Worry Eaters help children calm their fears with this stuffed friend that eats their worries away.
Worry Eaters are plush friends that has a zipper mouth. Your child can write their worry on a piece of paper and insert it in the pocket and zip it up. This is a great product for children that have a hard time expressing their feelings to their family.
There are a few different friends to pick from. For the purpose of my review I received Wanda. Wanda is 13″ tall.
Why I love the Worry Eaters:
We often forget that children have worries, not just adults. Unfortunately children do not always have the proper skills to voice their worries out loud to their parents. Sometimes they are embarrassed by them and want to keep them secret. In either case, Worry Eaters are more than just a toy. It’s a very important and helpful coping tool.
I could not of received the Wanda Worry Eater at a more perfect time. I gave this to my 11 year old niece. My niece is the middle child of 3 children. She lives with her grandparents along with her 2 sisters and parents. Unfortunately right now her grandmother is very sick and it could be fatal.
The Haywire Group has been named the North American distributor for these adorable characters, the Worry Eaters.
The line of Worry Eaters was launched to retail buyers in February at Toy Fair 2015 in New York City. Eight different characters in two different sizes were introduced in 2015 with retail prices of $22.99 for the large and $15.99 for the small one.
I like to think of the Worry Eaters as a new modern twist to a diary. You can carry this plush friend with you everywhere and no one is the wiser to what is in the zipper part. If your child suffers from anxiety or just needs a hug, their Worry Eater is right there to give that much needed hug. I’m an adult that suffers from anxiety and I have some plush friends I love to cuddle with when things get tough.
Worry Eaters are great for children and adults alike.
