Slumberkins are soft, cuddly creatures that help promote positive life skills in children.
Each bundle comes with a cuddly character and board book which uses an interactive story time approach and skill-building exercises to promote positive skills for young children.
Slumberkins mission is to empower parents and caregivers to teach little ones social-emotional life skills, which in this day and age, we could use a lot more of. I feel like the expectations of children are far higher than in past years and we are losing ground on managing social and emotional skills which are so important in young children.
Each collection talks about a different life skill and has a character to fit with each. These collections include family change, mindfulness, family bonding, self-esteem, stress relief, relaxation, conflict resolution, growth mindset, and their newest addition, grief and loss collection.
We ended up with the slumber sloth, 1. Because I love sloths, and 2. Because we could all use a little less anxiety and healthier bedtime habits in our household. Slumber sloth’s story promotes sleep and anxiety, children learn to relax their bodies and minds before bed. Even at a year old the story helps Maren calm her mind and body before bedtime since the poem is like a lullaby.
She also loves cuddling with slumber sloth and has been part of her routine since she was a baby. The characters are well made, durable and very soft. They have 2 fabric options, fur and fleece, both of which are soft and cuddly. They do not have plastic eyes or noses which makes them safer for young children.
Overall we are very happy with our Slumberkins and know it will be something that will last as Maren grows. Our little guy may look a little different since he was accidently put in the dryer. Washing and laying flat to dry is recommended.
