Full description

Slumberkins is an emotional learning brand on a mission to empower children to be caring, confident, and resilient. Founded by a special education teacher and a family therapist, Slumberkins was created to bring effective early emotional learning tools into as many homes and schools as possible.

Bigfoot - Promotes: Self-Esteem

As little ones grow and begin to explore the world around them, they will face new obstacles. Bigfoot supports children as they learn self-confidence and reminds them that they are kind, strong, and the world is better with them in it.

Every child needs a buddy to go out into the world with. During times of stress or heightened anxiety, many children find comfort in articulating, naming, and sharing their feelings and fears. The Bigfoot Kin is just the right size for little ones to play with and confide in as they find their voice in the world.

Little ones will love snuggling up for storytime with their Bigfoot plush. Every time they hug it close, they’ll remember what Bigfoot's adventures taught them in our self-esteem books—they are unique, they are special, and the world is better because they exist.

Like all Slumberkins products, our Bigfoot Kin, and books aren’t your typical toys. Our self-esteem books and plushes are carefully designed by our team of early childhood education experts and mental health professionals to help kids and their caretakers communicate, form secure connections, and explore social-emotional learning together.

The themes in each of our childrens books truly encourage young readers to grow into their emotional self.

While it may sound complicated, learning to embrace our full selves and build strong bonds is as simple as sitting down with your young child (and their Slumberkin, of course) and reading a good story. Whether they’re reflecting on an illustration in our colorful board books or cuddling with a Kin while practicing positive affirmations or self-talk, Bigfoot will help your little one develop powerful tools like confidence and self-acceptance.

For children’s self-esteem books and self-esteem toys, turn to Slumberkins' assortment of creatures and tales. Explore what self-confidence and self-assured behavior means to you with the help of Bigfoot and the Slumberkins Confidence Crew. With a colorful and cuddly cast of Slumberkins guiding the way, the kids in your life can build self-esteem and accomplish anything.

Our Approach

Connect-to-Grow: We employ a “Connect-to-Grow” approach that can be summed up as “connect, reflect, practice, grow.” While learning will always start with connection, our approach is intended to be dynamic, rather than a step-by-step process.

Connect: Our creatures are relatable for a reason. They help parents facilitate meaningful moments of connection that allow children to feel seen, valued, and loved at the deepest level. Allowing all feelings to be expressed in these moments of connection helps solidify the bonds that are essential for an emotionally healthy childhood.

Reflect: Here we apply two definitions of “reflect,” the first meaning to mirror. Young children develop a sense of self when their parents and primary caregivers mirror and reflect back the child’s feelings, responses, and actions.

“You look like you are about to cry. Your eyes are watering, you’re holding your breath, and you’re looking down at your shoes.”

As we help our children build a sense of self and understand what it means to be human, mirroring is a way we can show our children that we accept them and that we promote the full and healthy expression of emotions.

This brings us to the other meaning of reflect. When children feel seen, heard, and understood by their parents, they can feel safe to engage in self-reflection. Parents can model self-talk, approach difficult feelings with curiosity rather than judgment, and use deep breathing or body regulation techniques to help their children internalize behavior that encourages self-reflection.

Practice: To reinforce the connection we have with our children, we must actively participate in their emotional growth journey, repeating these processes of “connect” and “reflect.” When children see a parent identify their emotions, acknowledge their mistakes, and practice self-awareness, they are actively gaining tools and coping mechanisms for emotional wellness.

Slumberkins affirmations proactively support building emotional health and resiliency for more meaningful moments throughout the day.

“I am kind. I am strong. I am brave and unique. The world is better because I am here. I like me.” —Bigfoot’s Affirmation

Grow: Growth isn’t a “final step” or linear progression. Emotional growth can be messy and uncomfortable and can start at any age. When we engage in our children’s emotional development early, we can empower them to be more caring, confident, and resilient, where they see every experience—pleasant or difficult—as an opportunity for growth.
