Your child’s imagination is a sponge.
The most beautiful thing about all children is their adaptability. Your child’s imagination is like a sponge. It soaks up EVERYTHING and there’s no need for complicated toys or electronics. Give them a little space and they will handle the rest.
If you’ve noticed in the pictures, my daughter is carrying toys from The Night Knights collection. It’s a doll and book set that encourages children to feel brave and protected. These dolls are plush and super cute. Additionally, their smiles are very childlike and friendly. I’ve read this story several times to my little ones and they just can’t seem to get enough.
The Night Knights company is a family owned venture. It was originally created when Steve McKillop, the owner, needed to help his child sleep through the night. He produced a simple to read book accompanied with dolls themed as gallant knights. The story focuses on the knights’ adventures that occur while the children are sleeping. It also discusses how the knights protect all the sleeping boys and girls. The story is cute, and it’s easy for my children to use their imaginations to apply personification to their dolls.
As for Sir and Lady Sleep-a-lot, they have captivated my children’s hearts completely. Since receiving them, there is not a night, nor day, that passes without them. Be sure to check out Indiegogo for a chance to collect your very own.
