We’re Turning 2!

For our second birthday, we invite you to celebrate with us by giving back.

In celebration of our second birthday, we’re highlighting the work of a few inspiring charity organizations. In the sustainability sphere, Ocean Conservancy works tirelessly to take care of our ocean. The Child Mind Institute is dedicated to bettering the lives of children battling mental health challenges. the body: a home for love is reshaping culture around how black women heal from sexual trauma – drawing on wellness, art, and storytelling.

Below we share a little more about each of these organizations. When you purchase any of our products on our birthday, select the charity you’d like us to donate to, and for each product sold on December 5th, we’ll donate $10 to one of these nonprofits.

Looking back


Birthdays are a time when we typically reflect on how a year has passed. Looking back, a few Napperhood highlights worth celebrating come to mind.

A kid-sized Napper

Early-on in 2020, we launched our kids weighted blanket, the Nappling. Not only did this expand our current weighted blanket product collection, it paved the way for a new retail partnership with Pottery Barn Kids.

New seasons, new partnerships

Since then, we’ve also released three new collections: our Tree Napper Summer Collection, our Cotton Napper Fall Harvest Collection, and our sublimely soft Eco-velvet Wintry Gems Velvet Napper collection. Over and above our seasonal editions, we enjoyed the company of gourmet popsicle brand, The Hyppo in launching the limited-edition Napsicle and health food brand, This Saves Lives for a collaboration that helped us all reshape our Halloween rituals.

Mindful shopping is the new black

We also launched our Black Napper, encouraging a mindful shift in the typical e-commerce experience with our #sleeponit campaign, on Black Friday

Wrapping up, we’d like to extend a big, Bearaby thank you to our Napperhood community for all your support over the last two years. Here’s to many more (naps) to come!
