The worry monsters were the best thing that happened to my boys! It started out with my oldest at the time was 5 years old who was taking medicine for his seizures and was giving him nightmares and just in general made him sad a lot. When my son met his friend, Ben, in Cub Scouts and became great friends. Wonderful Ben designed a monster for my son as a gift. The monster has reduced his worries and nightmares. "Monstie" goes everywhere with my son. Of course, my second child wanted one so Wyatt designed one for him. My boys love these monsters! They are so unique and soft and the boys will keep them forever!
