Cuddlebuddies are soft plush animals that comes with four wooden “comfort coins.”
More than just a bunch of fuzzy toys, Cuddlebunny and its CuddleBuddies teach kids how to regulate their own emotions when they are upset by using three scientifically proven techniques for calming down: repetitive motion, positive affirmations and soft tactile comfort.
The four affirmations on the coins will help children:
1) calm themselves down when they are angry or upset
2) gather their courage when they are afraid
3) feel loved when they are lonely, and
4) feel wonderful when they are embarrassed or ashamed.
To explain the science behind the power of our Cuddlebuddies, we also include an insert for parent. To read what it says, click the “Parent’s Insert” tab to the left. This makes it an educational gift for parents as well as their children.
Four Cuddlebuddies to Choose from:
The original CuddleBunny is a 4″ fuzzball with ears. It is soft and fluffy. Its coins come in a velour pouch along with a card of instructions. Both are clipped to Cuddlebunny by a chain and clip that can also attach to a backpack, purse or belt loop. Cuddlebunnies are cute and fluffy, not squishy. They have a soft but solid core with fake fur all around.
Our newest is our CuddleTeddy, which is a 5″ tall soft tan teddy bear with a “love” bow tie. Its coins also come in a velour pouch, with a larger instruction card. CuddleTeddy is not as fluffy as CuddleBunny, but the plush fabric is soft and it is a more traditional “stuffed toy.” It has a removable ball chain at the top for hanging it onto things.
Our CuddleBug might be the choice for kids who don’t want to look like they are carrying around a stuffed toy, but still want the comfort of something soft and the coins that go with it. It is a 3x3x2″ plush zippered pouch with the coins inside. It looks like a ladybug in bold black and red colors. They aren’t quite as fluffy as the Cuddlebunny, but they are just as soft in their own way. The instructions come on paper instead of a card. They also have a beaded chain for attaching to a backpack or keys, etc.
The CuddleBear pouch is just like the CuddleBug, but with a sweet face. It is a 3x3x2″ plush zippered pouch with the coins inside. It is a soft, golden brown face with pink cheeks and a sleepy smile. They aren’t quite as fluffy as the Cuddlebunny, but they are just as soft in their own way. The instructions come on paper instead of a card. They also have a beaded chain for attaching to a backpack or keys, etc.
Designed for kids four and up.
