Zoey had trouble sleeping lately. She’s at that age where kids at school tell scary stories and they keep her up at night. I will be honest when she walks into our room in the middle of the night it can be hard to find the right words to say. We are caught between being startled and still half asleep. It has become a routine. Some times words are not enough to send a child back to bed calmly.
The Power of Milo:
A few days ago the new Flip N Play Friends from Flip A Zoo joined our family (the puppy/rainbow troll one). Although almost her size, Lia walks around with it all day. Zoey had just played with it here and there since Lia laid claim to it. The other night when she walked into our room afraid of the dark a lightbulb lit up! I said, “Zoey what if you slept with sister’s puppy pillow? Would that help?” she replied with a huge smile and a “SURE!”. She set this 2-in-1 toy and fluffy pillow as a pillow and went to bed. The rest of the night we slept in peace, all four of us.
The following morning Zoey and Milo (my kids name their stuffed animals) crawled into my bed to snuggle. I asked her how her night had been and she told me Milo kept her safe & she “Slept the best ever!” She decided that since her sister loves to play with Milo too, Lia could have him during the day but at night he needed to keep her safe. I think that is a happy medium if you ask me!
You never know when a stuffed animal can provide security and comfort for a child. This Christmas bring that same amount of joy, love, & security to your favorite little ones with a Flip N Play Friends ! Not only are they both a stuffed animal and a fluffy pillow, you have two characters in one. With a quick flip you have yourself a completely new friend!
For Lia, Milo is a fun toy that happens to be extra cuddly. For Zoey, Milo is her bedtime companion and body guard. Both girls have done such a great job sharing we are making our way to Wal Mart and surprising Lia with her very own Flip N Play Friend under the tree this year!
