WorryWoo Monsters – Stories and plush toys helping kids deal with emotions

Helping kids deal with their emotions can be difficult, and incorporating emotions in play is a very good way for kids to learn how to talk about their feelings and build confidence.

The award winning WorryWoo Monsters are characters made with this in mind – cute characters that embodies one emotion each. A story book and a plush toy is available for each character, and I’m sure many kids will appreciate having a plush toy friend who’s dealing with the same difficult emotions that they themselves are.

There are six emotional characters available; Nola The Monster of Loneliness, Rue The Monster of Insecurity, Fuddle The Monster of Confusion, Squeek The Monster of Innocence, Wince The Monster of Worry, and last but not least Twitch The Monster of Frustration, which will be available this fall.

Clump-o-lump – Stuffed Animals With Exchangeable Parts

Clump-o-lump is a fantastic concept that allows children to create their own fantasy  animal by taking a series of stuffed animals apart and putting the different parts together as they wish.

The Clump-o-lump family is (at this point) a family of six stuffed animals – Tig-o the Tiger, Squid-o the Squid, Bee-o the Bee, Bird-o the Bird, Shark-o the Shark and Frog-o the Frog. All of which are made out of three parts connected by zippers. All parts are easily detached each other, allowing the children to exchange parts and assemble all sorts of funny looking creatures.

With a bunch of these animals one can make a very cool and long wormy creature, by putting a lot of middle parts together! Oh, and don’t you just love the fantastic spine detail visible in all the creatures when they are taken appart? I do!
