Sprite supports your child as they grieve the loss of a loved one.

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. 

Supports: Grief and Loss, Acceptance, Resilience

Meet Sprite, a gentle and empathetic companion who guides children through the complexities of grief and loss. Sprite provides a comforting presence that helps children process their emotions and find solace during difficult times. Each story in Sprite's collection is thoughtfully designed to address the feelings of loss and to offer hope and healing.

“Though today is hard, I going to start the journey ahead with you in my heart” —Sprite’s Affirmation.

Included in the set are:

  • "Sprite Helps Say Goodbye" Board Book: This story helps children understand the emotions associated with saying goodbye to people and things they love. It gently introduces the concept of closure and new beginnings. *Does not specifically mention death- great way to prepare for these conversations.

  • "Sprite Offers Comfort" Board Book: A story that focuses on the healing process, teaching children how to find comfort in memories and continued love. This book reassures children that it’s okay to feel all the feelings that come with grief and that they are always connected in their hearts to the ones they love.

  • Sprite Kin: A cuddly companion that embodies the comfort and understanding the stories promote, providing children with a tangible reminder of Sprite's lessons on coping with loss and navigating their unique grief journey.

Sprite is great for:

  • Assisting children in navigating their grief journey
  • Supporting bereaved children 
  • Offering comfort and reassurance
  • Saying goodbye and hello to new beginnings.
  • Gifts for children and families who are experiencing grief or loss.

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 cope with grief and loss. The Sprite Kin set is more than just a toy—it's an educational tool that empowers little ones to embrace their emotions and find comfort in the midst of sorrow.

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.
