Enno the Worry Eater (Sorgenfresser) Keyring
Enno has milk chocolate & cream coloured stripes across his tummy. My daughters can't quite decide if he reminds them of a dog, cat or bear, or some wonderful hybrid in between. His mouth is secured with velcro and can be opened and closed so he can be fed small pieces of paper.The keyring is secured to his head.
This innovative toy is brilliant for 'eating' nightmares and acting as a ‘waste bin’ for worries of all shapes and sizes. Children simply write or draw their troubles on a piece on paper and feed them into the zip mouth of the Worry Eater.
Measures approx 10cms in height. Other varieties available. Suitable from 6 years +
Why they'll love itSome worriers find the simple act of writing down what is bothering them helps, or sharing it with another person (or creature!). This toy can help children share what is on their mind, in a way they might not feel ready to with a concerned adult.
Worry Eaters can even make helpful suggestions, remind a child of their strengths or maybe even just leave them a joke (ready to be found in the morning in their mouth, in place of the worry).
