Wellness isn’t just something that’s important for adults with busy jobs. It’s something we know we need to help kids to manage as they grow up as well. We know that physical and mental wellbeing isn’t a goal and an ongoing state, but learning the right tools can mean managing it more effectively. Here are some of the best wellbeing gifts for kids in 2019…
Sleep is at the centre of wellbeing, and this soft toy will be the perfect bedtime companion for any anxious sleepers. Projecting water effects onto the ceilings and walls, the Cloud B Tranquil Turtle emits ocean wave sounds as well. It’s a particularly great tool if you’re trying to wean very young children off sleeping in the same room as parents.
Colouring in books have become extremely popular for mental wellbeing in recent years. The rhythmic processes, the mind quieting, meditative nature of it, the lack of computer time. It’s good for anyone, but perhaps kids have known something we grown ups forgot somewhere along the line. For a new take on colouring in, how about this Paint by Sticker book? There’s a whole line of different books, for younger and older kids too.
If someone could take all your worries away, wouldn’t that be wonderful? Well this little guy is a tool to do just that – at least for a little while. There are two types of Worry Monster and all your little ones have to do is write down their worries on a piece of paper and feed them into the zippered mouth of their mate. Then they’re all gobbled down and dealt with. It might not solve all the problems, but it will be a lesson in letting them go for a bit.
Here to improve hand-to-eye coordination and problem-solving skills, Shape Sorters is all easy-grip textures and rewarding noises. It lights up and it stimulates the senses and it is suitable for ages six months to three years.
From Smyths Toys, this toy is for children aged three to six years. He encourages children to follow directions; get moving through games; play and press buttons; and asks questions to engage critical thinking. Movi’s facial expressions change during play and he can move 360 degrees. He’s educational, entertaining and fun.
