feel the heat as readily as non diabetics.
The surface can be cleaned with a damp sponge. Your heatable soft toy should never be immersed in water. The filling will be damaged if this happens.
Please note CHEWIGEM is NOT suitable for children under 36 months , due to long cord, strangulation risk
This is almost impossible to answer. We wish we could be clearer. We would hope if your child is mild-moderate in their chewing you will get anything from 4-12 weeks from it. But we have seen some people destroy them in a few days and others last 8 or 9 months. It will depend on the pendant you choose, and how that works with your child's particular chewing style. Whether they chew all day? A few hours a day? Only at anxious events? So all of those factors affect how long they last. As a 30+ something adult, I with a full set of teeth, I cannot break them, but kids with a chewing need often have extremely powerful jaws.
The jewellery is hard wearing but will tear, break and dent in time. They are all made of exactly the same silicone, but each design seems to vary in its likelihood to become damaged. It will depend on the aggression and style of the chewer. Our customers tell us that their children all have a favourite and one which works out to be more robust for that child, but there appears to be no rhyme nor reason to this. For example, one child may destroy a disc in a few days, but the dog tags will last months, while another child may find the opposite.
Once damaged, the necklace should be discarded and replaced. The breakaway clasp and cord are NOT for chewing and are purely to hold the necklace in place. We strongly recommend not to pull on the cord HARD whilst the pendant is being chewed as this puts force on the stringing hole which is the weakest point of the necklace and could cause it to break.
MOST CHILDREN USE THE BANGLES FOR CHEWING AT HOME - SOME PARENTS PUT THEM ON A LANYARD
Yes. The silicone we use meets the same standards as any product which is suitable for chewing, as it is non-toxic. But due to the fact this market will cause damage to these items, it is to be remembered that this product should be used with supervision.
We know when it comes to our children, safety is so very important. As such we have secured the CE mark against the required Toy standards for the bangles. This is probably a bit extreme, as they are not toys but this seemed the most robust test. We have also carried out toxicity and bite tests on all our products.
We only use silicone which is a food safe, medical grade silicone and is free from all the harmful chemical properties that meet this standard.
