With school, clubs and classes, screen time, and days out she is always on the go. Apart from reading just before bed she never seems to stop.  

We have tried lots of different techniques over the years to help take some time out but nothing seems to fit.

Before you can start the meditiation you need to turn the Mindful Lil Minds Buddy from "Try Me" to  "On" which can be found on the battery pack at the back. 

Once your ready to start the mediation you simply press the green button on it's hand.

This will start the five minute mediation with your little one just needing to close their eyes and listen. 

There are four ways you can use The Breathing Meditation Buddy as follows: 

Sitting Individually

Sitting somewhere quiet your little one simply puts the Koala in front of them or on their knee. Then they can simply start the meditation.

My daughter enjoyed doing this whilst holding the floppy limbs

In a group or classroom setting

If you have more than one child or want to use for group or class mediations, ask the children to sit or lie down and closed their eyes. The Breathing Meditation Buddy can then be sat up in front of them using the weighted bottom, giving something for the children to focus on. 

Laying down with the Koala on your Chest.

During the meditation The Breathing Meditation Buddy chest moves up and down. Have your child lie on their chest with the Koala lay on it's back and their hands on its tummy so they can feel it move up and down. 

Smelling The Breathing Meditation Buddy

What We Thought Of The Mindful Lil Minds Breathing Meditation Buddy?

Review Mindful Lil Minds Breathing Buddy relaxing

My daughter adores soft toys and as soon as she saw the Breathing Meditation Buddy, the cute design was an instant hit. 

Although she needed a little persuading to do the initial mediation (she didn't have the time apparently) once she had completed it she loved it. 

The meditation voice is very relaxing and the visulisations have helped her calm down when she has been upset.

It has also become her soft toy of choice at bedtime. Lying with it on her stomach listenig to the mediation and feeling its tummy move and down to help her drift off. 

I like that the toy itself is soft to cuddle and weighted allowing it to by itself. The mediation being only 5 minutes has meant that my daughter hasn't got bored before it finishes but is enough time for her to feel it's benefit.

The Mindful Lil Minds Breathing Meditation Buddy is a great toy which can I already see will be used again and again.
