Little Man loves his Poofin. He brings it all over the place. Wait- you don’t know what a Poofin is? Let me tell you all about it
Poofin, which debuted at NY Toy Fair this year, is a fun new toy that is sure to get you and your child talking. It was created to help you and your children get to know each other better. What they like, dislike- and all their favorites. We often think we know out kids, but can be really surprised with some of their answers! Poofin is a cute, soft, plush star. Inside the Poofin, you can place little charms inside them, to personalize your Poofin and fill it with your child’s favorites. Poofin comes in 3 colors, red, blue, and pink.
Little was sent a red Poofin and a shark Charm. He thought it was fun- and wanted to sleep on it, LOL. It is soft and pillow-y!
A Poofin is an uber plush, star-shaped toy with a hollow center that can hold a collection of
small plush charms. The charms feature images of people, places and things kids are crazy
about. Over time, kids fill their pillow-sized Star with as many as 50 soft charms. Designed
to fit in a child’s bedroom, the Star and its contents allow a child to reflect on all the positive
experiences and things in their life. The Poofin Star is also perfectly portable for sleepovers and
road trips, helping kids who are on-the-go easily share who they are with friends and family.
“Poofin is a ‘must have’ for parents who want to raise a happier, more confident child,”
according to author and psychologist Maureen Healy. Healy is the founder of Growing Happy
Kids, a worldwide organization dedicated to bringing out the best in children and blogger for
PsychologyToday.com. She has written about how mirroring a child’s unique skills and interests,
an activity that Poofin facilitates, can be very positive and empowering for the child.
Poofin was tested with hundreds of kids, and one thing was certain – it got them talking about
who they are and what they like. As kids build their own Poofin charm collection, they get a
better understanding of just how awesome they are.
“A big part of Poofin is about asking questions and tapping into a child’s natural curiosity. Who
are you? Do you play a sport? What do you like to do for fun? Who is your best friend?” says
Poofin Co-founder Ann Bowar. “If the act of acknowledging what makes you unique and seeing
what makes you the one and only you can make you shine a little brighter, then we hope Poofin
can be an empowerment tool that helps kids navigate their journey through childhood.”
The first edition of Poofin charms, now available at poofin.com, features 20 unique images
of things kids love – from yummy ice cream cones, to graceful ballerinas, and even ferocious
sharks. The charms have looped tags so kids can easily attach their favorites to their backpack.
Kids can also create custom Poofin charms inside the online Poofin Factory.
