WorryWoo Twitch

The WorryWoo Monsters, a series by Andi Green, was first seen in a New York art exhibition in 2001. Originally called The Monsters in My Head, Green wanted to create characters with a story that each embodied an emotion. Using her design and illustration background she built 5 light boxes each containing a monster with its story Xerox-transferred to the front of the box. From loneliness to confusion, she began tackling complicated feelings and transformed them into quirky, loveable characters. Her message of “embrace your emotions” received such a positive response, she was asked by many if she ever considered turning her single art pieces into storybooks. In 2002 she began to expand her concept, but it wasn’t until 2007 that she decided to publish and produce her new collection.

We live in a very, very emotional world and often times my kids have a super hard time expressing what it is they are feeling. Getting them to open up about how they feel is not always easy. The WorryWoos help teach kids that it is ok to feel sad or lonely, and that they are not alone and can discuss what they are feeling when ever they want to! Ethan often times gets a bit overwhelmed and can not quite express how he is feeling so when we received Twitch I could not wait to share him with Ethan!

Twitch is an adorable curly horned monster who far to often lets frustration get the better of him. He tries hard to do everything right, but when something doesn’t go his way he stomps, yells and quickly gives up! If only Twitch could see that giving up is not the answer. Much like my dear Ethan, some days Twitch just feels like nothing every goes his way!

When Twitch arrives at your house, he brings along his amazing hard backed book! The beautiful illustrated story book follows Twitch through a day in his life that is filled with obstacles that are very frustrating! “Why me?” and “It’s not fair!” are favorite phrases used by Twitch, The Monster of Frustration. Though Twitch tries very hard to get everything right, he quickly gets upset when things don’t go his way. If you’ve ever had a day when everything seems to go wrong, this adventure will tickle your funny bone and put life’s little setbacks in a proper perspective. The story really meant something to Ethan because he feels the same way oh so often! Twitch has made it easier for me to discuss with Ethan that it is ok to feel frustrated with how to deal with it!

Worry Woos also help with worry, loneliness, insecurity, confusion and more!

    I can see my girls loving this too! And God knows we have all kinds of emotions going on with our two little toddlers. 😉 I worry about the teenage years if they’re this “hormonal” now, LOL
