' A fairy's magic changes red to green, gone are your worries never to be seen'
When we were offered the opportunity to review this product, I jumped at the chance. If you have read my previous blog post you will know that Isabelle is going through a bit of a hard time with over worrying and anxiety at the moment. I had actually heard of this item a few months ago but never got round to looking into it fully.
Around a month ago we actually purchased a fairy door for Isabelle's room and she fell in love with it. It leaves little gifts for her and it's helped with her sleep as she believes if she's not asleep they won't visit. Over all it's been a very comforting thing for her and I love seeing her believe in the magic of fairies. The worry plaque was actually created by the Irish Fairy Door Company and has a very simple concept behind it. A child simply places their hand on to the worry plaque, it turns red while the child is thinking about what is making them anxious and it changes to green as the fairies take away the child's worries. The worrying thoughts that have been taken away are then turned into positive magic and used to grant wishes, which is a lovely touch.
Isabelle has been using the worry plaque in the morning before school and it has been giving her a great sense of relief. It has been giving her a positive start to the day and I can see that she truly believes her worries are being taken away. It has stimulated her imagination and even though it's not a cure to her over worrying it has given her something to focus on. I definitely could have used something like this when I was Isabelle's age, such a beautiful, simple but effective product. We are willing to try anything to bring Isabelle some comfort at the moment and this has been a welcome addition to her routine.
The Worry Plaque is available to purchase from Smyths Toys and Argos priced at £19.99.
