Worry Woos Dolls are loveable Monsters with a an inspirational story book every kid will enjoy.
Worry Woos Monsters helps teach kids to understand difficult emotions and feel safe with their feelings. The cute monsters are 11” high, each with adorable large eyes and a signature Worry Woos belly button. Children can embrace these dolls and they learn to embrace their own emotions.
These monster dolls each come with their own Worry Woos books (sold separately), and are meant to encourage parents and children “to openly discuss emotions and not candy-coat feelings”, says Worry Woo creator Andi Green. She is hoping these dolls and books for kids 3+ will encourage people to admit to the unpleasant and hard to talk about feelings and emotions.
These carefully designed books are hardcovers and are hand illustrated with pen, ink, and watercolor. A large picture of the character is on the front of each book. The Worry Woos books are printed with soy ink to be environmentally friendly, and have 67 -92 pages, depending on which book you buy. These sweet stories follow the account of a monster suffering in a situation we can all relate to. The books teach that if you can keep an open mind you can make changes for the better.
The Worry Woos started in 2001 as dolls in Andi Green’s display, called “The Monsters in My Head”, at an art exhibit in New York. In 2007, after many suggestions that she write books about the characters, Green published these children’s story books and came out with these Worry Woos dolls.
The Worry Woos are a parenting and toy award winning collection of monsters, each troubled by a particular unhappy emotion.
The current collection (and more monsters are on the way) include Nola the Monster, riddled by Loneliness; Rue the Insecure Monster embarrassed by his nose; Squeek , an Innocent Monster too afraid to leave his safe zone to venture out and make the friends and adventures that he longs for, and Fuddle a Monster Confused by choices, who just needs to learn to trust herself to make decisions.
