Monsters In My Head has announced Whole Food Stores in the Pacific Northwest will carry The WorryWoo Monsters. Now try saying that three times as fast as you can!
So who and what are The WorryWoo Monsters? They aren’t food and you won’t find them in the freezer section. (Hint: look for them in the Whole Body Department)
They are a whimsical new series of books and plush dolls created to help children understand their emotions. The WorryWoo Monsters can be found in over 500 stores across the country as well as numerous online sites including Fat Brain Toys where the WorryWoo books have just won their first Fat Brain Toy Award! Wince, the newest Woo (the monster of Worry), and his storybook Don’t Feed The WorryBug, are featured in top holiday gift guides and just won a Book of The Year Award from Creative Child Magazine.
WorryWoos Creator Andi Green emphasized, “We believe in the correlation between a healthy body and a healthy mind. As a result, Whole foods was a natural fit for the Woos. Since our emphasis is on quality, we are delighted that Whole Foods, a company synonymous with conscientiousness ,represents our entry into the mainstream market.”
Hooray for kids toys that help with social and emotional development and are also fun to play with! (check out the Deals4Dummies review of them here)
If your local Whole Foods does not carry the Worry Woos product, don’t worry, you can request the line at your store’s customer service desk.
