Every parent understands the feeling you get when you have to leave your child, whether it be a business trip or first day of school. That knot in the stomach and the ache in the heart. Jo-Tutchener-Sharp had to leave her children for a lengthy stay in hospital to undergo life threatening brain surgery. This inspired her to create a brand that helps children feel more secure when apart from their loved ones. So Scamp & Dude was born. A set of superheroes who always have your back! These superheroes include the overwhelmed but incredibly brave dinosaur, the bunny with attitude, the tremendously tough balloon man and the mysterious feline force that is cat girl. At the heart of the collection is the Superhero Sleep Buddy which are shaped cushions available in two adorable superhero characters. The Sleep Buddy contains a pocket for photographs of loved ones, to keep them close by. This could be a parent working away on business, a grandparent who lives far away or simply a parent who is in the next bedroom, which can sometimes feel like a galaxy away to a small child. For every Superhero Sleep Buddy sold, another is donated to a vulnerable child, offering them a little extra security during a difficult time; this may be a child who’s lost a parent, one whose parent is seriously ill or a child who’s in hospital themselves.
Wow, this story tugs at our heart-strings. We are sure you'll love the collection as much as we do. Take a look.
