With a simple press-to-operate function, a timed light sequence shines from Brave and Able's tummies to help children follow a slower breathing pace, to calm their nervous system and slow their feelings of overwhelm. The light guide has an automatic five-minute shut-off function.
Made of beautifully soft fabrics in a variety of shapes and textures, these trusted companions have many sensory elements for kids to hold to help them regain focus while they practise slowing their breathing and work through their big feelings. They are also great snugglers and suitable for bedtimes.
CALM BREATHING SKILLS
Learn slow, deep breathing skills without the need for an app or a smartphone. Guided light teaches kids how to calmly take control of their breathing and regain focus. With a clearer mind you can more easily work through your big feelings and challenges. These skills can be carried within them for a lifetime, into the tricky teenage years and beyond!
Encourage regular quiet play, brain breaks and time in. Build mindful breathing time into morning or evening routines, or while kids are calm, so that these skills can be recalled in tricky situations when they need them most. Brave and Able are a tangible tool for parents and caregivers to engage children in conversations about big, confusing feelings, and provide a demonstration for how to work through them.
TAKE US ANYWHERE
Fully portable and with no need for wifi, children can practise with their Breathing Buddies wherever their adventures take them, requiring only 2 x AAA batteries for operation (not included).
BACKED BY SCIENCE
Did you know that calm breathing is a key tool to help ground your child, help performance, help anxiety, help connection and help resilience? Scientific studies have shown that slow, deep breathing has the ability to reduce anxiety, increase confidence and memory, and even grow new brain cells!
I purchased Able for my grandson to help him regulate his breathing when his anxiety is high. Able has been a comforting and helpful companion 😊
I bought this for my daughter who is anxious about school. it’s really helped her in the mornings when she is feeling anxious and we all sit and breath along with able. Such a beautiful thoughtful gift, and such amazing quality and beautifully made.
I have purchased about 5 of them as they are now my ‘new’ baby present!
I purchased Able for my kids (aged 5 & 7). It is a great tool to use to keep those big feelings in check. I was amazed at the quality of the product, every detail has been well thought out offering interesting textures and of course looks great too! Able now gets swapped nightly between the two beds and will be a much loved doll for years to come.
My son was so excited to open the box and see how it worked. He was practicing the breathing on the couch with Able and has now gone to bed, confident and settled and with a plan on what he can do if he feels anxious, even in the dark. Love love love this.
