Children have feelings and I think that sometimes parents like to think that they can control what their kids are feeling my structuring their lives in such a way that they are always doing things that are fun or educational, and the reality is kids not only have feelings they have strong ones and sometimes do not even have a clue how to get those feelings out.
My Happy Pillow was designed by a 6-year-old that was exactly in that position and she decided to do something about it not only for herself but for all of the other kids in the world too!
These pillows have happy cute and cuddly faces on one side and this one is pretty easy for kids to understand as, most of their toys and characters always have that happy painted face on, but what if a child is feeling sad or angry? Where is the toy and characters to show them how to do that? Kids don’t usually have things that portray that for them.
My Happy Pillow has a happy face on one side and a sad, angry face on the other, kids need to see this emotional awareness in toys and especially I think soft and cuddly things. It is ok for kids to be angry and it is ok for them to feel sad, I believe far too often kids are not allowed that freedom, My Happy Pillow gives the child a place to learn about it and it gives the parent a place to teach about it.
My Happy Pillow graciously sent me Rosie the Dog Happy Pillow and I have to tell you she is beautiful, so bright, just the right size and the emotions of happy and sad are perfectly portrayed. I did foster care and I have to say I hope some other foster parents get a set of all of these pillows to help children who cannot express themselves these are just invaluable.
These pillows make such great gifts for kids, you can go to their website here and check out the whole collection and even see the new clip on mini’s. Follow My Happy Pillow on Facebook to keep up with all of their good works!
