Bean is a really cute realistic red or brown dachshund puppy plush toy that has been weighted to 800g for sensory input. OT’s (Occupational Therapists) recommend weighted toys for those with sensory needs to provide sensory relief and to relieve anxiety.

Dachshunds were bred 300 years ago in Germany to hunt badgers. The name Dachshund literally means “badger” (dachs) and “dog” (hund).  They are also called Weiner or Sausage Dogs and the actual hot dog was named after them.

Bean measures 30cm/12″ in length, 13cm/5″ in height to the top of his head and 13cm/5″ in width.
