“When I really need to calm down, I like to sniff a flower and blow up a balloon, try it with me…[deep-breath]”. (Stress reducing deep breathing)

More about the Soothing Snuggler
Does it really talk?
Yes! The hands and feet of the Soothing Snuggler have a sound mechanism that, when pressed, encourages children to engage in one of four self-soothe skills.
Why are self-soothe skills important?
Learning to self-soothe is a developmental milestone just as important as crawling, walking, or talking, but unlike these skills, the ability to self-soothe doesn't come naturally; it must be taught. Toddlers have some ability to self-soothe but they're not quite able to do it all on their own, so adults often help them calm down from a tantrum or rub their backs as they fall asleep. Eventually, children learn to self-soothe, which is important because it helps them manage their strong emotions. Children who learn to self-soothe are able to calm themselves when feeling distressed emotionally or physically, and often settle easier upon nighttime waking. Children who develop self-soothe skills grow up to be adolescents and adults with better social, emotional, and physical health; and are more resilient when facing challenges.
What age is the Soothing Snuggler good for?
The Soothing Snuggler is most popular with children in toddlerhood through elementary school years. This age is also important because it's a period of rapid brain development, so experiences during this time build the brain's foundation.
Besides the home, where else would Soothing Snugglers be useful?
We'd love to see Soothing Snugglers every where little kids have BIG emotions.
They're perfect for the classroom, calm-down corners, pediatrician's offices, children's hospitals, daycares, therapy offices, emergency responder vehicles, child-advocacy centers, legal offices, police stations - every where kids are!
