Worry Eaters

4.33 out of 5 stars

 Worry Eaters are soft, cuddly, plush friends who eat your worries. It's as easy as writing or drawing your worries on a piece of paper, feeding them to your Worry Eater, zip up its mouth and let your Worry Eater hold your worries for you so you don't have to.  Together, you'll get through whatever is troubling you. 



At times, childhood worries can be very BIG, and at others, very small.  No matter how big or small the worries, they are all important in the life of a child. Parents and caregivers can help kids learn to manage stress and tackle everyday problems with ease using Worry Eaters as a tool to identify worries, clarify misunderstandings or misconceptions, resolve conflicts and build self esteem, while promoting the development of healthy coping skills.  Kids who can do this develop a sense of confidence and optimism that will help them master life's challenges, big and small. 



Worry Eaters allow children of all ages a chance to identify worries and separate themselves from that worry or problem, giving the child some time to "take a break" from carrying the weight of that worry.  This separation, giving the worry to the Worry Eater, allows children the opportunity to look at the worry or problem separate from themselves.  The act of then sharing that worry with a parent, caregiver or trusted friend can help a child problem solve solutions, face that worry, and/or just acknowledge the worry exists.

Great for anxiety

Worry eaters are a cute plush toy that “eat” worries and stressors. It is a great concept that can reduce anxiety, while also acting as a toy and cuddly security blanket. I wish they had alternatives to zippers for mouths, as the teeth can be scratchy if used for cuddling, but otherwise this is a great product!

I have been using this product for some of my Autistic students and we have found it helps take some axieties away. Its colourful but not in your face. Great idea.
