For my kids, stuffed animals are part of the family: our kin. And we talk about the stuffed animals constantly -- which is probably why Slumberkins' targeted ads constantly pop up on my Instagram. For months, I never stopped my scroll, simply because I didn’t think we needed another toy. I'm pleased to admit that I was wrong. Despite being my kids' new favorite toy, Slumberkins is so much more than that. An educational tool to assist with social and emotional learning, it's every parent's dream come true.
