Buddy Pack - Brave and Able Buddy Pack
Our Brave and Able Buddy Pack contains one Brave and one Able - the best of friends, helping to support each other to make brave decisions and give hard things a go!
- Help children learn to manage their big emotions and tackle their anxieties with calm breathing skills
- Developed with input from children’s psychologists and educators, science has proven calm breathing acts as a reset for our nervous system
- Empower kids with a tool they can use anywhere to feel confident that they can do hard things and try new things
- With practice, children will have learnt a coping skill they can use for their lifetime
- For children aged 3 years and over
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!
Thanks so much. They are lovely and my big girl (4.5yrs) is super attached and using the breathing tool to help her get to sleep and resettle if she wakes. My little one enjoys a cuddle, and we are still working on breathing technique for calming.
Also thank you for a new tool. As a mother of a neuro-typical and a neuro-diverse child it was lovely to find a tool that supports them both in such a gentle way.
These breathing buddies are truly genius! As an Early Childhood Educator for children with additional needs I've been able to use Brave and Able to assist children (as well as my own three children at home!) in managing their feelings and bringing their focus back to their breath. They're simple and easy to use and such beautiful quality - we all love them at work but none more than the kids!
Meditation and calm breathing – these terms get thrown around interchangeably at times and often get confused. You’ll sometimes hear the term breathwork, too. While they have some overlapping aspects and overlapping benefits, they do differ in many ways.
We’re going to have a look at some of the key differences.
