Ibex's story gives children the courage to embrace their deep feelings and see sensitivity as a gift that should be shared, not hidden away. Like many of us, young Ibex is born with a big open heart and often feels the pain of the world when things go wrong. Instead of hardening his heart, Ibex learns how to access resilience and do the right thing even when it is hard to do—showing us that 'toughness' doesn't mean an absence of feelings but the acceptance of them.
Emotional Courage is about noticing and expressing your own feelings, and listening to others’ emotional expression, even when that’s hard to do. It stands in contrast to the old “tough guy” model, emerging as a new path for parents and burgeoning leaders in the community. The next addition to our creature collection is Ibex, here to model a new way by showing us that ‘toughness’ comes in even the softest of forms.
Bundle includes an Ibex Snuggler, a fully illustrated board book, and a keepsake affirmation card.
Slumberkins are big believers in promoting safe sleep, and in sticking with the rules of creating a safe sleep space. For that reason, it's key to remember that if your baby is under a year old, you should avoid putting any item in the crib that may be a SIDS risk. Not sure if a particular toy is safe for your baby? We always recommend checking with your baby's healthcare provider. Slumberkins are intentionally designed without any small, detachable plastic pieces. All of Slumberkins are safety tested and ASTM certified at the highest level, which is paramount in this product category of children's toys.
