Helping to fight fright

What a cool surprise I had last night when I got home from (un)work: this cute plush toy had arrived for Lucas, for free, from The Shrunks!
Some time ago I registerd for their site on the 'join the fight' section, because they're a very cool and creative company that sells toys that help children face and fight their fears through turning them cute instead of frightning, and I wanted to keep track of their new stuff. I had no idea that by doing it I'd get this free toy. Lucas simply loved this Alien monster. It says on the tag: "Afraid of being taken away, to a far away place? Alien is not afraid. He travels great distances, making fear disappear. Alien knows just what to say, to help his friends overcome their fears. Be calm, Alien is here. So, what are you afraid of?" Now talk about timing! Exactly when we're on the verge of moving, he gets this cute toy that deals with... distance places! Couldn't be better. Lucas slept with it on his pillow all happy.
If you check this site you'll see how cool their produts are,  if I could I'd buy that super-fun air bed for him!

It would be fun if this kind of thing existed when I was that frightened little girl years ago...

What an absolutely fantastic idea! I wonder if they have cute witches? I'll have to go see.

I'm glad it's helping Lucas. Cute little guy!

It's getting to be that time to think about dreamboards, figure out what we would like to as for. I wonder if he will like to play with us this month? No pressure of course! He's got a lot on his little plate.

That is so cute! What a great idea! I hope it helps him with the move. =)

I hope that toy comforts him and helps him with the move. It's a very positive move, so at least he will pick that up from you and have excitement instead of fear, and little Alien will help!

Another example of just the right thing at just the right time. This is such a positive move for you all, and now Lucas has extra help.
