Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center delivers some special friends.

This afternoon, Easter Seals staff handed out Budsies to a brother and sister with disabilities.

They are huggable plush toys that are designed by clients during speech therapy sessions and then turned into Budsies.

Jamie Bandy:"We are just excited that they wanted to work with our clients. They were made in therapy sessions along with their therapists for either therapy purposes or an award for hard work and that kind of thing. So we're just really glad that Budsies was able to work with us on this."

The company, "Budsies" donated all the toys.
