Yak helps your child overcome feelings of self-doubt.

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-Acceptance, Perseverance, Positive Self-Talk

Meet Yak, a steadfast companion on the journey toward self-acceptance. Yak encourages children to embrace themselves just as they are, fostering a sense of self-worth and inner strength. Each story in Yak's collection imparts vital lessons on overcoming self-doubt and building confidence.

“I am loved as I am. When things get tough. I go back to my heart. I know I am enough” —Yak’s Affirmation.

Included in the set are:

  • Yak, You Are Good Enough" Board Book: This story instills positive core beliefs about self-acceptance, helping children recognize their inherent worth and the beauty of being themselves.

  • Yak Struggles with Mistakes" Board Book: This story teaches emotional skills to understand that making mistakes is ok, it’s how we learn and grow. Yak comes to understand that there is no being “perfect” and she is enough, just as she is. 

  • Yak Kin: A cuddly companion that embodies the lessons from the books, offering children a tangible reminder of their own value and the skills they have learned to affirm themselves.

Yak is great for:

  • Encouraging a strong sense of self- acceptance.
  • Combating perfectionist tendencies
  • Flexible thinking and confidence
  • Providing comfort during moments of self-doubt

Together, this set uses foundational messages kids need to hear and examples of how to apply them in their own lives to help children build self-acceptance. The Yak Kin set is more than just a toy—it's an educational tool that empowers little ones to understand their emotions and gain coping skills that can grow with them throughout their life.

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.
