Children often have fears, troubles and woes and don't always tell their parents about them. Psychologists and teachers recommend Worry Eaters as a waste bin for problems. Children simply write or draw their troubles and feed them into the zip mouth of the Worry Eater. Not that this solves all the problems straight away! the idea is that when a parent or carer finds the note or drawing, they can talk to their children about them. What's more, Worry Eaters are nice and cuddly in both good times and bad and not just for children. Based on Gerd Hahn's animation, they are particularly popular with children with autism, for whom anxiety can be a common issue.
Sorgenfresser are also brilliant for eating nightmares - but don't forget to supplement their diet with plenty of cuddles!
