Like I’m sure a lot of children do, Erin can sometimes struggle with being able to calm down and to relax at times. I don’t always know what to do to help her but recently, the Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy has really been helping.
One of Erin’s favourite television shows is about koalas so as soon as she saw this she was excited to get it out of the box. It’s useful to have a read of the box though before letting children rip into it as there is some really great information about what the Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy can do and how to use it.
Before using the Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy for the first time it’s important to find the on/ off switch and change it from ‘try me’ to on. This will ensure that your child can use the toy as it’s meant to be used.
By pressing the Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy paw, a 5-minute breathing meditation will begin. The toy talks about what your child should be doing or thinking about as well as taking time to breathe in and out. There’s a bright green leaf on the paw so it’s easy to find every time.
The Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy can be used in a few different ways. Children can be sat either next to or in front of the toy, have it on their chest while laying down or it can also be used in a classroom or group setting with other children present. This would also be a great way for siblings to sit and be calm together for a little while!
Erin loves to be close to the Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy while she’s doing her 5-minute meditation. Depending on her mood she’ll usually either use it on her lap or while laying on her back with the toy on her chest.
The Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy’s chest actually moves up and down during the breathing exercises. This is why holding the toy is a really great idea. Children can feel the breathing movements but still have their eyes closed.
Another great feature is that the Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy smells like eucalyptus, another way to help children be in a calm and relaxed mood. The scent isn’t too strong which is nice but you can still smell it if you’re holding the toy close to your face.
The Mindful Lil Minds breathing meditation buddy is lovely and soft with a weighted bottom so it’s great to have close to hand when children maybe need that bit of downtime. Although this is great for mental wellbeing, the sensory aspect has been thought about as well.
