Most people have a fear of something but as adults we can work through it easier than children can. Children have a fear of something. My little guy has a fear of the dark and spiders. As a mom it takes encouraging and reassuring him that it is okay when he see’s a spider.  When’s it’s night time and his room is dark his night light helps but he still has the fear.  Sometimes children need something special to make them feel confident. Worry Eaters  is a line of plush dolls that perform a miraculous deed – they eat childhood fears! 

WORRY EATER ENNO, Worry Eater, Kids, Fears

Each whimsical plush character has a hang tag that explains to tots as young as 3 years that if they write their concern on paper — or draw it if too young to write — and tuck it into the plush’s zippered mouth, their Worry Eater will hold on to that fear for them, so they can get a good night’s sleep. In the morning, their fears usually don’t look so large after all!

My son loves drawing his fears and then giving them to his Worry Eater, Enno. The outcome of casting his fear in Enno’s zippered mouth is that it gives this little boy a sense of peace. During the day my little guy likes to keep his little treasures in Enno’s zippered mouth for safe keeping. What a great dual purpose!
