Lynx encourages your child to speak up for themselves.

Founded by a special education teacher and a family therapist, Slumberkins is an emotional learning brand on a mission to empower children to be caring, confident, and resilient. 

Promotes: Self-Expression, Inner Wisdom, Healthy Boundaries

Meet Lynx, a wise and strong companion who empowers children to voice their thoughts and feelings confidently. Lynx teaches the importance of self-expression and the vital skill of setting healthy boundaries, fostering a strong sense of personal safety and respect. Each story in Lynx's collection is crafted to encourage children to trust their instincts and communicate their needs effectively.

“I can say what I need, I know I belong. I speak my truth when I feel it, I am worthy and strong” —Lynx’s Affirmation.

Included in the set are:

  • "Lynx Trust Yourself" Board Book: This story helps instill the core belief that we can listen to and trust our inner voice, reinforcing a child’s confidence in their thoughts and feelings. It supports children in understanding that trusting themselves is the first step in expressing who they are.

  • "Lynx Sets Boundaries" Board Book: This story teaches emotional skills for establishing and communicating clear boundaries, explaining why they are essential for personal safety and well-being. It empowers children to say no when they feel uncomfortable and to seek help when needed.

  • Lynx Kin: A cuddly companion that embodies the lessons from the books, offering children a tangible reminder of their right to express themselves and the importance of personal boundaries.

Lynx is great for:

  • Encouraging children to express their true selves and understand their feelings
  • Teaching critical skills in setting and respecting boundaries
  • Enhancing personal safety through effective communication
  • Ideal for gifts that support the development of assertiveness and self-awareness

Together, this set uses foundational messages kids need to hear and practical examples of how to apply them in their own lives to help children embrace self-expression and boundary setting. The Lynx Kin set is more than just a toy—it's an educational tool that empowers little ones to trust themselves and navigate their relationships with confidence and respect.

Our Approach

Connect-to-Grow: We employ a “Connect-to-Grow” approach that can be summed up as “connect, reflect, practice, grow.” While learning will always start with connection, our approach is intended to be dynamic, rather than a step-by-step process.

Connect: Our creatures are relatable for a reason. They help parents facilitate meaningful moments of connection that allow children to feel seen, valued, and loved at the deepest level. Allowing all feelings to be expressed in these moments of connection helps solidify the bonds that are essential for an emotionally healthy childhood.

Reflect: Here we apply two definitions of “reflect,” the first meaning to mirror. Young children develop a sense of self when their parents and primary caregivers mirror and reflect back the child’s feelings, responses, and actions.

“You look like you are about to cry. Your eyes are watering, you’re holding your breath, and you’re looking down at your shoes.”

As we help our children build a sense of self and understand what it means to be human, mirroring is a way we can show our children that we accept them and that we promote the full and healthy expression of emotions.

This brings us to the other meaning of reflect. When children feel seen, heard, and understood by their parents, they can feel safe to engage in self-reflection. Parents can model self-talk, approach difficult feelings with curiosity rather than judgment, and use deep breathing or body regulation techniques to help their children internalize behavior that encourages self-reflection.

Practice: To reinforce the connection we have with our children, we must actively participate in their emotional growth journey, repeating these processes of “connect” and “reflect.” When children see a parent identify their emotions, acknowledge their mistakes, and practice self-awareness, they are actively gaining tools and coping mechanisms for emotional wellness.

Slumberkins affirmations proactively support building emotional health and resiliency for more meaningful moments throughout the day.

"I slow down and am calm. I sit very still. I take deep breaths, relax and chill” —Yeti’s Affirmation

Grow: Growth isn’t a “final step” or linear progression. Emotional growth can be messy and uncomfortable and can start at any age. When we engage in our children’s emotional development early, we can empower them to be more caring, confident, and resilient, where they see every experience—pleasant or difficult—as an opportunity for growth.
